CORDOVA, Tenn.  – Chants of “Sheldon!” and “RiverKings!” filled the air at the Cordova YMCA camp at Saint Luke’s Lutheran Church on Thursday morning as part of the “Sticks are for Kids” program.

Sheldon and the RiverKings’ “Sticks are for Kids” program gave the kids a lesson on hockey in the gymnasium and, after a picture session, goals and sticks were brought in to give the kids a chance to shoot for a prize.  

“The Cordova YMCA camp kids were all super excited to meet Sheldon and learn about the Mississippi RiverKings,” YMCA camp director Carly Pirani said. “Everyone had a really good time shooting at the goal with Sheldon.”

If you would like Sheldon to make a visit to your school or organization, please contact Caitlyn Hutchins (communitydevelopment@riverkings.com) or call 662-342-1755.
