Joining the Jets
So what's involved? Is it a big commitment?
You could say that, both for the athletes and for their parents. On average there are two track meets a month,(typically on weekend days) and practice is twice a week during the Indoor Season and three times a week during the outdoor and cross country seasons.
The Cambridge Jets are committed to your children and the sport and have established themselves as leaders in the New England Youth Track community. The Jets have taken on the responsibility of hosting some of the major track meets in the region. Parent involvement is needed during these events.
Sounds great how can I join?
