The Junior Vikings camp will stress learning and growth as a football player, a teammate and a young man.  Proper fundamentals, techniques, effort and sportsmanship are vital to being a Niles North Junior Vikings football player.

Correct strength, speed, agility and conditioning techniques will be a main focus. Participation is vital to each athlete’s success on and off the field regarding the 2015 season.
