A dozen amateur clubs with 300 young players have been set up so far; every year, the company directs more than RUB 2.2 million to support children’s Russian hockey games, buys new equipment, and renovates sports playgrounds. The most promising sports players move on to Uralsky Trubnik Children’s Sports School to build up on the hockey club’s talent pool. Dmitri Chernykh, who used to practice at the amateur club Yuny Stroitel as a child, proved one of the best hockey players at the championship.
