ZAPA beton has agreed to support the Rytíri Kladnohockey club for another year, in a collaboration between concrete and ice hockey that has lasted for over 16 years. ZAPA beton gave support in the partial rebuild of the Kladno stadium, which made the ice rink more comfortable for both players and spectators.
Rytíri Kladno is one of the most well-known sports clubs in the Czech Republic, boasting six national championship titles and a European Champions Hockey League win. The club’s youth squad also achieves excellent results, and many of Kladno’s graduates go on to play in the North American National Hockey League (NHL) and other prestigious world leagues such as the Russian KHL or the Swedish Elitserien.
With help from its partners, including ZAPA, the club fields about 20 teams comprising a total of almost 500 players, offering them proper facilities and professional coaches. The ice skating school now has many more children than in the past, and perhaps hockey may become a profession for some of them. For now though, they are enjoying themselves and receiving important training in aspects such as discipline, respect and helping others.
ZAPA is proud to collaborate with Rytíri Kladno, a club that is focused on training youngsters and helping meet the needs of the community.
