John Caputo started ice skating back in 1985 and hasn’t looked back since.
By day, he owns and manages Harcourts Integrity, the driving force behind this amazing series initiative. John has played hockey, ice and inline, at both state and national level, representing WA and NSW in junior tournaments between 1987 and 1994. 1991 saw John take his hockey playing abilities to the international stage, being selected for the Australia national youth team in overseas tournaments. In 1991 John was also selected as the Coca-Cola junior sport star of the year in WA. John played for the Macquarie Bears (now the AIHL’s Sydney Bears) in 1993, helping them to the NSW Super League Championship. Several more years at Super League level in Perth and a Super League MVP award gave John experience at the elite level before he got the call up in 2000 to represent Australia once again. This time it was for the Senior Men’s inline squad. The Australian team placed ninth in the world at the tournament which was held in the Czech Republic. In 2015 John was selected for the Perth Thunder AIHL squad, however had to withdraw due to a knee injury. John is very excited to be leading the Ultimate Ice Hockey Championship initiative in Perth. “It’s going to be “big” he says. When he’s not selling houses faster than the puck, John is out on the ice and can’t wait to see what this series will bring for the sport in WA.
