We highly recommend joining the club for the best skill training obtainable. For the past ?ve years the C.U Jets have worked in partnership with the BAFNL Premiership local team The Coventry Jets. The majority of our coaching staff are premiership division veterans. Most of whom are past or present GB players or coaches respectively. The team also supports a number of student roles which are ?lled by Students outside of the team and are designed to enable the student to get valuable referenced experience.

Becoming a jet isn’t just about joining a sports team, we are a unit. We take great pride in the way we conduct ourselves with each team member. We aim to influence a family like bond through the club so that every member has a positive influence on one another and aims to strive and achieve the same goal.
