The New York Jets will officially start 2013 training camp at SUNY Cortland on Thursday, July 25, when the team reports to campus.

The first practice open to the public will be Friday, July 26, kicking off three weeks of action by some of the highest caliber professional athletes in the world. Tens of thousands of fans are once again expected to visit the Jets practice fields at SUNY Cortland during the three-week camp.

In addition to watching favorite players from the sideline at public practices, fans can pick up the latest gear and merchandise at the Jets Shop tent and check out this year’s new and improved Jets Fest, an interactive football theme park for children with skill challenges and inflatable rides.

Admission, as always, is free. This year, however, tickets printed from the Jets website will be required. Fans can register and print tickets by visiting newyorkjets.com/camp before making the trip to camp.

Camp visitors should use SUNY Cortland’s Stratton Drive entrance off of Route 281. Parking attendants will greet fans at the entrance and direct them to the camp parking area. SUNY Cortland charges a $5 parking fee.

Following each practice, Jets players will usually be available to sign autographs for fans along the sideline. Visitors should note, however, that autographs are not guaranteed. Available players will sign autographs if weather, time, and other circumstances permit.

In addition Gen Jets Kids Club members will have a kids-only player autograph area at all practices.  Space is limited to the first 100 kids each day, so fans are encouraged to check in their children upon arrival. 

The 2013 camp will be the fourth under five-year head coach Rex Ryan. It will be the first camp however, for John Idzik, the Jets' new general manager, and several new members of the Jets’ coaching staff.

"We're looking forward to our return to SUNY Cortland,” Idzik said. “My visit earlier this spring only served to confirm what staff members and coaches told me prior to my visit. The facilities and fields are top notch and the people are very warm and hospitable. The environment provides an excellent setting for training camp as we continue our preparations for the upcoming season."

SUNY Cortland’s partnership with the Jets continues to provide year-round opportunities for the College’s students and alumni. It also generates more than $5 million in tourism spending in the region every summer.

“We are eager to once again welcome the New York Jets back to our campus for their 2013 training camp,” SUNY Cortland President Erik J. Bitterbaum said. “Our partnership continues to open new and exciting opportunities for our students, our alumni and our community. We are incredibly proud that our campus and staff are able to provide the kind of top-quality, professional experience this elite athletic organization requires.”

Camp visitors and fans can find practical information about the 2013 Jets Training Camp on the SUNY Cortland website.

Although the Jets invite all fans to attend open practices, please note that the schedule listed below is subject to change. Practices may be cancelled or closed to the public in the event of inclement weather.

Fans should call the team’s fan line at (973) 549-4844 or visit the team's Training Camp page for the most up-to-date news regarding practice schedules. Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

All camp visitors will be subject to new security procedures upon entry. Unlike previous years, this will include screening and bag searches.
