The Capital Beltway Warriors Ice Hockey is a Virginia based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our club was founded in 2017 and incorporated in 2018, was organized to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes for military members who proudly served or were wounded in defense of the United States. Our Staff are comprised completely of volunteers who are trained and certified by USA Hockey to instruct players in Adult and Disabled Ice Hockey.
We are a Virginia based nonprofit that provides opportunities for Veterans and Disabled Veterans in the National Capital Region (Northern VA, Southern MD, and Washington D.C.) to learn and play the sport of ice hockey. Our Staff is trained and certified by our governing body, USA Hockey, to provide a great on ice experience for Disabled Veterans. We rotate our sessions throughout the region and we participate in National Tournaments. We do our best to raise enough funds to mitigate the expenses to the Veteran, but sometimes we ask that you chip in. We aim to grow and raise enough donations that no Veteran will have to pay out of pocket to participate
We play two major "Warrior Hockey" (Disabled Veterans only) Tournaments per year: The USA Hockey Disabled Festival and the USA Hockey Warrior Classic. Both Tournaments change location from year to year and are our priority for funding. These two particular tournaments are for our Disabled Veterans who play in the USA Hockey Disabled "Standing Warrior" Division.
We play additional tournaments where our Veteran players can also participate along side our Disabled Veterans. These tournaments vary on location every year and sometimes incur a cost for lodging and travel.
We work very hard to raise funds to mitigate the cost of events for our members, however, priority of our funding goes to our Disabled Veteran Program. When we are short on funds we will ask for members to chip in if they want to participate in particular events. As we grow, we hope to mitigate all expenses to the Veterans and Disabled Veterans in this program.
We have everyone from former Professional Players to Beginners. We welcome all Veterans. If you have never played the sport of Ice Hockey, we will help you get started. We are here to get ALL Veterans on the ice.
At this time, we do our best to partially provide equipment for our members. We hope to be able to do so in the future when funding is abundant, be we are not there as an organization yet. We can direct you to places where you can find gear at discounted prices.
When our budget is fully funded, we provide the following:
