Jets Community Involvement
Community Involvement is a major component of our organization’s success. Commitment to our community through our players, coaches, volunteers, and partners is something our organization can be proud of. We are committed to a variety of non-profit organizations, elementary schools, indigenous programs, and sporting associations. We work diligently to create a long-lasting partnership with these organizations to assist them in their fundraising efforts and create awareness for them through various community events. It is imperative that each and every member of our team accepts the responsibility of being a Jet not only on the ice but off the ice.
