Please welcome our new coach Aaron Singletary!

Team--

We are extremely thankful to our park and rink administration for their support in securing a figure skating coach for our Thursday practice hours. Please welcome Arron Singletary. 

Aaron Singletary

Aaron Singletary grew up in Pennsylvania skating for Penguin Figure Skating Club and started his national competitive career training with Craig Maurizi. Over the years Singletary has had many internationally revered coaches and singling one or two would be a disservice to the others. Each left a prominent mark on his approach to skating. Aaron earned gold in moves-in-the field as well as freestyle singles. Aaron now coaches primarily in Newburgh, NY at Ice Time Sports Complex. His students include National medalists Jacob Sanchez and Olivia Alexander. He dreams to further his knowledge so that one day he too may be at internationally recognized performer and coach. The 2019 Home season marks his debut with Ice Theatre of New York.
