September 20, 2012, VICTORIA – The University of Victoria Vikes are proud to announce that they will once again partner with 100.3 The Q in order to host the second annual TLC Fund for Kids Soccer Camp. The half-day camp on Oct. 19 will see current Vikes soccer players coaching participants aged seven to twelve with all proceeds from the event going towards the TLC Fund for Kids.
“This is our second year partnering with the Vikes and it’s been a great fit for us,” said Doug Marin, account manager at 100.3 The Q. “They are a very successful sports program in this city and when parents are looking to put their kids into something like soccer, where would you sooner send your kids to learn the sport but to a varsity team? Even better is that all the proceeds go right back into the TLC Fund.”
The TLC Fund for Kids was established in October 1998 as a means of raising funds for any not-for-profit organizations in the Capital Regional District that dedicate themselves to children’s health, happiness and betterment of life.
The University of Victoria Vikes soccer program is part of a lengthy tradition of excellence and with consecutive men’s and women’s CIS National Championship hosting duties, culminating with the 2012 CIS Women’s Soccer Championship Nov. 8 – 11 at Centennial Stadium, the Vikes are proud to promote soccer and youth involvement in sport throughout the Capital Regional District.
The camp will run Oct. 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will include a lunch. As a part of the registration fee participants will also receive a t-shirt and up to two tickets to see the CIS Women’s National Soccer Championship Nov. 8 – 11 at Centennial Stadium. Please note that there is a maximum of 150 participants and registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
