Offering affordable, year-round sports programs and summer camps to children in Strathmore and surrounding communities. Our programs are designed to keep children active, develop athletic abilities, and build self-esteem in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
JETS ATHLETICS has been in operation in Strathmore since 1995. Adapting and evolving to meet the needs of Strathmore Youth specifically, our JETS name stands for "Just Enjoy The Sport." We strive to make learning the various sports fun, exciting, and challenging. We strongly encourage good sportsmanship, with little emphasis on keeping score or statistics until the players are older. All of our programs are designed to keep children active and to develop their athletic abilities, while building self-esteem in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Sportsmanship, fitness, and skill development are all emphasized and all children are encouraged to participate, regardless of their previous experiences and abilities. Coach Pat Fule, a high school teacher, has over 30 years of coaching experience and has worked with children of all ages and abilities in a variety of sports. Coach Fule is constantly adapting his lessons to meet the needs of his participants.
JETS has been a regular sports fixture on Monday nights in Strathmore for many years. We offer basketball, badminton, and volleyball programs to children from Grades 1-9 and would love for you to join us. Our programs are designed so that when one sport ends, the next one begins, allowing children to stay active throughout the school year and participate in all three of our sports programs if they choose. We have also been offering summer camps and are now offering a Spring Break Multi-Sport Camp as well!
Many of our players go on to become coaches with us, and we love that progression. They learn leadership skills and volunteerism. Some players get serious about the sports and progress to competitive school and/or club teams. We are proud to say that many of our former players have gone on to play at the University of Calgary, SAIT, Mount Royal University, St. Mary's University College, Augustana, Medicine Hat College, Briarcrest College, Concordia, and Cape Breton University.
Whether that happens or not, JETS ATHLETICS will give your children a safe and enjoyable place to learn sports, have fun, and develop social skills. We love what we do, and we want your children to, as well. That is exactly why our motto has become "Just Enjoy The Sport!"
*There are no costly uniforms, no hidden costs, no fundraising, and no need to worry about score-keeping and/or refereeing as parents. We want our parents to enjoy our programs as well - we even allow post-dated cheques to help make things more affordable for our families (see specific dates on the information pages).
