Hockey is a passion of mine (and my son). As a spectator since childhood, I’ve shared New York Ranger season tickets at Madison Square Garden since 1979. I’ve coached roller hockey and ice hockey in one form or another since 1999. Our Lynbrook Roller Hockey Tornadoes won numerous local championship while building the character of the youngsters playing the game. As Assistant Coach with the Lynbrook Ice Hockey Club, our JV team won its division championship in the Nassau County High School Ice Hockey League in 2008. I was a participant in a number of USA Hockey Coaching Education Programs and have been certified as a Level 4 (High School Level) Ice Hockey Coach. My son, a highly talented player on both blade and skates is presently a scholarship student at St. Johns University where he is seeking a degree in Sports Management. Hockey has been very good to us.
