The Minnesota Warriors


The MN Warriors Ice Hockey Program has been organized for charitable and educational purposes, for United States Military personnel wounded, injured or otherwise disabled veterans of the United States Military, in order to assist our veterans with reintegration into civilian life.  

Vision: The program educates, trains, motivates and encourages individuals who have physical or mental 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 the ability of the participating athlete, as well as assist veterans with disabilities and to promote awareness of challenges our veterans face and to encourage team building.

The program uses the game of hockey to build camaraderie and a sense of community, as well as a connection to the community that supports them. In addition it assists veterans with disabilities in developing self-confidence, and to assist in helping participants back into mainstream lifestyles they were accustomed to prior to their disabilities, that will help the individual be more successful both within and outside a hockey environment.
