On May 24-30, 2018, the Albany Capitals, a team of 10-12-year-old hockey players, will embark on an epic journey across the pond to represent the United States at the EuroChem Cup in Novomoskovsk, Tula, Russia. This is the first time a U.S. team has participated in the tournaments' eight-year history. A great honor and experience for the kids, the team and families of the Capital District and Central New York area.

The EuroChem Cup is one of the largest children’s hockey tournaments in Europe and teams from eight different nations will compete. For each country participating in the tournament, middle schools in Novomoskovsk will be assigned a country. The students then learn about the country (and city), paint themselves in its colors and become their fans for the duration of the tournament. Hailing from the United States, the Capitals will, of course, wear red, white and blue.
