For an event entering just its second year of existence, there couldn’t possibly be more buzz about this year’s edition of The Jump, the massive pep rally held annually to celebrate The Rock’s upcoming basketball season.
This year’s event – The Jump Built by Maven Construction — will tip off this Friday, November 3, with a fan zone starting at 5pm and The Jump itself at 6pm.
Fans and media will once again be packing The Rock’s gym to the rafters, ready to meet this year’s talented rosters and coaching staffs.

But make no mistake, the crazed environment of The Jump isn’t just about some ho-hum player introductions. It’s about fun — and so much more.

According to national team head coach Justin Harden, this year’s event will build on the success of last year’s inaugural event – with a few surprises in store that are sure to be a hit.
“We have been able to spend more time on planning it this year, so that should make it even better than last year,” Harden said.
Sponsors Making an Impact
Also making a difference in Year 2, according to Harden, is the level of sponsor interest that has come to the event.
“We are so excited to partner with some of our corporate sponsors who have invested in this event and our program,” he said.
“We couldn’t do most of this without their generous support, so we are really thankful to all of our donors and sponsors.”
