Taylor Wenczkowski is no stranger to the New England area, growing up playing hockey in New Hampshire. Playing hockey isn’t the only way she’s investing in the Boston community. After realizing her passion for investing in the next generation of hockey players, TW Hockey Academy was born! 


When and where did you start playing hockey? 

Wenczkowski: I started playing hockey when I was five in Rochester, New Hampshire for the Rochester Blackhawks. 


You coach throughout the community; how did that start and what do you do? 

Wenczkowski: I’ve coached in the community for several years. I was working for other people and then in 2021 I decided to branch out and start my own company, TW Hockey Academy, and do camps, clinics, and private lessons. I figured while I was playing, this is the time to take the leap of faith and quit my job. I wanted to really risk it all and throw myself 100% into building a company to work with the next generation of girls and boys. We have a lot of the boys come to our games and it’s awesome to see them. It’s really cool obviously to see the girls, but to see the boys there cheering, being just as excited as the girls, is really special.  


What’s your favorite part about coaching? 

Wenczkowski: Being a role model and helping the next generation of kids. I look back on my career and I have a couple coaches that stand out to me. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for those coaches, so to be that for one kid, let alone hundreds, is really special. I take a lot of pride in that. 


What’s the most underrated spot in New England? 

Wenczkowski: I love Newburyport, Massachusetts. It’s really pretty on the water and it’s just a cute little town that you can kind of get lost in. 


Being from New England, rank your favorite games to attend: Patriots, Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox, Revolution? 

Wenczkowski: I’ve never been to a Patriots game! I love the Celtics, so I’d say the Celtics are number one. Bruins second, Revolution, Red Sox, and then Patriots since I’ve never been. If they want to give me tickets, I’d gladly go!
