Avon Pond hosts Challenger Winter Classic
Outdoor hockey between the Brick Stars and the USA Wounded Warriors was an inspirational Super Bowl pre-game at the Avon Pond
Avon Pond is an outdoor rink that is one of the Shore’s great hockey ambassadors. They sponsor our Game Puck every week to honor top high school hockey players and also provide jerseys for high school All-Star games around the area. Their top event comes every February when the Brick Stars Challenger program takes to the ice and plays the USA Wounded Warriors in an exhibition game. High school players from Point Pleasant Boro, Saint Rose, Brick Township and other schools work with the Brick Stars every Sunday morning. The Brick Stars were able to raise over $2000 for the Wounded Warrior fund, but more importantly it was a chance for the local hockey community to support two great sources of inspiration.
