Black Bear Sports Group makes staffing adjustments to better serve all customers

Effective immediately, Tim Fingerhut has been hired to serve as the Director of Hockey for the Jaguars Youth Hockey Club and the Igloo at Mt. Laurel Ice rink.  In his role, Tim will oversee all aspects of the Jaguars Ice Hockey Club.

Tim was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins and went on the play for the University of Vermont. He continued his career in the CoHL, AHL, IHL, and the ECHL before moving into coaching for St. Augustine Prep for more than 10 years.  Coach Fingerhut has been involved in youth and high school hockey since 1999 and a part of the Jags program for more than 12 years.

In addition to this new hire, Black Bear Sports Group has also reassigned Larry Marval into new roles at both the Igloo and the newly acquired Pennsauken Skate Zone.

Larry Marval has been named Developmental Coordinator for the Igloo where he will oversee all aspects of the Learn to Play & In-House Hockey programs while also serving as the Assistant Director for the Learn to Skate program.

Larry will also serve as Skating Director for the Pennsauken Skate Zone.  In this new role, Larry will oversee all aspects of the Pennsauken Learn-to-Skate lesson programs, focusing on both acquisitions of new skaters and retention of existing skaters into next-step skating programs and freestyle skating sessions. 

Larry will work on behalf of both locations to develop partnerships with local schools, youth, and community organizations to attract new skaters while also developing a Summer Camp program to help existing skaters improve their skills.

Coach Larry has been with Igloo at Mt. Laurel Ice rink officially since 2012 but has been training figure skaters at the Igloo since 2002.  Larry’s background is in Figure Skating and includes many regional competitions as well as those in Toronto, Canada, and Lake Placid, New York.

Please join us in congratulating both Tim & Larry on their new posts. We are excited that these changes will create more opportunities to develop hockey players and skaters for years to come!
