2023 Jets Soldiers to Sidelines Highlights

Dec 01, 2023

During our Salute to Service Week, Soldiers to Sidelines in partnership with the Jets and Ticketmaster, hosted a Virtual Football Coaching Certification Seminar for over 100 participants. During their guest speaker series, Jets General Manager Joe Douglas addressed the group and held a Q&A session with the Soldier Coaches. Over the course of the program, the Soldier Coaches learned the process of becoming a football coach and earned coaching certificates following the seminar.

Later in the week, the Jets and Ticketmaster hosted over 30 participants at an in-person seminar at MetLife Stadium for a full day of strategic coaching seminars and classes. Soldier Coaches were given a tour of the Jets Locker Room – where each participant was surprised with their own personalized locker nameplate, custom Jets x Ticketmaster x Soldiers to Sidelines gear, Jets yearbooks, Jets legacy mini helmets and $200 MetLife Stadium gift cards, courtesy of Ticketmaster. All Soldier Coaches and Soldiers to Sidelines staff wrapped up their week with tickets to the Jets vs. Chargers Salute to Service game, which was provided by Ticketmaster. Soldiers to Sidelines hosted a tailgate prior to kickoff and all participants were honored on-field during the game for earning their coaching certificates.
