Official Vikes partner Thrifty Foods has demonstrated commitment to delivering sport and active living opportunities to Victoria’s youth by expanding its long running Vikes Thunder Squad program to include the Vikes TLC Camps this year. In the spring and summer months, the Vikes and Thrifty Foods will also be working together on the annual Vikes Relays and Vikes Summer Camps program all with the goal of reducing barriers to participation.
