PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING!!!
Viking’s Fall Four-Day Half-Day Camps are SHINE ONLY Camps. This means in the event of rain, camp would not run that day. The Friday of each week is the make-up day if a camp day is rained out. If there is no rain in a week, there is no camp on Friday. If there are two or more rain-outs in a week, you will receive a refund for all of the canceled camp days. (i.e. If there are TWO rainouts in a week, you will receive a refund for ONE day since your child was able to attend THREE days of camp and this is FOUR day camp). We will only issue refunds for days that we (Viking) cancel.
All weather notifications will occur by 12pm at the latest each day. We will update our twitter account (@VikingSportsMA), our facebook account (@VikingSportsMA), our home page (www.vikingsports.com), and by email. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions.
At Viking’s Brookline Soccer Camps**, we teach campers both basic and advanced techniques of soccer, including dribbling, passing, receiving and shooting. We keep it fun and lively with games like Goalie Wars, Dynasty, and 4-way Soccer. All Viking Brookline Youth Soccer Camps conclude with the Viking World Cup! All Viking campers will receive a Viking T-shirt and Certificate of Completion.
**Due to the social distancing guidelines that are currently in place, our multi-sports camps will not include any close-contact games and all of the sports, games, and activities we play at camp will comply with social distancing guidelines. As we get closer to the start of camp, these guidelines may loosen allowing for more close contact games, but in the meantime, we are preparing for this camp to follow the social distancing guidelines currently set forth by the DPH.
New Protocols, Procedures, and Precautions*
*the following list is a brief overview of just some of the new protocols, procedures, and precautions Viking is taking at camp in 2020. Please CLICK HERE for a full detailed list of all changes. As the fall progresses, some of these protocols may change. These changes may occur due to new guidance from the health department or we may determine better operation procedures as the camp season progresses. This is all new to us, and we hope you can bare with us, and thank you for you patience.
