Did You Know?


The MWHP is the first of its kind in the State of Michigan and one of very few in the country!

The Michigan Warriors Hockey Program (MWHP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created for charitable and recreational activities, namely, providing an educational and developmental hockey program for Disabled Veterans and to participate in volunteer community services.

We welcome Veterans of any disability or injury and any skill level to join the program and especially encourage those who have never played hockey before to come out and try. The MWHP is an Equal Opportunity Organization.

Since the program’s inception, the MWHP has provided over 4000 man-hours of ice time to over 100 Warriors throughout Southeastern Michigan and Metro-Detroit at no cost to the Disabled Veterans. All ice time is paid for through corporate sponsorships and private donations. Through MAHA and private donations, most Warriors have been outfitted with new, up-to-date skates and other safety equipment. The MWHP hosts a staff of volunteer coaches with an experienced and extensive background in hockey.

The MWHP has now grown to incorporate two of the ten regions designated by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency. Within the next five years, the MWHP plans on expanding and creating hockey teams in all ten regions.

The MWHP also has a community outreach program. Through community outreach, the MWHP participates in 2,000 hours of community service annually. The Warriors volunteer their time off the ice in programs such as Habitat for Humanity, the Humane Society, and Vets Helping Vets to name a few.
