The Vikings host their 1st Annual Women's Mini-Camp at Winter Park. Over 200 women of Minnesota attended this three hour, station style camp and learned about concussion awareness/ helmet fitting, Fantasy Football, and the Vikings/NFL History. Participants also got to hear a "State of the Game" presentation from GM Rick Spielman, take a tour of the locker room and meet and greet Viking Legends Carl Eller and Ricky Young.
The mission of Minnesota Vikings Youth Football (MVYF) is to increase awareness surrounding player health and safety in the great game of football. We also strive to spread the message of Vikings Football to greater Minnesota youth football programs and give opportunities to communities that are not as often impacted by Vikings Initiatives.
While continuing to support the Twin Cities area, we will create and administer new events and programs that focus on introducing football moms and women of Minnesota not just to football basics, but also to the many facets of the game. The goal of MVYF is to become a grassroots resource for football coaches, players, and parents to help continue making football an exciting yet safer sport.
