The Tampa Warriors Hockey Program, Inc ("TWHP") was formed on November 29, 2017, and formally incorporated on January 1, 2020.
The TWHP, a 501(c)(3), has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, for those wounded in defense of the United States and America's First Responders.
The purpose of the TWHP is to serve the disabled veteran community, the hockey community at large, and the community at large in the Tampa, FL region.
Our mission is to provide both a recreational and competitive environment/team that is therapeutic and educational for our members so that we serve each other and our communities.
i. Compassion - for each other, our disabilities, our experiences, our personal struggles, and for improving those around us.
ii. Community - to serve, assist and contribute to the larger disabled veteran community, the hockey community, and the Tampa region.
iii. Camaraderie - to build a culture of family that serves our mission. To help find the purpose and direction that was once felt in service.
iv. Competition - The drive to win: in games, in self-improvement, and community improvement.
v. Healthy Living - To care for our physical, mental, or emotional wellness.
The program educates, trains, motivates, and encourages those who have physical disabilities incurred during service to the United States to participate in the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of their ability.
The TWHP, Inc. is staffed by volunteers, on-ice and off-ice mentors, and directors who do not receive any compensation, stipend, or other remuneration for their time.
