13 times world champions (1977-1980, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1989, 1992, 1999, 2002, 2003, 2011). Before World Championships were organised by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), Russia U20 won the unofficial World Championship three times between 1974 and 1976. The country's most talented young players compete for the team, a lot of them go on to play for the senior national team.

During each season, Russia U20 participate in different international tournaments, with the majority of them taking place in Europe. One of the most important competitions is the Super Series in Canada, where Russia U20 play against the best players from the QMJHL, OHL and the WHL.
