Hello friends! My name is Timur Khamidullin! I am the founder of the international children's hockey camp Hockey Star. The aim of the project is the development, promotion and popularization of hockey among young athletes, increasing the accessibility of hockey for everyone.
Trainings are built in the best practices of the Chelyabinsk hockey school, in which the traditions of the Soviet school are preserved, and the entire coaching staff are former professional players with regalia and extensive experience working as trainers!
For this great contribution to the development of children's hockey in Russia, the Hockey Star camp was awarded the BUSINESS SUCCESS national prize.
Once, the dad of a boy who was already at our training camp appealed to us for help.
The boy’s name was Ilya. At that time he was 11 years old. Ilya suffered from colon carcinoma. Ilya’s mother died of this disease. It was necessary to raise $15,000 for treatment. Then I just sent a message asking to help Ilya and his dad via all my chats and social networks and with joint efforts the necessary amount was gathered!
A little later a whole team of children from Omsk, Soyuz 66 who were also at our training camp, requested to help them with hockey uniform and with tickets for a trip to Sochi to the finals of the All-Russian Golden Puck tournament. Due to the negligence of the authorities, the children's team, allegedly, did not have the budget for the trip, although by law the city authorities should allocate a budget for such events. The authorities said: “You have won the qualifying tournament and you should pay for the tickets!" The officials planned that another team, financed from the funds of a wealthy sponsor will play in the national tournament, but not Soyuz 66 that was not widely known.
But why do children who deserve this trip should stay at home because of some bureaucratic muzzle that spent budget money on solving their own problems? And I thought that justice should prevail! Again, thanks to joint efforts we collected the necessary amount, and the happy children flew away for new victories!
This enouraged me to think that the mission of the Hockey Star camp is not only
to organize hockey training, but also to provide help and support to all little
hockey players in need. And I decided to create a Hockey fraternity of mutual
Now people constantly appeal to me with a request to support a child, a team, a
hockey school, or an entire city even! Helping people in a difficult life situation or when faced with injustice has become an important and integral part of our activity. Many of the children we help have nothing to do with hockey. Recently we have helped a boy from the Rostov region whose whole family died in a car accident - dad, mom and elder brother, and he miraculously survived. The baby had to endure this ordeal and the only thing we could do to provide financial support.
It doesn’t matter at all, football or hockey, swimming or boxing, it is important
to rally everyone together when disaster strikes! The largest crowdfunding
platform BOOMSTARTER and everyone who cares about the future of our hockey and
our entire country will support us in this!
Where will the funds go
Directions of work of the Hockey Brotherhood of mutual assistance:
- Providing regular targeted assistance to children hockey players in a difficult life situation;
- Buying expensive professional sports equipment and inventory;

The construction of own training base in Sevastopol. This will allow us to conduct

tournaments for the Hockey Star Cup among children's teams at the national
Conducting viewing sessions with Russia's leading hockey agents. In the current situation of hockey development in Russia, mainly children of wealthy parents
can get into the KHL, while talented children from low-income families are left
behind! It's time to restore justice! Thanks to the Hockey Star, young athletes will have a real opportunity to get into the best hockey clubs in our country, and in the future, into the National Hockey League!
Mutually beneficial cooperation
One of the basic principles of our work is mutually beneficial cooperation and
support! We try to take part in the development of our partners, therefore we
guarantee the maximum coverage of the contribution of any organization to the
development of children's sports on our online resources, in the city media,
during sporting events.
Hockey today is one of the most relevant sports in the country. The Russian team takes worthy positions in competitions of the Russian and world level.
Joint interaction will create additional mechanisms in the Russian Federation that
promote the development, promotion and popularization of hockey among beginner
athletes and make it accessible to everyone.
We are sure that among our children today there are Kharlamovs, Ovechkins,
Malkins, Fetisovs and Tretyaks! They just need to be given a chance to become
themselves! Give the opportunity to write their names in the story!
Childhood is the foundation of our lives. When a child, we react to the world
differently. We believe in a fairy tale, believe in miracles, believe in the
kindness of the world around us, and what is inherent in us from childhood
remains with us forever. But childhood passes quickly and will never happen
again, so let's make it last as long as possible, so that there are fewer
disappointments, and more joyful moments, because, as Sergei Mikhalkov said: “A
person begins in childhood. It is in childhood that the sowing of good takes
place”and the task of each of us is to make as many of these seeds germinate
as possible! Only by joining together we can do many good deeds!
