THE Hastings Valley Vikings have plenty to play for when they take to the field this year in the Mid North Coast Rugby competition.
The club is celebrating its 20th year, the Vikings will be attempting a trifecta of grand final appearances and will aim to take out back-to-back premierships.
On top of that coach Andrew Kable has tentatively decided to call it quits at season's end.
"This will be the third year coaching the club and although the passion is still there it takes a lot of time away from the family," he said.
"It will give me a chance to focus and them and their sporting passions."
Kable was determined to go out on a high and said there were positive signs throughout the club ahead of their 2015 title campaign already.
The club has signed a couple of talented names that have joined the squad and only one player from last year's successful run will not make an appearance.
And it's clear the players are eager to make a make on the 2015 competition.
Training started on Monday with a number of players taking advantage of the new High Performance Centre which is a sponsor of the club. Kable said it was priceless to have the partnership with the gym and said players were meeting three times a week to train.
On Monday its the northern stairs at Shelly Beach, Oxley Oval on Wednesday and Lighthouse Beach on Friday.
The coach said anyone interested in having a run could meet up with players at either of the days from 6pm.
"There's a really good feeling in the club," Kable said.
"We've got the core group of players that are really enthusiastic to get the year under way.
"It's going to be a big year."
