The Brick Stars Challenger Hockey Program is a 501 (c)(3)  special needs ice hockey program that was founded by Brick Hockey Club’s ACE Director, Coach Alex DePalma in 2009 and the recipient  of Mark Messiers 2010/2011 Bridgestone Youth Leadership Award.  Coach Alex DePalma, along with a group of dedicated volunteers, without limitation, assist and support an ice hockey program for individuals with developmental disabilities, mental challenges or learning delays that prevent them from participating effectively in other sports organizations.  The ice hockey program is designed to meet the needs of the developmentally challenged athlete. We have been mentioned in the Asbury Park Press, on the Philadelphia Flyers website, featured in the Neighborhood Journal on Cablevision and were the benefactor of Jim Dowds’ Shoot For The Stars Foundation in 2010.  Our goal is to make this program affordable for all the developmentally challenged athletes, therefore providing these individuals with donated equipment and jerseys.   However, with the growth of this program,  the cost of additional equipment, such as helmets, shin pads, elbow pads and ice can get quite costly.    We continue to look for donations to help defray the operating costs of this program so that these individuals may continue to play the game of “special hockey”.   If interested in making a donation to the program, please fill out the attached form and forward your donation made payable to Brick Stars Challenger Hockey.  We look forward to another great season with the Brick Stars, and as always, we thank you in advance for your support for this wonderful program.   Should anyone require additional information or have any questions please email Director, Alex DePalma at or Dina Crepaldi, Team Manager at
