Mission Statement

The USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, for United States Military personnel wounded in defense of the United States in conjunction with the USA Disabled Hockey Program. The Program's mission is to organize and administer an ice hockey program that provides a recreational, therapeutic experience and education to its participants. Some of the program's purposes include, but are not limited to:

1. Encouraging the formation of ‘USA Warrior Hockey Programs' locally and nationally;

2. To educate, train, motivate and encourage, individuals who have physical disabilities incurred during service to the United States, to participate in the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of ability of the participating athletes;

3. To integrate people with disabilities with people without disabilities in order to promote awareness of challenges and to encourage team building;

4. To use the game of hockey to assist individuals with disabilities in developing self-confidence, adjusting to their new lifestyle, rehabilitation, self-reliance, concentration, and to assist in helping participants back into mainstream lifestyles they were accustomed to prior to their disability, that will help the individual be more successful both within and outside a hockey environment;

5. To educate and encourage the general public about disability sports and the USA Warriors Ice Hockey Program in particular and to promote societal awareness of the sacrifices participants made in defense of our nation.
