The Jets Track Club is back!! After searching high and low for coaches the Jets have been blessed with ex-athletes and parents who are willing to give back to the Jets community. Practices will be held at 6:00 p.m. at the Festus High School Track on the following dates:
Wednesday, May 13 Thursday, May 14 Wednesday, May 20 Thursday, May 21 After that they will meet each Tuesday and Thursday beginning May 26 and concluding on June 30. (The season may be longer for those athletes who qualify for the USATF or AAU Junior Olympics.)
The cost for joining the Jets is $50 and each athlete must obtain an AAU card on line by the second practice. Click here to go to the site and obtain your card. Use Club Code WW6B97. We will also need a paper copy of the registration website form, medical website form, a copy of your child's medical insurance card, and a copy of their birth certificate. Each athlete will receive a t-shirt and possibly another Jets item. Uniform tops will be available on a first come first serve basis for $20 each. If you choose not to purchase a uniform top the athlete may participate in their Jets t-shirt. Meet registration will occur at practice for each meet your child may choose to participate in and the cost (usually around $10-$15) will be due upon registering for the meet. A USATF card will be required for the championship meet. You can check out area meets here.
Please make sure your child comes to practice ready to listen and participate. They will not need any special equipment just running shoes and something to drink.
