The Department of Defense (DoD) holds an annual adaptive-sports competition. The competition highlights the exceptional physical skills and mental toughness of wounded, ill, and injured active-duty and veteran servicemembers. Next year will be the competition’s 11th year.

The 2020 games were supposed to be held in San Antonio but were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. Army will host the 2021 DoD Warrior Games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, in September 2021. Specific dates and details will be released closer to the event.

Humans Are More Important Than Hardware This Is a SOF Truth.  

In the games, men and women from the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, Army, and U.S. Special Operations Command are joined by representatives from allied nations. 

The featured adaptive sports include, but aren’t limited to, archery, cycling, sitting volleyball, swimming, track, field, wheelchair basketball, indoor rowing, powerlifting, golf, and wheelchair rugby.

I participated in the camps a few years ago and was in awe at the staff’s professionalism and the quality of the venues. The coaches for team SOCOM were truly incredible and an inspiration to us all.
