About the DoD Warrior Games
The Department of Defense 2021 Warrior Games, hosted by the U.S. Army, will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort from Sept. 12-22.
The annual event, first held in 2010, celebrates the resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran U.S. military service members. Hundreds of athletes, including those from international allied nations, will participate in adaptive sporting events such as wheelchair basketball, cycling, indoor rowing, and wheelchair rugby during the games.
The DoD Warrior Games serve as a way to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded warriors by providing them exposure to adaptive sports. Participation in the Warrior Games represents the culmination of a service member’s involvement in an adaptive sports program and demonstrates the incredible potential of wounded warriors through competitive sports.
