MARILYN P. KASPUTYS
The family of Marilyn Kasputys is honored to have her name associated with The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention at The Skating Club of Boston. The research, training, and therapy provided by the Center will lead to improved skater performance, reduce the likelihood of injuries, and provide diagnosis and treatment onsite when needed.
Marilyn started ice skating on a frozen puddle at age five and later found her skating “home” at The Skating Club of Boston, where she was a member for 37 years. She competed in ice dance, enjoyed creating free dance programs, and performed in Ice Chips. She co-chaired the Ice Dance Committee for 10 years, was instrumental in starting a competitive ice dance training program, and conceived and ran the Club’s Ice Dance Weekend that attracted skaters from all over the U.S. Sharing her love of skating with her family, she introduced her husband and four daughters to skating. Sometimes there were injuries, but she and her family were always patched up and restored to the ice by Dr. Lyle Micheli. She was liked by everyone for her warm smile and enthusiasm. Marilyn passed away in 2017 at the age of 80, and despite medical challenges, skated regularly nearly to the end of her life. The Skating Club of Boston and The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention make a truly unique combination that will improve the training of skaters at the Club and have a positive impact on the sport of ice skating everywhere.
