About Us

- Our Mission -

To Make Sports Safer, More Affordable & More Convenient.

We believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to participate in sports and have access to all of the physical, social, emotional & cognitive benefits that organized sports provide. In 2017, we created Vikn Sports to eliminate barriers to sports participation and build healthy communities. We provide affordable solutions for youth & varsity football organizations with rent, rent-to-own & purchase options for protective equipment.

Proper equipment fit is vital for sports safety. Our team of athletic equipment specialists provide custom fittings to ensure the best fit for each athlete. Safety is our #1 priority. All equipment is maintained to NOCSAE Standards.

To keep your gear up to the highest levels in safety, we offer equipment reconditioning, recertification & sanitation services. We come to you! Our crew will bag, tag & ship your equipment for reconditioning/recertification and deliver it back to your organization. We offer mobile sanitation solutions from our Vikn Sports van. Equipment is treated with Ozone (O3) which is a gas that kills 99.9% of viruses, molds, and bacteria, including Staph and MRSA. 

Our team of experts deliver to organizations throughout the US, providing product knowledge, reliability and convenience. Drop us a line & let us know how we can help your organization!

“Vikn Sports has eliminated all of the equipment management hassle that I've had to deal with in the past.  They deliver equipment, handle the equipment fittings, make any needed adjustments during the season & pick the equipment up at the end of the season to sanitize and store until we need it for next season.  It doesn't get much easier than that!” 
COACH, TEXAS FOOTBALL TEAM
