So I looked up the Ice Hockey Federation of Russia website and the regional organizations websites as well - as expected, you have some regional leagues divided by year of birth (for example - "Championship of Moscow between players born in 1994") and I presume once players reach 18 years of age and are not good enough for KHL,MHL or VHL, they go play in some lower tier senior hockey league.
All these "League of region X for players born in year Z" leagues are part of the Sport school system, see this:
