The Marilyn P. Kasputys Branch of The Micheli Center
for Sports Injury Prevention
The Marilyn P. Kasputys Branch of The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention is a new location at The Skating Club of Boston’s new training facility in Norwood, for The Micheli Center’s ground-breaking approach to injury prevention in athletes of every age. Founded by world-renowned sports orthopedic specialist and the Director of Sports Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, Dr. Lyle Micheli, the center applies decades of research, data and experience across a wide variety of sports to help today’s athletes avoid injuries in the first place. In addition to providing prescriptive evaluations and practical strength-and-conditioning plans to help prevent injuries, the center’s trainers also offer group and private instruction in over 4,000 square feet of space to train Club skaters with all of their off-ice strength and conditioning requirements. In addition, the center’s space includes examination and treatment rooms, offices for sports psychology and nutrition, on-site physical therapy, and an x-ray imaging room for any immediate examination requirements.
The center also includes a 1,600-square foot dedicated dance space with a sprung floor, ballet bars and mirrors for a variety of off-ice dance, choreography and jump classes. Also within the center, the Club operates a high-altitude training room – the only such training room in the area – and the Club’s jump spinner.

Marilyn P. Kasputys
With a generous donation by longtime Club member, Dr. Joseph Kasputys, the Center’s new Club location has been named after Dr. Kasputy’s late wife, Marilyn P. Kasputys. Dr. and Marilyn Kasputys were longtime participants and fans of the sport, and skated together in pairs and dance at locations around the world. Their passion and dedication for figure skating was limitless, and will continue for years to come through the establishment of this new sports injury and strength training center at the Club.
