Sports Company: the continuation of the story

26
The Ministry of Defense reports that the recruitment of young people into sports companies will continue during the autumn draft for military service. In particular, with 14 in October 2013 of the year, a call to the sport quota of the Southern Military District, which is located in Rostov-on-Don, begins. It is expected that this military unit of the Ministry of Defense will be replenished by more than fifty young Russians (aged from 18 to 27 years).


Sports Company: the continuation of the story


The Rostov sport category itself was formed in the summer of 2013 of the year, and at this stage of the autumn draft, five people had already fallen into it. It should be noted that each of the five recruits has the title of master of sports, and two of them - the title of MC international class.

According to reports from the main military department, only winners or medalists of international tournaments will be able to become military recruits who will be sent to serve in the sports company of the Southern Military District. As an example of such tournaments leads the Universiade-2013, World and European Championships.

Another 94 recruit will join the sports company of the Central Military District. According to the data published by the military commissariats, the names of all recruits are known in the world of sports, and therefore there is no reason to “expect” any random people in sports companies. I would like to believe that the words of the military commissioners reflect objective reality.

Returning to the recruits mentioned by 94, it should be noted that all of them represent Olympic sports (both summer and winter): from bobsled and sailing to short track and canoeing. Of the 94 recruits of the nine ranks of international masters of sports, more than 60 people are masters of sports and CCM. Almost all - representatives of the Olympic reserve.

It should be noted that in addition to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Sport of the country is also responsible for the training of these fighters in a certain way. In particular, the sportswear and the necessary sports equipment will be allocated by the Office of Vitaly Mutko. In addition, the diet for fighters of sports companies will be different from the diet of ordinary soldiers of the Russian army. It is reported that the following approach to the food supply of these recruits will be welcomed: the rate and composition of dishes depending on the sport. That is why of the fighters formed offices, so to speak, on the sporting equipment of military personnel.

According to the plans of the main military department, the total number of sports companies in Russia (in the Northern capital, Rostov-on-Don and Samara) should be at the level of 400 people.

According to the adviser to the Minister of Defense Maria Kitaeva, special barracks are provided for soldiers of companies who have a lot of what is necessary for full-fledged sports training. According to representatives of the Ministry of Defense, the service of such fighters, meanwhile, will not be associated solely with the preparation for the next sporting events. All types of conventional military training are also provided: from drill to exercises with military equipment and small arms weapons.

In Russia, not all positively perceived the restoration of sports companies that were eliminated in 2008. At the same time, critics of the resumption of the appeal of young people to sports military units for the most part declare that a sports company will train and “let out” not soldiers and non-athletes, and even give a chance to avoid full-fledged service to a certain number of young people. 12-months of service for the full training of a fighter is not enough, and if he also devotes most of this time to his sports career, then nothing good will come of it. This position is held, in particular, by the former head of the public council under the main military department, Igor Korotchenko.

However, the opinion Korotchenko not all share. People who once served in sports companies (and in Soviet times, too) say that such service did not prevent them from developing their professional sports skills, as they did not interfere with and achieve significant results, as they say, in general army training. And there are plenty of examples. The service in the divers school of the Black Sea Fleet of the USSR, in which he achieved substantial success, did not prevent sailor Arkady Vorobyov from becoming a two-time Olympic champion and 5-multiple world weightlifting champion. Many servicemen of the USSR sports companies remained, as they used to say in Soviet times, to be over-urgent, and with time they became not only famous athletes, but also talented military personnel. A pupil of the same 134 sports company of the Black Sea Fleet, which last year celebrated its 50 anniversary, Valentin Kireev reached the rank of major in the military hierarchy, became a master of sports of the USSR and an honored coach of the USSR. Nikolai Vechirko, who became the senior midshipman for the years of his subsequent coaching activity, prepared 15 international-class masters of sports and about three hundred masters of sports of the USSR and Russia.

Vladislav Tretyak, the famous hockey player, spoke out about the benefits of sports companies even before the decision was made to restore them in the Russian army, who wondered why such companies were disbanded in the War Office under Anatolia Serdyukov. Vladislav said that many young athletes of a sufficiently high level have recently become tempted to play in sports for other countries in order not to serve in the Russian army. To prevent such temptations from appearing, the Tretyak considers it appropriate to restore the sports companies, recalling that he himself served in the sport company, and this only helped him to achieve high results.

It should be noted that sport military units are not only in our country. Analogs exist, for example, in Germany. Here is the following experience: the first three months of military service are designed to give athletes solely military training, then sports training becomes more. Today, every fourth German athlete is a member of the military, and about 20% of this number are servicemen of a private or non-commissioned officer who live in general military barracks.

The effectiveness of the current sports activities in Russia will depend on many factors: how well thought-out will be the plans for training fighter-athletes before the army itself is interested in such units. If the return of sports mouths is rather for show, then it is hardly worth talking about their effectiveness. If the service in a sports company will meet the goals and objectives of both the Ministry of Sport and the Ministry of Defense, then the results will not be long in coming. Well, if you continue to argue in the vein that a sports company is only a mechanism for the athlete to reward ’from real service, then we must not forget that in our country, judging by the number of so-called draft dodgers (more than 200 thousand people) not to go to the army enough ...

