We really appreciate the skill, enthusiasm and hard work that our coaches bring to Saratoga Winter Club!
Paul Marchese has been coaching Saratoga Winter Club skaters since 2002 after working with local skaters and coaching development camps in
Lake placid since 1994.
Olympic skaters from many countries have won 84 medals (so far!) skating on Paul Marchese's skates.
As John Dimon say, "Paul can win any race on ice or inlines in his age class. A superb technician, he backs his skating talent up with power and speed."
Amy Peterson Peck
Amy is a 5-time Olympian with 3 Olympic medals.
She represented the USA as the flag bearer at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.
Pat Maxwell is a national and North American champion skater.
But far surpassing his record as a competitor, is his enviable record as a short track coach. Pat has coached the Saratoga Winter Club since 1976 and is noted for his innovative approach to teaching and development. He began informally coaching the Saratoga Winter Club skaters in 1976 and since then has helped many achieve national and international success.
The Saratoga Winter Club is fortunate to have several other coaches regularly working with our skaters in addition to our 3 main coaches. We are proud to have skilled and appropriate coaching for all skill and age levels.
