TEAM PITTSBURGH PERSONNEL CHANGES REFLECT ORGANIZATION GROWTH

Pittsburgh—Marmaduke Park has been bursting at the seams with hockey players since its city park transformation a decade ago, which is about how long President Mike Albright has served to grow the trending youth organization.

Early 2018, Albright, who also coaches the TEAM USA U18 USA World Ball Hockey Association team, is enjoying Team Pitt’s infiltration in other states and now other countries, and is stepping back from the president role to coach his grandson as well.  Perhaps a redo will be in order.

In the meantime, Long-time In-house Director, Eric Czapko of Ross will serve as Albright’s successor. Czapko has two children currently playing in-house and travel dek hockey for Team Pitt and has grown the in-house portion of Team Pitt by leaps and bounds since his influence in 2010.

Team Pittsburgh also said goodbye to Travel Coordinator Jackie Bowman who stepped down last fall with city worker Justin Salinetro seamlessly stepping into her role of coordinating out-of-state hockey tournaments. Finally, three-year Team Pitt supporter in ways including refereeing, coaching and advocating is Eric Pazkowski of Alison Park, who will fill the shoes of Czapko as In-house Director.

President Czapko will be joined by Vice President Jeff Johnstone, Secretary Jenn Stutz, and newly appointed treasurer Frank Magliocco, who offers years of accounting ability to fill the financial needs of Team Pitt.  Salinetro, Pazkowski, Dave Magliocco, who serves as head of referees, and Rachael Rennebeck, Marketing Director, to complete the Team Pitt executive board 2018.
