Jets Football Program

The Jets Football program is open to upcoming 6th, 7th, & 8th graders who want to participate in a tackle football league.  The league does not encourage the "winning is everything" or "win at all costs" philosophy.  This level of competition is intended to be a safe & fun experience for the players and coaches.  All reasonable efforts are made by the coaches to include all players in each game.

2020 Jets Football Player Registration Packets are available in April at Little Chute Park & Rec or it can be downloaded by clicking HERE. Registration packet contains important information and forms that must be completed and returned prior to the registration deadline.  There is a $60 per resident and $70 per non-resident player registration fee for Jets Football.  

All players & parents are required to attend the Jets Meeting with coaches in early May at the Little Chute High School Auditorium (details in registration packet).  Prior to the start of the meeting, parents can turn in completed registration paperwork with payment.  All players are required to turn in their current physical paperwork to the LC Middle School Office by the deadline.  Physical forms and alternate year cards are part of the registration packet.  

The 2020 Jets Football season WILL HAVE A DELAYED START of Tuesday, September 8 (due to WIAA Board vote on 7/23 to delay start of football programs due to the pandemic).  Please note that players will have equipment handout on Thursday, August 27 during the day, and that there will be a mandatory parent/player meeting that evening at the field (please see revised schedule for details).  Practices are held at Van Lieshout Park, and home games are played at the Little Chute High School (1402 Freedom Road).  Please note that an entrance fee is charged to attend all jets football home and away league games.

If you have any questions regarding the Jets Football Program, please feel free to call the Park & Rec Dept at 423-3869.

NOTE:  All jets football players will be required to have a Baseline ImPACT test prior to the start of playing season if they were not tested last year.  Test is computerized and takes about 25 minutes to complete.  Information on registering for a Baseline ImPACT test is listed in the Jets Football Registration Packet.  Head injuries are on the rise for athletes at all levels of play. It is estimated that between 1.6 and 3.8 million concussions occur in the USA per year during competitive sports and recreational activities; however, as many as 50% of concussions may go unreported.  Testing must be done before a concussion occurs in order to establish a baseline “or normal” cognitive score. Baseline tests are suggested every two years. If a concussion is suspected, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT test, which professionals can use to assess potential changes or damage caused by a concussion.  If a concussion is suspected, please contact a provider who is clinically trained in concussion management and ImPACT.  A complete list can be found by contacting Nurse Direct at 1-800-362-9900.
