FOR DISABLED VETERANS AND
MEMBERS OF THE ARMED SERVICES

SPORT. COMPETITION. CAMRADARIE.

Bridge II Sports is honored to host Valor Games Southeast 2017, celebrating our 5th consecutive year joining with the Department of Veterans Affairs and community and corporate partners on this initiative. 

Valor Games Southeast invites disabled Veterans and disabled members of the Armed Forces from around the country to Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill for 3 days of spirited competition in 11 adapted sports. National coaches and experts in each sport are available to educate, evaluate and empower.

Valor Games Southeast is geared as an introductory competition to give opportunity for both those facing life for the first time with a disability and those continuing to gain confidence as they live daily with a disability. A body and mind changed by injury needs the discipline and challenge of physical activity to stay healthy physically, mentally and emotionally. It is the key to recovery, long-term health and re-integration into your community at home.

 Athletes participating in the Games will have the  privilege to compete in arguably the most iconic and beautiful sports venues in the world—the Dean Smith Center at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill; Cameron Indoor Stadium at Duke University and Lake Crabtree Park in Wake County.

Valor Games Southeast 2017 will be held May 22-25—the week between Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day.  The Games have become a symbol of empowerment, honor and hope during a time of year when our attention focuses on our wounded and fallen soldiers.

All meals, lodging at Valor Games Southeast specific hotels (3 nights, double occupancy with another athlete) and transportation to/from venues  are provided DURING Valor Games Southeast to registered athletes.  Athletes are responsible for their own transportation to and from Valor Games Southeast.

All interested athletes must register and meet set registration requirements. 

Come join other military service members, challenge your personal limits

and discover that disability does not define who you are!
