Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Camp

Marines and Marine veterans gather at the University of Central Florida to participate in the Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Clinic that will enhance their skills in the areas of passing and shooting, as well as both defensive and offensive techniques. The Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program (WAR-P) provides activities and opportunities for wounded, ill or injured Marines to train as athletes, while increasing their strength so they can continue with military service or develop healthy habits for life outside the service.
