Who We Are?

Our Mission

We are an Adult level team that relies solely on fundraising and charitable donations to support our program throughout the season. 

Our season runs all year and includes participating in two USA Hockey National Tournaments: The Warrior Classic (Usually in October) and the USA Hockey Disabled Festival (usually in March),  which is held in a different city each year. 

At both tournaments we will compete against other Warrior teams from around the country for National Titles. 

In addition, the Panthers Warriors are planing to host a Warrior Invitational Tournament in memory of our #1 Warrior Gabriel “Gabe” Robert Accardi. (Dates to be determined), participate in other veteran tournaments, enter a team in the adult league at the Panthers Ice Den, host fundraising games and participate in community events.


To be eligible to compete in the Panthers Warriors Hockey Program, participants must be or have been Veterans and Members of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard).   To participate in USA Hockey Warrior tournaments, players are required to have been discharged under honorable or general conditions and carry a 10% disability rating from the VA.  Complete eligibility guidelines are available at: usahockey.com/warriorhockey

The Panthers Warriors is non-profit 501 (C) 3 organization (Hockey Development Group, Inc. DBA Panthers Warriors).  

We depend on fundraising and charitable donations to fund Program. In addition to ice time, we fund the cost associated with participation in out of town games and tournaments and the travel costs, meals and lodging expenses. To offset these expenses, we seek donations from private individuals and corporate donors.  

We will also organize and play fundraising games against other hockey teams (i.e. Warriors, 1st Responders, College, HS, NHL Alumni, etc.) and organizations as a way to raise money for our program and sell Panthers Warriors logoed merchandise. If your organization is interested in playing a fundraiser game, please contact any of our team representatives.
