HERNANDO, Miss. -- There's a big difference between the ice at the Landers Center and the heat at the Hernando Civic Center, but sun and sweat don't stop over twenty campers from attending this week's Jr. StreetKings Learn-to-Play camp.

The Jr. StreetKings kicked off their summer session with a free Learn-to Play camp Monday evening at the Hernando Civic Center. The campers range from 3-13 years-old and feature both newcomers and returning players.

"It's a week I look forward to," Jr. StreetKings Director Josh Herbert said. "Games are incorporated in each day and we focus on that day's skill. The kids are just having fun and don't realize they're applying what they just learned."

Over the four days of the camp, campers learn the fundamentals of skating, stick-handling, passing and shooting with each day building on the previous. The summer Learn-to-Play camp continues tonight from 6-7 p.m. For more information, check out www.jrstreetkings.com.

The Jr. StreetKings summer league begins Monday, July 1 at 6:30 p.m. with player evaluations and draft. To register, download the registration form at www.jrstreetkings.com.
