NEW YORK, NY (June 29, 2024) – PWHL New York today announced that Josh Sciba has been hired as an assistant coach.

A native of Westland, MI, Sciba also serves as an assistant coach of the U.S. Women’s National Team and most recently helped earn a silver medal at the 2024 IIHF Women’s World Championship in Utica, NY.

I’m looking forward to building great relationships with our players, our staff and our organization as we strive to win a Walter Cup Championship together. I can’t wait to get started!”