    There were sports companies in the USSR, and in Russia it is impossible without them. Let the guys do what they love. It will not be worse from this. Yes, and as in the troops without athletes.

      Again the circus. That is, there are special conditions for sports companies! : good facilities, sports equipment, improved food, good sleep, weekends, vacations, sports equipment, no work (sweeping the parade ground, painting fences), no outfits and guards, etc.

      And to simple saldophones all the "charms" and hardships of army life!

      No, I'm against sports mouths !!!

      This is again the division into the mob and the elite ...

      In each part, make a normal hall, a rocking chair, tales of bags, pears, lay a wrestling carpet, put a ring, buy soccer balls and equipment, and most importantly, give time for sports, not debelism in the form of folding snow into cubes and then the results in sports will be that sports companies are babble compared to the thunder in the evening sky !!!

      To realize all this a lot is not necessary, you just need to stop stealing !!! hi

        No need to pile everything up. Those who are seriously involved in sports, for them, this is the way out of the problem of how not to lose shape. They train from 5-6 years old and are charged for a certain result, a year of service and everything down the drain. And for the country, medals at various levels. Secondly, the service will learn how to handle weapons.

        Case in topic.

        In 1998 he was on duty at the checkpoint with one fighter from a rugby sports company (CSK VVS). The thoughts in his head were about the following: I’ll serve, I’ll gain experience for free, I’ll quit and “sell myself” for a big sum to some rugby team in Europe.

        That’s all patriotism ...

    I am of course for it, because I served as an urgent service in the so-called sports. protege. although in fact with SKA. and therefore some skeptics have a place to be. a usual practice-conscript is waiting for the oath, after which he is sent to some part, preferably far away in the taiga, away from checks. They put on the state, and more often "out of the state" and the athlete goes on a "business trip". Therefore, when in practice they call the name "Ivanov" and in response - On a business trip! Many ask each other with bewilderment, they say who it?
    at that time, the athlete went to training camps, studied, often lived at home .... but he did! now, if he lives in a unit, and even does combat training ... what international level should he talk about? Vladislav Alexandrovich recalled himself, and who else but he should know what happened after the death of Cherepanov and how they searched for athletes in the district ... it’s certainly good to live in a unit, but these athletes will perform at district competitions, well, armed with the country. But what international level to talk about? but if you take a hockey player, a cyclist, a skier

      legends !!! only a lot of them went combatant ??? like Ovechkin and Malkin. here incidentally, the plot is worthy of attention))

      The military commissar of the Chelyabinsk region, Alexander Bochkarev, proposed an option whereby the forward of Tractor Yevgeny Kuznetsov could be saved in Russia, as well as returning Evgeni Malkin from Pittsburgh and Valery Nichushkin from Dallas from across the ocean.

      - Evgeny Kuznetsov, I think you can continue to play for Tractor and defend the honor of the country while serving in the Russian army. You can also draft young people who have left Russia into the army. For example, Valery Nichushkin, Eugene Malkin.

      They do not have to play CSKA or SKA. Sports companies existed in the Soviet army and were abolished. But in 2012, Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu suggested reviving them, and Russian President and Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces Vladimir Putin signed a decree, ”Bochkarev said.

      Recall, drafted by “Washington” Kuznetsov plans to move to the NHL from next season

        To note
        Alexander Mikhailovich Ovechkin (17 September 1985, Moscow) - Russian professional hockey player, left striker of the NHL club “Washington Capitals”. Before Ovechkin played in the Super League for the Moscow Dynamo.

        He DOESN'T LIKE CSKA USSR not by age, not by subordination. Dynamo is to the Ministry of Internal Affairs

        Eugene Vladimir Malkin (July 31 of the 1986 of the year, Magnitogorsk, USSR) - Russian hockey player, center forward, player of the Russian national team. World Champion, participant in the 2006 and 2010 Olympic Games. Honored Master of Sports of Russia (2012) [1].
        Pupil of the hockey school of Magnitogorsk Metallurg. World Junior Champion 2004. Two-time silver medalist of the youth world championships. Silver and bronze medalist of the Russian championships in the Magnitogorsk Metallurg. Winner and best player of the 2012 World Hockey Championship.

        The same and this player has nothing to do with CSKA USSR ...

        So that

          this is to the fact that they did not go combatant fields in the MoD in the Ministry of Internal Affairs
          and by the way I think they would hardly be who they are today, if they were drill
          I know who played when
          but in general, if you're interested, you need to understand this issue more deeply. because you can not play either Dynamo or CSKA, but at the same time serve in a sports club. There can be no questions at all about Magnitogorsk

    Disgusting idea. Or serve or "sportsman".
    They will start with a sports company, and then a lot of "snowdrops" will appear, existing at the expense of combat units. And the commander, who has not seen his "subordinate" in the eyes, will be responsible for the incidents. "We swam, we know."
    Therefore, the sei units were disbanded, they became a gathering place for slobs and criminals. It is, of course, convenient to write down victories at the expense of army "physical education" and hang orders on yourself ...

