Children’s Sledge Hockey League with support from the Charitable Foundation of Elena and Gennady Timchenko will hold for the first time a conference called “Promotion of children’s disabled hockey in Russia”, to address the issues of physical rehabilitation and socialization of children with disabilities through team sports, with hockey used as a case study. The event will take place on 5-6 September in Moscow.
