KanJam World Championship

The game of KanJam evolved from a group of guys playing a garbage can flying disc game in the 80's and 90's. In 1990, just a handful of teams competed in the first ever World Championship tournament. Paul Swisher, who helped organize the tournament, became the first champion, along with partner, Greg Opalinski under the team name of "Dooleys." Swisher, along with his friend Charles Sciandra, would later set out the task to patent the game which would lead to the great game of KanJam!

Team Domination

Today, more than 100 teams on average compete every year in the KanJam World Championship. This tournament is a day-long event, which takes place in North Tonawanda, NY (home of KanJam) on the second Saturday in August. This is an outdoor tournament, hosted by Kan Jam LLC. The winning team is crowned as the official KanJam World Champions and have their name etched onto the "Hammer" Championship trophy.
