Van Andel Arena and iHeartMedia are thrilled to announce the return of Jam at the Van, the high school boys basketball event that last tore up the Van Andel Arena court in 2010. The 2021 Jam at the Van will feature four games with eight Michigan high school teams competing for glory on Thursday, December 30, 2021. The match-ups include:
- Grand Rapids Catholic Central vs. Grand Blanc
- Ferndale vs. Orchard Lake St. Mary’s
- Romulus Summit Academy vs. Kalamazoo Central
- Rockford vs. Ottawa Hills
More information will be announced soon, including game times, ticket prices and the ticket on-sale date.
The return of Jam at the Van comes on the heels of the MHSAA High School Boys Basketball Division 2 and 4 Semifinals that took place at Van Andel Arena on April 8, 2021. Capacity restrictions in effect due to the COVID-19 pandemic caused the MHSAA to relocate the Semifinals to Van Andel Arena, and the opportunity for the schools to compete in an arena of that size was exciting for the student athletes, their families and the coaches.
