In Summer 2016, we will be offering Co-ed Multi-Sports, Soccer, Baseball/T-Ball, and Flag Football camps. All camps last one week and we welcome and encourage children to attend as many weeks of camp as possible; many children attend camp for the whole summer. Camp runs from 9.00am-3.00pm each day. Early drop-off (8.00am) and late pick-up (6:00pm) are available every week. Non-Brookline residents are welcome to attend our camps. The coaching and instruction offered at all Viking Sports Camps is intended to meet the needs of players of all ages (grades entering K - entering 7) and skill levels. Children will not only work on individual skill development, but on how to effectively participate on teams, as well. All camps will be co-ed. The philosophy at all Viking camps is safety, good sportsmanship, and fun.
Viking Sports Camp Coaches
All coaches are carefully selected based on their enthusiasm, professionalism, and experience. Our pool of highly qualified coaches includes undergraduate and graduate college students, athletes, teachers, and established coaches. Every Viking coach is dedicated to helping children learn and play sports. The coach to camper ratio complies with Massachusetts Health Department guidelines and is as follows: 1 coach per 5 campers for children 6 and under; 1 coach per 10 campers for children 7 and older.
