To our athletes and Cambridge Jets Family, 
 
Our heart breaks that today black men, women and children cannot run safely in their communities. The Cambridge Jets stands against police brutality and stands with all those peacefully protesting. We hope one day change will come.

Coach Spikey shares her favorite stretches. Stretching is very important to not only runners but all athletes, it can help you to prevent injury, recover from an injury, and compete at a higher level.  It has always been a primary focus for her, especially when she is recovering from an injury.

Snap Fund Raising for Club Championship Trip 

We want the team to participate in the AAU National Club Championship this July in Florida. The meet is on 7/7-7/13 at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex which is located adjacent to the Walt Disney World® Resort Theme Parks and Hotels. This will be a great experience and fun for the athletes and their families.  Jets athletes are eligible to compete at the club nationals if they meet the Jets Qualifying Standards

We know this is a costly trip and want to maximize the number of athletes who can attend so we have started a Snap Raise fundraising campaign. You have received an email that explains the process.  


Even if you can not participate in Club Nationals, we hope that you can help with the team fundraising.
