First festival of the Junior Sledge Hockey League will take place at the Khokkeynyi Gorod (Ice Hockey City) of the SKA hockey club in St. Petersburg. 10 teams of children with disabilities from 9 cities around Russia will participate in the competitions: Tropik (Tula), Umka (Odintsovo), Krasnaya Molniya (Krasnoyarsk), Kryliya Sovetov (Moscow), Snegiri (Moscow), Kryliya (Saratov), Atal (Cheboksary), Sibirsky Lis (Berdsk), Avrora (St. Petersburg), and Bashkirskiye Piraty (Ufa). Festival organizers have been preparing this important event during the last two years. Aiming to advance the skills of the young sledge hockey players, the League organized special training events for them every year, including international camps and get-togethers as well as exhibition games. The combined team of the Junior Sledge Hockey League which included 12 players from 7 teams has won the golden prize recently at the Canadian Cruisers Cup-2018. Step by step, our young sportsmen grew stronger in terms of their physical and spiritual condition, gaining more confidence in themselves. Now the teams are ready to take the ice in order to show everything that they have mastered. The Junior Sledge Hockey League festival is not only a competition per se, but also a big family event. Children will get yet another opportunity for practicing their skills on ice and meeting their friends from other cities. Parents and other participating adults will share their best practices: it is not a secret that nurturing children with special needs takes an enormous amount of work. “It is very important for us to help kids with health limitations to engage in their favorite sports activities. We could see that many of such children choose sledge hockey: it is confirmed by the growing number of sledge hockey teams around the country. This sport is developing because of the efforts by and support from all those who really care about it: children who have a desire to play sledge hockey, their parents who support them, volunteers as well as charitable organizations. Everyone is welcome to come and support sledge hockey players during the festival at the SKA’s Ice Hockey City. These dedicated and persevering kids really deserve it!” says Igor Baradachev, deputy general director of the Elena and Gennady Timchenko Charitable Foundation.

Open discussions on Age as an Art are now a tradition. This time around we invited the following literary figures to a comfortable room in the Volkhonka Mansion: the poets Vera Pavlova and Akh Astakhova and Aleksandr Tsypkin, the author of the short story collection «Zhenshchiny Nepreklonnogo Vozrasta [Unaging Women]». The meeting was moderated by the journalist and director Fyokla Tolstaya. Old age has been «pushed back», and the panellists believe that post-retirement age is a great time of life: you are still active and healthy, but for you to realize yourself, certain conditions must be in place, yet in Russia, it is even difficult for a senior citizen to get a job, unfortunately. The guests also talked about their visions of their own old age. The issues discussed also included purely practical matters; how to dress appropriately for your age, whether it makes sense to live in an extended family with children and grandchildren if you can afford to get your own place; and deeply personal questions: whether you can divorce after the age of 70, what the right way is to go about writing your last will and testament. The discussion turned out to be honest and sincere, and the guests seemed to have already got used to the fact that you can talk about old age in public, that the word «old age» carries no shame and that you can treat ageing as a happy period in life. Gathered in the room were young people, for whom the subject of old age is not something they think on a daily basis, and senior citizens, who are now in a position to live for themselves and have some alone time. They asked questions and shared their own opinions. Below are the most interesting snippets of the discussion.
