Youth Hockey In China

from the China Daily,

“Our goal is to find a ‘Yao Ming’ for China’s ice hockey team,” said Angela Ruggiero, director of Project Hope, initiated by Charles B. Wang, owner of National Hockey League (NHL) team New York Islanders.
The project was launched in August last year, and over the next five years it will aim to establish a China Ice Hockey Training Centre, three Women’s Ice Hockey Training Bases, 30 primary and 10 middle schools under Ice Hockey Project Hope.
So far, the project has involved eight schools in Harbin, Qiqihar and Jiamusi, three major cities in northeast China’s Herlongjiang province.
