On October 30th, Alex DePalma, District Representative for Disabled Hockey, together with Mike Lichtenberger, our coach in chief, conducted a Disabled CEP Level 1 for the newest sled hockey program in Allentown, PA.
Jennifer Keeble, executive director of the Phantoms Charities organized their sled program with several athletes and volunteer coaches. Keeble acknowledges that they are just starting their program but says “they truly mean it when they say hockey is for everyone! All the resources provided by USA Hockey and their volunteers is remarkable!”

Alex DePalma, recently appointed by our national office, is planning and directing Special and Disabled Hockey throughout the Atlantic District. Alex is looking to grow the game for athletes with physical disabilities, developmental delays and sensory impairments.
