After a slow start to the season the team has improved its game over the past games with good progress in the league as well as in the national cup. This year’s Jets is a good mixture of experience with a total of five Swiss, two Swedish and two Czech national team players together with rising young talents. The first goal is to win the semi-final and to then fight on Sunday for the CC 2020 title.

Better not give this winger too much space as you may pay it by a ball in your own net. This 20 year young player not only brings great passing skills to the offence, but also great shooting. This, thanks to great technical abilities.

Chosen as the best goalkeeper of the league in the championship winning season 18/19. She is THE insurance in the Jets net. A technically versatile goalie with a great sense for the game and not only building a wall since many years in the Jets goal, but also in the Swiss national team

After taking a one year break from playing, Rydfjäll made a rock solid comeback in the Swiss league and made it directly to the Swedish national team to go on an win her fourth world championship title in Neuchâtel 2019. But she’s not only rock solid in defence, she also brings scoring skills with her. You may not notice her by looking for spectacular moves, but for sure by her solidness.
