A Jam is a gathering of Traceurs at a predetermined spot to train together, almost always a very relaxed environment. Jams are open to anyone and everyone who would like to come out, everyone is encouraged to join in and train but if they just want to hang out and watch, or bring a camera to get some video footage or pictures, that’s perfectly fine too. Larger Jams some times extend invitations out to a national scale and become National Jams, like our Annual Chicago Colossal Jam.
These, like Jams, are gatherings of Traceurs. Training Sessions are often smaller and more dedicated though, focusing more on pushing yourself and progressing.
