The future of sport on the wreckage of the Soviet past: the training center "Vostok" rebuilt at the site of an abandoned pioneer camp in 90 in just a couple of years. On the outskirts of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk appeared basketball and ice arenas, a training field, a hostel for staff, a swimming pool and a sauna. Residential buildings and the building of the dining room, once inherited by a bonus to the land plot, were not demolished by the resident of the TOR “Mountain Air” LLC “Olimp”. The buildings were modernized in accordance with sanitary-epidemiological norms and opened 130 modern hotel-type rooms for 280 people. By area, the sports complex took 10 000 square. m, four buildings - 6400 square. m, dining room - 2000 square. m, secondary school - 2500 square. m. Communications fully updated.

“There was not enough electricity at the facility, we entered into an agreement with a local company, added one power line, conducted transmission lines, built our own boiler room,” says Pavel Pashov, deputy general director of Olympus LLC - The territory has its own water intake with wells, there is excellent water, which has passed all the checks. In parallel with the reconstruction and repair of existing buildings, a sports complex was erected. Now it is completed, the territory is fenced, landscaping is carried out. Already make out the property. And by the autumn of 2019, we plan to complete the construction of a comprehensive school.

The sports complex is built entirely on the funds of private investors - fishing companies of Sakhalin: PRK, KUK, Moneron, Aquamarine, Sevrybflot, STK and Pristan, united in the Regional Charity Foundation Native Islands. They invested in the project more than 2,5 billion rubles, of which 255 million rubles - in 2018 year, another 1,83 billion rubles - in 2017-m.
In "Olympus" they say: of the preferences of TOR, the most demanded were benefits for payments to social funds.

- We employ more 100 people, and we provide higher than average salaries in the region. While the test period, the staff at the facility, we use the minimum. When the complex enters a year-round regime, it will take up to 130 – 150 people: engineers, maids, administrators, cooks, stokers will be invited from among local residents. But we will have to attract sports coaches, teachers and teachers to school from the side - there are personnel shortages with these professions in the field, ”says the deputy head of Olimp LLC.

According to Pavel Pashov, the company is greatly helped by a reduced property tax:
- We have large facilities, and investments in them are considerable, and, accordingly, tax and property allowances give us a certain amount of freedom and economy for the whole 10 years. It is precisely this benefit that gives us the status of a resident of the Torah under the investment agreement with the Corporation for the Development of the Far East.

TOR "Mountain Air" is gradually becoming a sports area, which attracts the ski complex with the same name and other activities.

- “Olympus” has set itself the task of not just inviting children in the section where they will work out for a while and leave, but create a new format of active recreation on Sakhalin. We are for mass game and Olympic sports. For the inhabitants of the island, for example, hockey is a cult. In the modern world, it has ceased to depend on weather conditions, everything takes place in covered spaces. And it so happened that hockey is very popular among young Sakhalin. We have a lot of children's teams, in February, hockey competitions are held as part of the First Winter International Sports Games “Children of Asia”. The ice arena, for example, we provided for training, and it is already available all year round.

Among other things, the Vostok training center is a sponsor of the professional basketball club Vostok-65, serving in the Russian Super League (outside the island the team is called Sakhalin).

The first private boarding school on the island will operate in board and half board mode. Children will study and train, being at school from morning till evening or from Monday to Friday - as parents will choose. Future stars of football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, hockey, figure skating and martial arts will be raised here.

- Each child will be able to develop as an athlete and reach professional heights, without going to major metropolitan centers, as was required before. Having embarked on the path of sporting achievements in the territory of our center, where there is modern equipment, having received education and experience, he will be able to get a temper, form and act as part of professional teams, playing for his own. And parents and Sakhalin residents support their countrymen, and not a team with invited players, concludes Pavel Pashov.
