Video Assists Training

Viking coaches are using software in their practices to isolate players and their fundamentals.  The team can video plays and then stop action to pinpoint specific tactics that are being used.  Coaches are using the system to help players better understand how to stand, block, and defend.  They can follow action through a play and highlight specific individual efforts.  The tool will help players develop better skills.  Viking football will begin with a jamboree on August 30th with Marshfield, Pleasant Hill and Bandon.  First game will be September 6th at Elmira.
