Wounded Warrior Programs

boot-camp2

Serving the military veteran population since 2006, STRIDE’s Wounded Warrior Program provides integrated adaptive sports and recreation activities to men and women of the armed forces who have been injured in combat. STRIDE utilizes skilled volunteer sport instructors and offers programs in snow sports, marksmanship, sled hockey, watersports, cycling and camping (at SCORE). This program serves Wounded Warriors and their families from the region and beyond.

With a focus on individual lifetime sports, our programs use specialized equipment and teaching techniques to “level the playing field.” STRIDE is a partner member of Disabled Sports USA Warfighter Sports and a US Paralympic Sport Club. Unlike other military and large national organizations, STRIDE Warrior programs provide direct service to active duty or veterans through the use of a mentorship philosophy. These mentors are paired with youth with similar disabilities as an integral part of the rehabilitative process: redeveloping their service ethos for community integration. In partnership with various Veteran’s Administration, Fort Drum and Transition Units, and numerous regional American Legions and Veterans of Foreign Wars organizations, STRIDE provides opportunities to restore shattered lives of recently injured soldiers and Marines returning home from battle.
