Online registration for 2016 DOD Warrior Games now open

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Online registration is now open to participate in the 2016 Department of Defense Warrior Games at cvent.com. Volunteers, media and distinguished visitors -- as well as selected athletes, family members, non-medical attendants, staff and coaches -- must register online to participate.

The Army will host the DOD Warrior Games at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, from June 15-21.

The Warrior Games is an adaptive sports competition for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. Approximately 250 athletes will participate in eight sporting events, representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy/Coast Guard, Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command and United Kingdom Armed Forces.

The games highlight the resiliency and warrior spirit of service members, veterans and their families and caregivers. They represent the culmination of participation in structured adaptive sports and reconditioning activities of wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans through their recovery.

Spectators are invited to attend and support the athletes during the games, including opening and closing ceremonies, and registration is not required.
