It is the best veteran’s organization that I have ever been a part of. The brother hood and comradery are outstanding. It is a place that I can go and feel at home. Even though I am Canadian they have accepted me with open arms and I am eternally grateful for that. I consider each person in this organization a brother/ sister. Being on this team has meant so much to me and my family, it is amazing being a part of this special group of people.”

2018 USA Disabled Hockey National Champions Warrior A Division
From the moment the players walk through the doors of the arena they are part of the team. Part of something more. They are able to step away from daily life and play a game. Being part of this team means knowing they can depend on each other. There is a level of camaraderie that goes without parallel in civilian life. The Warriors hope is to help each one another and other Veterans get through the rough times with the bond that is built on and off the ice.

The Minnesota Warriors Hockey Program’s mission is to organize and administer an ice hockey program that provides a recreational, therapeutic experience and education to its participants.
The MN Warriors Ice Hockey Program has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, for wounded, injured, or otherwise disabled veterans of the United States Military, in conjunction with the USA Disabled Hockey Program.
The program educates, trains, motivates, and encourages 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. It is designed to integrate people with disabilities with people without disabilities in order to promote awareness of challenges and to encourage team building.
The program uses 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.
