About the program

We make sports accessible to everyone, regardless of age, physical data and place of residence. The program «Sport» is aimed at popularizing a healthy lifestyle, creating favorable conditions and additional opportunities for sporting children and youth.

We apply a comprehensive approach, which includes the contest projects «Good Ice» and «Chess in Schools», the professional training of coaching staff and the release of methodological literature, as well as competitions and mass events that make sport an event in public life. A special feature of the program is a partnership with leading sports federations, experts and educational institutions, which ensures the sustainability of the results.

The program sets the task, which we will pay special attention to in the future work, to make sports more accessible for orphans, for children from low-income families, for «difficult» teenagers, that is, for children in difficult life situations.
