Attendees receive a T-shirt donated by Team Sales Vancouver Island and collectible player cards which can be used in a draw for prizes at the U SPORTS National Championships which the Vikes athletes are also preparing for. The championships are Nov. 7 to 10 and UVic is hosting this year so most games will take place at Centennial Stadium.

Waitlist spots for the soccer clinic are still available and admission is free. Anyone interested in attending can sign up through the Lower Island Soccer Association website.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the local food bank.
