Sticks are for Kids goes outside at Germantown REACH

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. - The Mississippi RiverKings brought hockey to the Germantown REACH summer camp in Germantown, Tennessee on Tuesday, June 7 for an afternoon of hockey as part of the RiverKings "Sticks are for Kids" program. 

"I know the kids really enjoyed learning a little about the game of hockey today and getting to play in a game themselves" said camp director, Sarah Blackwell. "This was a good experience for them and it fit perfectly as a part of our team sports week at camp."

The campers were taught the basics of hockey such as how to hold a hockey stick, the different positions on the ice, and how to shoot and score all with an emphasis on fair play, team work, and sportsmanship. The camp was held outside so after the lesson, campers took to the field for a game of field hockey, a first for the program.

The "Sticks are for Kids" program gives children the opportunity to play hockey at local camps and schools in the Mid-South. For many participants, it is their first opportunity to play hockey.
