Community Involvement

Community Involvement “Started in the fall of 2006.”

  • Jets Student-Athletes are involved in many community activities and the program feels very strongly and encourages our athletes to give back to Vauxhall and their own home communities/provinces.
    • AADAC – Anti-spit tobacco campaign and presentations.  6-9 student-athletes spend several weeks organizing and presenting interactive messages about the harmful effects of chewing tobacco.  Over the last 3 years over 1000 Junior High students have been affected by the Jets presentations.  The event has been sponsored by the Alberta Government and New Era Hat Company.
