The USSOCOM Warrior Care Program (Care Coalition) participates in two major adaptive sports events each year.  They are the DoD Warrior Games and the International Invictus Games.  Active duty participants are funded by USSOCOM while Veterans and families are funded by benevolent organizations.

Humans are more important than hardware - this is a SOF truth.  The people involved in the USSOCOM Warrior Care Program (Care Coalition) adaptive sports make this a unique activity that cannot be replicated anywhere else.  The coaching, camaraderie, and competition found here are unrivaled and YOU are a part of that equation.  The first step to getting involved in adaptive sports is to contact your Care Coalition Recovery Care Coordinator and express your intent to become part of the team.  Please see the table below for the USSOCOM Warrior Care Program Military Adaptive Sports Schedule of Events.

Warrior Sailing Program

Getting veterans on the water can provide physical, mental and emotional therapy for a variety of injuries and illness. Sailing is an outlet to cope with the long term effects of PTSD, brain injury, amputation, paralysis and nerve damage…plus it's a way for our warrior to express their most natural abilities: teamwork and competitive drive.

 

Basic Training Camp
The Warrior Sailing Program Basic Training Camp is focused on introducing the skill of sailing to wounded, ill and injured service members. In an intense 3-day camp, participants are taught how to manage a boat on the water. It's about teamwork, self-reliance and the fun-factor. The program highlights skills to manage a boat on the water as well as societal skills, which may translate to personal and job skill development. The program is open to wounded, ill or injured service members of the Armed Forces; active duty or retired.
