In order to comply with Global Game Jam’s age requirement, we will be separating teams into two leagues within our event.

Senior League

  •  All team members must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Senior League teams will be eligible to register with the Global Game Jam

Junior League

  • Teams may include jammers under the age of 18.
  • Junior League teams will not be eligible to register for GGJ, due to that event’s age restrictions
