It will combine almost all of the Olympic heritage sites and will become a year-round base for 36 sports. These are track and field athletics, cycling, triathlon, rowing sports, hockey, skiing and others.

Not only the participants of the Sirius programs, but also pupils of sports schools from all over the country and from abroad will be able to train at the facilities of the cluster. And these are tens of thousands of children from different regions.

It seems to me that this is a good initiative, we will prepare its regulations together with the Ministry of Sports of the Russian Federation, ”said Igor Levitin, aide to the President of Russia.
It will develop programs for children, students, amateur and professional sports, train a sports reserve, national teams and highly qualified coaching staff, scientific research in the field of sports and sports medicine.

We combine the Olympic infrastructure and the competencies of the foundation and its partners in order to build a systematic work on the training of national teams, specialized specialists, create conditions for mass physical education and sports on the federal territory, “said Elena Shmeleva, head of the Talent and Success Foundation.
The cluster is formed taking into account the foundation’s six years of experience in identifying and training young athletes.

The approaches to teaching children and practice are adopted by trainers from all constituent entities of Russia and regional centers working according to the Sirius model. To implement educational and research projects, the sports cluster uses the capabilities of the Sirius University of Science and Technology, the Russian State University of Physical Culture, Sports, Youth and Tourism, and the Russian International Olympic University.

The well-known Ice Cube curling center will be converted into a Martial Arts Center. A large-scale construction of the second stage is already being completed at the facility, where the Center for Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, organized in partnership with the Pirogov National Medical and Surgical Center, will be located.
