The 2019 Department of Defense Warrior Games will be taking place throughout the Tampa Bay community this June. The Warrior Games are competitions designed to demonstrate the incredible potential of wounded, ill and injured service members (active duty and veteran). The adaptive sports competitions encourage wounded warriors to build strength and endurance while drawing inspiration from their teammates. The Paralympic-style competitions were established in 2010 to enhance recovery and rehabilitation, and promote opportunities for individual growth and achievement.
US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is hosting the annual Games and will feature 15 sporting events with more than 300 athletes representing the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and U.S. Special Operations Command, as well as International representatives from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Denmark and Netherlands. The events will be held at venues throughout the community including Amalie Arena, Tampa Convention Center, USF and Yuengling Center and even along Bayshore Blvd.
