Vikings Volleyball Classic Tournament



Parents, players and coaches, 

It saddens us to report that our Vikings Classic home tournament will not be able to go forward this year.  The tournament has to be canceled altogether due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although we tried to hold out hope for a date in April, under Governor Walz's executive order, the schools are closed until May 4th.  We are a small club, with many, many multi-sport athletes.  If these kids have a chance to get part of their spring sport season in this year, we will support all of them in playing those sports.  We know this is disappointing to so many of you.  It is disappointing to the board and the coaches too.  We look forward to hosting this tournament every year.

I want to thank North Branch Area Schools, especially the Community Ed Program, for working with us year after year to make our club successful.  I want to thank the Board for their commitment to this club and their efforts throughout the year.  I also want to thank our coaches - your time and commitment to the kids is impressive and selfless.  To our parents, thank you for trusting us with your children. I believe every team showed growth and teamwork and that there were/are still good things to come! To our players, we do this for you.  We are sorry it ended abruptly.  It would never be our choice to end your season like this.  Don't lose hope, we will be here when we can play again, in a safe environment!  


COVID-19 is serious and the greater good demands that we do everything in our power to control the spread right now.  Please follow the CDC, medical and scientific guidance to help flatten the curve. We look forward, anxiously, to next season.  On behalf of Vikings Volleyball, we wish you blessings and health.  

Stay safe,
Jan Bernier,
Director, Vikings Volleyball
