RiverKings Bring "Sticks are for Kids" to the YMCA Summer Camp at Olive Branch Elementary School

SOUTHAVEN, Miss –  The Mississippi RiverKings brought their fun-filled "Sticks are for Kids" event to the kids of the YMCA Summer Camp at Olive Branch Elementary school on Monday. A total of 82 kids aged 8 and 9 turned out to wield sticks and test out their skills in an obstacle course and play against each other in simulated games. 

The Sticks are for Kids initiative is aimed at introducing kids of all ages to the sport of hockey, and also teaching some of the basic fundamentals like rules and objectives as well as encouraging sportsmanship and fair play. To schedule your church group, summer camp, or school with the RiverKings "Sticks are for Kids" program, call Community Development Coordinator TJ Chillot at 662-253-0177.
