RUSSIA HOSTING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

The Ball Hockey Federation is an interregional public organization established to promote and popularize the Russian hockey league as a sport, and to stimulate interest and increase the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle among the population, paying special attention to children and youth. FBH is a member of the World Ball Hockey Federation (WBHF) and represents the interests of Russian hockey in international ball hockey organizations.

 

President of the Federation of Ball Hockey of Russia - Sergei Viktorovich Gerasimov. Born in the city of Moscow, in a family of athletes. Pupil of the CSKA sports school for ice hockey. During the last 15 years she has been actively involved in Russian and international ice hockey tournaments. Multiple participant and two-time bronze medalist of the world championships in ball hockey in the national team of Russia and the European team. Since 2017, actively engaged in the popularization and development of hockey in Russia.

The main purpose of creating this sport is to attract children, teenagers and adult athletes to participate in the training and competition process in this sport, as close as possible to classical hockey with a puck. Anyone can participate in the game. Skating skills are not required, specialized equipment is not needed. This is what makes ball hockey easier for the child's perception and allows you to quickly improve your skills, thereby increasing self-esteem and giving confidence to your sports forces.

This will entail the development of players as athletes not only in this sport, but will also allow in the future as players from ball hockey to go to hockey with a puck or in hockey on rollers, and hockey players to continue their careers already in ball hockey. All this will enable athletes to improve their sports skills. Thanks to the use of a ball hockey, it is possible to play games on lawn covers, rubber coatings and concrete pads. Main principle remains - play anywhere and anytime. People like to play hockey, and ball hockey is the easiest way to get started!

In the plans of the Federation for 2018-2019: to recognize in Russia ball hockey as a sport, to open a network of schools and sections across Russia, to hold the European Championship, to hold annual All-Russian championships among children's, youth and adult teams, to open courses on training of coaching and refereeing staff, 

ABOUT THE CHAMPIONSHIP

In Russia for the first time will host the World Championship on ball hockey. An unprecedented event, organized by the IPO Federation of Ball Hockey Federation, will be held June 12-17, 2018 in the Moscow Region, in the Ice Palace of the city of Dmitrov.

The holding of the World Hockey Championship was agreed and approved for holding in the territory of the Russian Federation with the International Bolling Hockey Federation (WBHF). The championship will be held in two categories (men and women) with 6 teams each.

According to the most conservative estimates, about 400 foreign athletes - participants and guests from Canada, the USA, Great Britain, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Europe and Belarus will come to the World Hockey Championship. During the competition, the total number of fans of the Championship will be about 10,000 people, according to organizers' forecasts.
