HOME OF THE NEBRASKA WARRIORS


The mission of the Nebraska Warriors is to support the health and wellbeing of veterans of the United States Armed forces.  How we do that is a little different than medical systems that are currently in place.  We take the stereotypical veteran and align them with like-minded veterans, then turn them loose playing sports!

Our team-centric approach to support allows the healing to take place behind the scenes.  Veterans receive social interaction, physical exertion, and stimulate their competitive nature within our program.  Not to mention, it has been (and will continue to be) our priority to provide this service to veterans at little to no cost to the individuals!

We invite you to look around our website.  Explore the different sports that we offer under our SPORTS tab at the top of the page.  Want to know more about our leadership and our organization, go to the ABOUT US tab.  If interested in joining our ever-growing program, head to the REGISTRATION page and fill out the membership application.  This costs nothing and commits you to nothing.  Also, check out our SPONSORS tab to see the wonderful groups that have decided to support us.  You will also find links there to support us with a donation if you are so inclined.

If you are a civilian and are passionate about helping veterans, you are absolutely welcome to join as well.  We are always looking for volunteers to help guide the support and expand into new sports!



Nebraska Warriors Mission

The Nebraska Warriors Hockey Program's mission is to support the health and wellbeing of veterans of the United States Armed Forces using a social atmosphere.  The social atmosphere is created using team sports that mimic the service connections of small units, squad, flights, and so on.  The camaraderie that forms in this type of setting lasts for years.  

Our goal that will remain our primary focus to reduce/eliminate the dreaded 22 a day statistic that is the veteran suicide rate.  Our sports programs, as well as our collaboration with other veteran organizations (Irreverant Warriors, Mission 22, and Discfunction Veterans), and our family events will help to unite the community, giving members more resources to turn to, instead of making the permanent decision of suicide.

It is our hope to continue to grow across the state and bring in additional sports to the organization.  As of March of 2020, we currently offer Ice Hockey and Parachuting, however, we are working on more sports.  Please check back soon to see our progress.

Have a sport in mind?  Looking for support to get it started?  Please contact our leadership at info@nebraskawarriors.com and we can speak about possibly helping out!
