The Victoria Royals are going viral for their impeccable execution of the Header Challenge in a video that was originally posted on Twitter by Royals forward, Dante Hannoun.

The video features the hockey team showing off how well they can handle a soccer ball, in addition to their responsibilities on ice.

The challenge is headed by Hannoun, who bumps the ball back and forth between several other members of the Royals, before ultimately directing it into a garbage bin, resulting in an explosion of cheers from the team.

At the time of publication, the video has 209,000 views on Dante’s Twitter page, and has been retweeted by Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Smith (whose song was playing in the background), and by the TSN official Instagram account.
