The camp will be instructed by the Vikings Men’s Soccer athletes with organization and curriculum designed and developed by Head Coach, David McCarthy.
Coach McCarthy is excited for the upcoming camp. “This is a great opportunity for my players to connect with community soccer kids. They obviously have a big passion for the game to share and I think it’s a good experience for them to develop their leadership and communication skills on the coaching side of the game,” he says of his Vikings players who will take the lead on mentoring camp participants, under his direction. Team Captain, Mark Wrubleski adds, “I’m excited to coach the kids because I grew up playing soccer in Camrose. I am looking forward to helping the kids expand both their soccer skills and social skills in a team atmosphere. I think those are key no matter where a person goes in life.”
More information on the Camp and other youth program opportunities can be found on the Vikings website – along with the opportunity to register online. Only a limited number of spots are available to preserve a quality ratio of Coaches to young athletes.

Spoon River is a band with a colourful past. In their newest record The New Sun Ahhhhh Hotel, due out October 21st on Tonic Records, they have offered up pulsing tributaries of sun drenched psychedelic rock & roll and scuffling garage boogie. Reminiscent of such offbeat musical trailblazers as The Growlers, The Royal Trux, King Tuff, Exile Era Stones, T-Rex and Memphis Garage heroes The Reigning Sound, Spoon River seamlessly fortify these influences with a heavy dose of their own wild and weaving brand, to invoke a strutting mixture of fear and exuberance, menace and acid-laced beauty.

Songs for a New World is, according to composer Jason Robert Brown, “about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.”
With a rousing score that blends elements of pop, gospel and jazz, featuring tight harmonies and darling vocals, Songs for a New World transports its audience from the deck of a spanish sailing ship bound for a new land, to the ledge of a New York penthouse. Characters range from a young man in the Bronx who dreams of becoming a famous basketball player, to a forlorn and neglected Mrs. Claus lamenting as Christmas approaches.
A small but powerful diverse cast and a supercharged, well crafted score appeal to old and new generations alike as each character -- in their own way -- takes hold of that one moment and enters a new world.
