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.

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.
