The Tampa Bay Warriors beginner team was lucky enough to be honored at the Lightning game last week against the New Jersey Devils. During an intermission, our Warriors had the opportunity to sit on the bench while the Lightning PR announcer explained what our program is about:

The Tampa Warriors Ice Hockey Program was founded in November 2017 as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose purpose is to utilize ice hockey programs as part of the rehabilitation of military personnel “wounded in the defense of the United States”.

Multiple members have experienced a positive life altering effect after joining the program which provides a healthy and welcoming environment for veterans to get out of the house and regain the camaraderie they once had. A community driven program that is more than just a hockey team, family members are welcomed and involved in the program. The Program’s mission is to organize and administer an ice hockey program that provides a recreational, therapeutic experience and education. Not only was this an amazing experience for our players, it also helped people learn a little about or program and how we help veterans in our community.
