The annual Ritzville Jamboree kicks off the gridiron season for the Lind-Ritzville/Sprague Broncos football team on Friday, Aug. 24. The jamboree begins at 6 p.m. at Jimmie Snider Field.

The annual event allows coaches from across Eastern Washington to participate in a preseason event and give the teams an opportunity to fine-tune their skills and determine line up positions for the start of the season.

This year, the teams participating in the jamboree are LRS, Colfax, Davenport, Chewelah, Medical Lake and Northwest Christian.

The jamboree also serves as an opportunity for LRS to prep for the season opener game against Asotin on Sept. 1.

The jamboree is played in a round robin format, with each team receiving 40 total plays: 20 offense and 20 defense.

During the event, there are no scores kept and special teams and kicking are not allowed.

Admission to the event is $3 for everyone ages five and up, and season passes are not accepted for the event.

Concessions will be available at the event as well.
