“The KanJam World Championship is one of the greatest days of the year, and I look forward to it every August,” said Adam Williams, long-time KanJam player.
KanJam is a two-player flying disc team sport. The sport, which originated in North Tonawanda, involves two goals (cans) and a flying disc. Teams take turns throwing and deflecting the flying disc at or into the goal to score points. The KanJam World Championship is the premiere, daylong event for the sport, where the official World Champions are crowned.
