There will be plenty of activities to enjoy at these events while celebrating rugby and positive mental health. You could meet the Viking players, take part in touch rugby sessions with the Vikings and meet Kemic the mascot or even have a health check/get food, nutrition and weight management advice.

There are lots of prizes on offer too, such as a Kindle (one to be won at each event), cash vouchers, match tickets and Grand Final tickets and Viking rugby jerseys (at every event). A young person will have the chance to win the prize of being the team mascot for the first Viking Superleague match in 2012.

There will also be children’s art activities and tai chi or zumba at the events.
