RiverKings Community Efforts in Full-Swing

SOUTHAVEN, Miss – The RiverKings community efforts have reached full-swing over the last couple weeks, with plenty more in store for the immediate future.

The Jr. StreetKings youth roller hockey league has needed to battle the elements and some remnants of Hurricane Harvey, but with seven games already in the books, the kids are in mid-season form. Three teams consisting of 9-10 players make up this season's league, with contests taking place every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday night at the Hernando Civic Center in Hernando, MS. The Yellow Jackets sit atop the league standings with the Blue Blaze in second and the Rink Rats in third.

The RiverKings also continued to spread the game of hockey with their Sticks are for Kids program stopping by Getwell Church on Wednesday evening. A class of 31 took part in drills and scrimmages emphasizing the teamwork and strategy that comes with the game. 

Continuing their community efforts, the RiverKings will be in multiple places this coming weekend including another Jr. StreetKings game, Down Syndrome Association of Memphis' picnic at Goodman Oaks, and Unite the Night walk benefitting CSF Memphis.

If your organization has an event, after school program, or would like to schedule a mascot appearance, contact Community Development Coordinator TJ Chillot at 662-253-0177 or tj@riverkings.com.
