Let’s get it on, Jets fans. The first of two Jets full-squad minicamp practices open to the public will be held as scheduled this morning.
The North Jersey area around the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, N.J., got a soaking on Tuesday and there were early reports of more rain for today. But this morning blue sky is peeking through, the forecast is for clouds only and temperatures are set to rise into and through the 70s.
And the Jets have declared that all activities are on for today. Practice will start at 11 a.m. for all veterans, rookies and first-year players and is standing room only for fans.
The gates will open at 10 a.m. for early-arriving fans. Jets Fest, featuring inflatable rides for kids, skills challenges, face painting and more, and Jets Shop, stocked with all new Nike jerseys and apparel, will be open from 10 till 2:30 p.m. Admission and parking are free but parking is limited.
Thursday’s practice has the same schedule, and that will be the final public view of the Jets before they break and then return in late July to go to SUNY Cortland to begin their 2012 training camp. The weather for Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with temps in the mid-70s.
As always, fans can find practice and schedule updates on newyorkjets.com, Twitter or Facebook or can call the Jets Minicamp Hotline at 973-549-4844.
