Warrior Games 2019

The 2019 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games will be held June 21 – 30 in Tampa, Florida. Approximately 300 seriously wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans will participate in the competition. The wounded warrior athletes will represent the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command, Armed Forces of the Netherlands, Australian Defence Force, Canadian Armed Forces, Danish Defence, and the United Kingdom Armed Forces.

Teams consist of active-duty service members and veterans with upper-body, lower-body, and spinal cord injuries; traumatic brain injuries; visual impairment; serious illnesses; and post-traumatic stress engaging in friendly competition and experiencing the healing power of sports. They will go head-to-head in archery, cycling, sitting volleyball, shooting, swimming, wheelchair basketball, track and field, and new this year, powerlifting and indoor rowing.

The Warrior Games were established in 2010 as a way to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded warriors and to expose them to adaptive sports. 2019 marks the tenth year of the competition.

This is the fifth time the DoD will lead the operational planning and coordination of the event; the U.S. Special Operations Command is the lead for this year’s event.

Athlete Journey

Each wounded, ill and injured Soldier has their own unique story and journey to recovery. By competing in the 2019 Department of Defense Warrior Games as part of Team Army, these brave men and women continue to prove their strength and resiliency. The Games are an opportunity for athletes to showcase their competitive edge, develop lasting relationships and heal, both physically and mentally.

Team Army’s Soldiers started out competing in unit level competitions for a chance to move on and participate at their regional trials. Top regional trials’ competitors were invited to compete at the Warrior Games, where they worked with expert coaches, sports trainers and nutritionists and competed for a chance to represent Team Army at the DoD Warrior Games. 40 athletes were selected to Team Army based on their professionalism, team spirit and event performances and will go on to compete at the 2018 DoD Warrior Games in Tampa from June 21 - June 30.
