Down, Set, Hike! As summer winds down and fall sets in, sports fan's thoughts naturally turn to football. Football fans can see the stars of tomorrows big league games in action as another season of Jets Football has kicked off. The players have been working out and having hard hitting practices at Van Lieshout Park for weeks now, and players and coaches alike are fired up for Tuesday's big season opener. We kick off our season at home against longtime rival Freedom on Tuesday, August 19. Judging from the work the players have been putting in, they're up for the challenge.
For those new to the program, Jets Football was started in the Village of Little Chute in 1971 and is currently one of 11 teams belonging to the Heart of the Valley Football League. The league does not encourage the "winning is everything" or "win at all cost" philosophy. This level of competition is intended to be a safe and fun experience for both the players and coaches. The Little Chute Jets Football program consists of three teams - a 6th grade team, a 7th grade team, and an 8th grade team. They play eight games in their season, with four games played at home on the Little Chute High School football field.
We're very excited about the continued success of this awesome program and encourage you to come watch the teams in action.
