Team Canada – Warrior Games 2019
Team Canada will compete in the 2019 U.S. Department of Defense Warrior Games, held this year in Tampa, Florida June 21-30.
Team Canada will be represented by 36 competitors: serving Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans, all with an illness or a physical/mental health injury acquired while serving Canada.
Athletes will compete in 13 sports: archery, cycling, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, track, field, wheelchair basketball, indoor rowing, powerlifting, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair tennis, and golf.
Established in 2010, the U.S. Department of Defense Warrior Games are held annually in the United States with the goal of enhancing the recovery of ill and injured armed service members and veterans through sport.
The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) will host this year’s event, in which approximately 300 ill, injured, and wounded servicemen and women from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Denmark, and the Netherlands will compete.
Participation of Team Canada in the 2019 Warrior Games is made possible through the Soldier On program, part of the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group. Since its inception in 2007, Soldier On has supported nearly 5,000 members and, thanks to the generosity of Canadians, has disbursed more than $6 million directly to ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces serving members and veterans across the country in support of their recovery.
