This one is for the moms out there. The Jets, along with Chase, are sponsoring an event to involve all of you.

On Monday, October 6th, the Jets will be hosting a football clinic at their headquarters, the Atlantic Health Training Center. From 5:30-8:30, components of “Heads Up Football”, a program we are all familiar with on TV, will be taught to Mom’s, familiarizing them with proper tackling techniques, among other items.
