CBDG investments in cutting-edge professionals
With Seidl, Brazil gains another foreign coach at Arena Ice Brasil. Today, in addition to him, the Confederation has Canadian Erik Olsen, responsible for hockey.
After a forced shutdown due to the pandemic, CBDG has resumed regular activities at Arena Ice Brasil this season. At the beginning of the year, there was great action aimed at the Winter Olympics. In addition, important ice sports athletes, such as Nicole Silveira and Edson Bindilatti, who retired this year, have passed through the Arena.
In addition, the Confederation has organized sports skating competitions and recently organized a selection for the Brazilian ice hockey team.
