The practical part of the presentation included master classes both on and off the ice, during which the participants became acquainted with the principles of coaching players between the ages of 10 and 12.

Furthermore, a cooperation agreement was signed with the No.2 Trans-Baikal Sports School of the Olympic Reserve. The methods of the Red Machine National Development Program will now be taught in the school.

Governor of the Trans-Baikal Territory Alexander Osipov:

- We have great potential and a lot of talented guys, but we need to create the required facilities so that everyone can get involved with sport. The Red Machine National Development Program has entered our region for a reason. In 2020, the authorities and Nornickel signed an agreement concerning the development of ice hockey in the region.

We are trying to build open ice rinks throughout the territory of the region, and now we are considering the possibility of increasing the amount of indoor rinks. The signed agreement should provide us with long-term cooperation.

The main principles of the Red Machine National Development Program were discussed at the official presentation together with the coaches from local sporting schools.
