The Westchester Skating Academy is pleased to announce Marco Spisso as new Hockey Director. Marco’s vast experience as a teacher, Prep school coach and manager of youth hockey operations of the Florida Panthers (NHL) Ice Den and the Florida Jr. Panthers youth hockey club. Marco is originally from Highland Falls, NY and has been with the Florida Panthers organization since 2016. Marco's motto is to "never be a player's last coach," meaning that he strives to develop each player on an individual level and then bring individuals together to create a functioning unit, all while promoting the "love of the game" and remembering that hockey should always be enjoyable. He is a successful Head Coach with a broad ice hockey background, including competing at the college and semi-professional level, as well as coaching a wide-range of individuals from complete beginners (children and adults) to professional-level athletes. Marco will start in his new role on July 1, 2019. Please join us in welcoming Marco to the WSA team.
The Westchester Skating Academy would also like to thank Jimmy Pellegrino for his 10 years of service. Jimmy has done a fantastic job both on and off the ice for many years and Marco will have some big shoes to fill. Jimmy and his family have been a huge part of the facility for many years and they will be missed. Jimmy will continue in his current role until August 23, 2019 and will be working with Marco in the transition. We also want to take this opportunity to wish Jim, Gina, Caiden and Rylin much happiness and success in their next chapter.
