Paralympic Sports for Veterans

Veterans and Ill/Injured Active Duty Service MembersVeterans With Disabilities

Challenge Alaska's Paralympic Sport Club Program provides occasional programming that is specifically for Veterans with disabilities, Active Duty Service members with injuries, and their families. 

Vets are welcome at any and all of our programs, but these are just for you.

Our goal in offering sports and activities to Veterans and Active Duty Service Members and their family ONLY is to better support them through social recreation, adaptive sports & outdoor recreation. By creating a safe environment that provides challenge by choice, the inherent therapeutic value that is a natural part of recreation can provide healing and strengthen relationships. It is our goal to create a judgement free environment that welcomes all ill and injured service personnel - especially those with invisible injuries.

About the Sport

Warrior Hockey is dedicated to US Military Veterans who have served our country and are injured or disabled. As one of USA Hockey's Disabled Hockey Section's newest disciplines, the Warrior Hockey Discipline is growing across the country and we are excited to see it grow here in Alaska. This program is open to any Veteran of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard) who have at least a 10% disability rating regardless of if you have played hockey before.

Eligibility Requirements

The team skates weekly at the Harry J. McDonald Memorial Ice Arena in Eagle River. No skating or hockey experience is needed to be part of the team. We can help you learn the skills, get the equipment and have fun. The most important role this team plays is to provide a community of Veterans to support each other on and off the ice. Come check us out or give us a call. Our calendar of practices can be found here
