WARRIOR FOR
LIFE FUND 

A Proud Supporter of the Navy SEAL Foundation

From active service to retirement, the Warrior For Life Fund will support our warriors by providing programs and infrastructure that help military families from all service branches cope with the unique challenges of combat, extended deployments, disabilities and the long lasting effects of war through the game of hockey while ensuring the bond of their service remains unbroken. The Warrior For Life Fund will memorialize the history and heritage of military service and honor those who have unselfishly given the ultimate sacrifice.

Capital Campaign: Warrior Ice Center

The Warrior Ice Center

The Warrior For Life Fund is working with a team of dedicated Virginia Beach hockey supporters to raise 3.5 million dollars to help build the Warrior Ice Center, a new energy efficient arena complex. The Warrior Ice Center will house and expand the Warrior for Life Fund youth and adult hockey programs, which are in part supported by the Navy SEAL Foundation, while growing and diversifying the game of hockey for military and civilian families in the Virginia Beach area. The Warrior Ice Arena will have two NHL regulation ice surfaces built to Paralympic Standards in order to accommodate the expanding sled hockey program and host adaptive hockey tournaments and serve the local military community and civilians in and around Hampton Roads, Virginia area which is home to the largest concentration of active duty and retired military personnel in the world.

Warrior Ice Center Overview

The Warrior Ice Center is envisioned as a 90,000 square foot facility built to house two NHL regulation size ice sheets, one with a concrete floor that can be covered to be used for non-ice events. One rink would be a showcase arena with approximately 4,000 seats, the other would have seating for 100-200 spectators. A center-hung video scoreboard would be used on the showcase rink and wall-mounted score boards on the second rink. Additionally, the facility and rinks are intended to be built to Paralympic Training Center standards to accommodate the sled hockey community. Other features of the facility would include: 8 locker rooms (with 2 larger ones designated for semi-pro/college teams) and 2 referee dressing rooms, a pro-shop/equipment rental stand, restaurant-style concession area, 3-4 meeting/party rooms, STEM lab for community children, a box office and office space. The facility will also serve as an authorized STEM field trip for Virginia public schools.
