Who We Are
The Chicago Blackhawks Warrior ice hockey program was founded in 2015 in conjunction with USA Disabled hockey to give our injured military members and veterans an opportunity to play hockey in an environment that suited their needs. The program trains them in the skills needed to use hockey as a rehabilitation tool to overcome physical and mental disabilities sustained in their service to our nation.
The Chicago Blackhawks Warrior program offers our returning military men and women a structured environment to practice and compete in the game of ice hockey while reintegrating into civilian life.
We are an Adult level team that relies solely on fundraising and charitable donations to support our program throughout the season. Our season runs from September through April and concludes at the USA Hockey Disabled Festival which is held in a different city each year. At the festival we will compete against other Warrior teams from around the country for National Titles in the Warrior A and B Divisions.
