Boris Amromin – The Israel National Ice Hockey Team’s Goalie, Coach and leader of ‘Hawks’ Haifa team; veteran of Ice Hockey of Israel Federation Management staff  provides the exclusive interview to’ Israhockey’ web-site


Boris Amromin was born on 1975 in Kharkov city in Ukraina

“ I started play hockey in age of 8 years old under the local hockey school in Kharkov city. My first coach was Mr.Yuri Tzerkovnyuk. I very liked to be a goalie when played hockey outside. It was very difficult for me to choose a favorite sport between soccer and hockey. My father was a soccer goalie when was young and played in junior soccer team “ Metalist”. My mother was an ice speed skater, so finally I mixed it and decided to be an Ice Hockey goalie.

My titles are:

Champion of ‘Dinamo’ tournament season 1989

Champion of Ukraine season  1989

Silver medalist under united ‘Dinamo ‘ team in season 1990

Silver medalist in USSR  championship under Kharkov Hockey school team in season 1991

Champion of Bulgaria under ‘Levsky’ team Sophia 2003

In Israel my hockey career is:

1991 – 1995 HC Haifa

1995 -2012 HC ‘Hawks’ Haifa

Champion of Irsael in seasons: 1992, 1993, 2006, 2007, 2008

From 1992 I’m Israel National Hockey Team goalie. Was announced as best player in the team in 1993 season World Championship.

My dream is to create a big Hockey Club in Haifa City which will include kids, junior and senior teams; to found a goalie school for kids and junior national teams

I’d like to invite more young people to play hockey and have opportunity to select good and best players.

From my point of view the main problem in hockey development in Israel is absence of ice and inline hockey rinks. Unfortunately hockey clubs cannot build its own hockey rink, so I think that the high priority issue for Israel Hockey Management and my is look in for investments to build new rinks in Haifa city and over the Israel.
