HERNANDO, Miss. – The Jr. StreetKings Roller Hockey Program hosted it’s ‘Learn to Skate’ camp May 8, 9 and 10, teaching Mid-South youngsters how to rollerblade and improve upon their roller hockey skills before the 2012 Jr. StreetKings Spring League begins Tuesday, May 15.

Jr. StreetKings is a roller hockey league for youth ages 4 to 17 years old, and is directed by Mississippi RiverKings Head Coach Derek Landmesser. Jr. StreetKings hosts all of its practices, games and events, at the outdoor roller rink on the grounds of the Hernando Civic Center (3800 Robertson Gin Road).
