Key Dates for 2014 Training Camp:
SUNY Cortland will host the first 16 practices of training camp, all open to the public. The team will break camp prior to their Week Three preseason game against the Giants, then return to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center for the remainder of preseason.
The team will hold an exclusive practice for Season Ticket Holders on Monday, Aug. 18. Two open practices will follow on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug 19-20. At each Training Camp location, fans can enjoy Jets Fest, featuring skills challenges, music, face painting, inflatable rides, and the Jets Shop tent filled with new merchandise for the 2014 season.
On Saturday, Aug. 2, SUNY Cortland will host the annual Green & White practice beginning at 7 p.m. This event will feature gameday-like festivities including player introductions, National Anthem, fan contests, Jets Fest, and the Jets Shop. Practice will also be broadcasted on 98.7 FM ESPN New York.
On Thursday, Aug. 21, the team will travel to Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island for Jets Family Night, presented by JetBlue. Family Night gives fans special access to a walkthrough practice beginning at 5:30 p.m. Long Island fans will have the opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes access to a team walk-through the night before the Jets take on the New York Giants in the Annual MetLife Bowl. The event is free and open to the public. It will feature Jets Fest, Jets Shop, food, music and entertainment. At the conclusion of practice, selected fans will participate in a field goal kicking contest for the chance to win a free roundtrip flight on JetBlue.
Players will continue the great Jets Tradition of signing autographs for fans after practice along the fence line. However, autographs are not guaranteed for every fan in attendance. In addition, at all practices Gen Jets Kids Club members will have a kids-only player autograph area. Space is limited to the first 100 kids each day, so fans are encouraged to check in their children upon arrival at the Gen Jets tent.
Admission to all Jets Training Camp events are free, but tickets are required. Fans can register and print tickets, as well as find information on parking and directions in the coming weeks onnewyorkjets.com/camp.
While the Jets invite all fans to attend open practices, please note that practice may be cancelled or closed to the public in the case of inclement weather.
