The Director of DYUSSH “Sokol” and the future of the club Konstantin Simchuk in talked about creating a team based on the school as well as the first plans.
“Let’s start with the fact that this is not the legendary “Falcon” that everyone is waiting. But the appearance of the team was not a spontaneous decision. Conversations with the Department we have been around for a long time, and we have repeatedly appealed to the KCSA to the city took over the funding of the team.
But it has difficulties, because in Kiev there is not a single sport and, of course, each of them vying for funding from the city. Especially in connection with the latest events in the world this generally is deposited.
At the moment, conditions we do not put. The challenge now is to educate our own youth – not only of our school. Adult teams they and is designed for over-age players, foreign players.
During the season we will see and perhaps we, too, will need to be strengthened by more experienced players that would young children watched, studied and longed for a more professional level.
Of course, we don’t want to prevent old mistakes of other clubs. The main problem of the Kiev hockey is that there is always cheated players. I emphasize – always. Even in the old days when our Sokol played in the Premier League, could pay wages, but not to pay premium, or not pay back the money for the surgery in trauma. Personally, I was lied to more than once.
Therefore, our task is to prevent repetition of such situations. Again, our goal is to raise a battle the young squad, strengthened by experienced players and finish the season on a positive note, completely cover it financially,” he said Simchuk.