    About the "disgusting idea".
    In the photo of the Black Sea Fleet sports company I saw my colleagues. The photo was taken after the kayak and canoe team returned from the championship of the USSR Armed Forces, where we took the first command place, I personally won gold. I am not in the photo - upon arrival I was waiting for an urgent call to my home unit (Marine Corps of the Black Sea Fleet, Sevastopol). Until the end of the service, I had to participate in a comprehensive check of the USSR Ministry of Defense (that year our unit was recognized as the best in the USSR), in the 101 Parade on Red Square (this is about drill training, then only the Airborne Forces and the Black Sea Fleet received "excellent"), in hostilities ( Port Said), personally earned the gratitude of the USSR Minister of Defense.
    So, only those who themselves belong to "snowdrops, slovens, blatate" can speak about sprtrots like that.

      I am a career officer and in my regiment there was a platoon of sports "mowers" nominally assigned to the unit. Therefore, I will repeat it for the slow-witted and proud - either serve as prescribed by the Charter or "change", but in different structures. Otherwise, it will be a real headache for those who are worn with this crazy idea. Especially when "titled athletes" from the mountains will tumble into the mouth. By the way, in St. Petersburg they detained the "shooters" who distinguished themselves when they were not allowed to enter the night tavern ... they are all athletes of a characteristic appearance and even world champions in martial arts.

      No, well, Port Said, of course it's cool. Fuck there my Afghanistan. We had few thanks either, mainly orders and medals (not gold at all), and even that, many, posthumously.
      I have the honor!

        And about Port Said - I did not ask there. Service is service. So it happened.

    In Russia, far from all positively perceived the restoration of sports companies, which were liquidated in 2008. At the same time, critics of the renewed recruitment of young people into sports military units for the most part state that the sports company will prepare and “release” both soldiers and non-athletes, and even provide an opportunity to evade a full number of young people from serving. 12 months of service for the full training of a fighter is not enough, and if he also devotes most of this time to his sports career, then nothing good will come of it. I categorically disagree! During the year of service in a sports company, I grew up as an athlete, participated, achieved my goal. But after the decline in results, nothing prevented me from going on a special mission and being realized as a warrior-defender of the Fatherland!

    I have never been to a sports company. But, being a "Master of Sports" (parachutism), he wrote a letter to the USSR Ministry of Defense with a request to call him into the ranks of the USSR Armed Forces. They called (at the age of 27, from the reserve) to the post of early. PDS air regiment. I had to perform in competitions, defending the sports prowess of the unit. As a member of the team, I took 3rd place in the Air Force championship in dome acrobatics. I clearly saw that the guys (crickets and warrant officers in positions in "tmutarakan") were stronger than us "combatants". But, among those to whom we lost 1st and 2nd places were real talents who became World Champions. Among them is one of my "protégés". I don’t know how to relate to this, but among those to whom we "missed" the 1st and 2nd places (listing their names for myself, because I know everyone hi ), there is no one to whom you can expose "presenting" in the hack. The guys worked for the result. And their bar was high: the honor of Russia. What I want to say: EVERYTHING depends on the inner core of people who have dedicated their lives to the sport of high achievements. For example, footballer Arshavin. Did he serve? Or take yes and compare this Tovarisch with Major Anatoly Firsov (hockey player of the USSR national team). The boundaries of decency for these two athletes are simply incommensurable. It seems to me (IMHO) that the ideological setting in the country gives rise to either those or others. I didn't want to offend anyone. Yours faithfully..

    Quote: Analogues exist, for example, in Germany. Here we have the following experience: the first three months of military service, the called-up athletes devote exclusively to military training, then there are more sports trainings. Today, every fourth German athlete is a military man, and about 20% of this number are military men of ordinary or sergeant composition, living in combined arms barracks.

    The Bundeswehr is being completed on a voluntary basis; the call was canceled in 2011. and I think that professional athletes do not serve there, they earn money by sports. Professional military men make money a little different, and go in for sports for fun and are called amateurs.
    Our Army is equipped with conscription, so those called up for service should receive a military specialty, according to the training program, and engage in sports in their spare time from service.
    The result of a sports company will be either a bad soldier and a good athlete or a bad athlete and a good soldier, as a rule.
    There is a solution: make changes to the law on deferment for members of the national team, and the number of collections in each form can be determined.
    Conclusion: a sports company is not needed for draftees.

    It's funny, really. Srach from scratch. For those who do not know: while the Ministry of Defense smashed sports companies under Serdyukov (CSKA, SKA, etc.), none of the similar structures in Dynamo suffered (the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the FSB, including the internal and border troops). There, even the question of closing the sports company did not arise. Another question. Comrades career officers, do you think it is possible to prepare a trained soldier in a modern army in 1 (one) year? No, grass can be taught to dye green. I stress: a trained soldier? The second question: comrade personnel coaches, how long does it take for an eighteen-year-old MSMK and a member of the national team, for example, in swimming or athletics, to fly out of the "cage" forever and never return there? I emphasize: this question is only for personnel coaches who know in their own skin what the situation in the national team is, and what is the level of competition there.
