Red Machine training event in Zapolyarny

Specialists representing the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (RIHF) conducted master classes as part of a three-day training camp for young ice hockey players in Zapolyarny.

The event was organised by Nornickel.

More than 70 children from sporting schools located in the cities of Zapolyarny, Sputnik and Nikel took part in the training program which included lessons both in the gym and on the ice. All sessions were conducted in accordance with the Red Machine National Development Program.

The lessons were conducted by former professional players and current specialists of the Red Machine National Development Program Andrei Ivanov and Vadim Krasnoslabodtsev, with ex-Russian national team representative Nikita Filatov assisting them as a guest. The aim of the lessons for the youngest set of players was to improve coordination, puck-handling techniques and how to handle the stick correctly. Meanwhile, the lessons for those aged 10-13 were designed to help them improve their speed, and classes for participants aged between 13 and 18 were aimed at learning how to use their body weight correctly and implement team tactics in the required manner.

Mini competitions were staged during the third day of the event. It's also worth pointing out that RIHF representatives gave recommendations to coaches and shared their experiences of coaching.
