MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Dynamic Duo Sheldon the Turtle and former RiverKings captain Darrell Stoddard visited the "Around the World Sports" camp at the Children's Museum of Memphis to talk hockey with the campers on July 9.

Hockey expert Stoddard taught the basics of positions, passing, and shooting as a part of the Sticks are for Kids program. After the lesson, teams were coached in 4-on-4 scrimmages as Sheldon cheered on the sideline and visited with the campers. 

The Children's Museum of Memphis (CMOM) is a nationally accredited museum which opened in June 1990. The museum offers a variety of summer camps, as well as fall and spring programs and special events. The focus of the "Around the World Sports" camp is to teach "basic skills in a variety of popular sports activities and games played all around the world" while developing "the spirit of teamwork". Sports along side the Hockey unit include Cricket, Archery, Lacrosse, Martial Arts and Trapeze. 

If you would like Sheldon to visit your camp or event, please contact Caitlyn Hutchins at Caitlyn@riverkings.com or 662.342.1755.
