Athlete Journey

In Warrior Transition Units (WTUs), medical professionals and Adaptive Reconditioning Coordinators work with recovering Soldiers to include adaptive activities and sports as part of their individualized Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP). Those Soldiers can then choose to begin the path to Army Trials by participating in unit level competitions and then Army Regional Trials. After advancing from Regional Trials, athletes head to Army Trials where they work with expert coaches, sports trainers, and nutritionists to prepare for the competitions. This rigorous adaptive reconditioning training enhances the recovery of individual Soldiers, regardless of whether they ultimately qualify for the DoD Warrior Games.

Athletes possessing professionalism, team spirit and the best qualifying times and/or scores are selected to compete on Team Army in the DoD Warrior Games.
