2014 U.S. Army Warrior Trials

More than 100 Army, Marine Corps and Air Force athletes will compete in archery, cycling, shooting, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field and wheelchair basketball tournaments during the 2014 Army Warrior Trials at West Point, June 15-19.

Hosted by the U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command (WTC), the trials determine which Army athletes will compete at the 2014 Warrior Games this fall in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Warrior Games, a unique partnership between the Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Program, is a sports competition for wounded, ill and injured service members and Veterans representing all branches of the military. After overcoming significant physical and behavioral injuries, these men and women demonstrate the resilience of today’s force and the importance of adaptive reconditioning in recovery and transition.

“I like seeing the camaraderie of athletes whenever we get into a group like this [Warrior Trials]. It doesn’t really matter where you came from, all that matters is that we’re all like-minded people. It’s important to know that you’re not alone in dealing with stuff.”
