Warrior Care Month Sitting Volleyball

Warrior Care Month - observed each November - is a month-long program to bring awareness to the many ways the military cares for and supports wounded, ill and injured service members, their families and caregivers, and showcases their courage, strength and resilience. The enduring theme for Warrior Care Month is "Show of Strength."

In observance of Warrior Care Month, the U.S. Army Medical Command Deputy Chief of Staff for Warrior Care and Transition will participate in the annual Joint Services Sitting Volleyball Exhibition at the Pentagon Athletic Center on Thursday, November 17, 2016. The exhibition consists of teams from the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Special Operations Command. The exhibition aims to highlight the benefits of adaptive reconditioning, while also raising awareness to how the Department of Defense supports warrior care.

There are a few key differences between traditional volleyball and sitting volleyball. The court size and height of the net are modified for sitting volleyball. The position of each player is determined and controlled by the position of their bottoms. This means that the hand(s) and/or leg(s) may lie in the attack or free zone outside the court. "Bottom" is defined as the upper part of the body, from shoulder to one's buttocks. The player is not allowed to lift his/her bottom from the court when executing any type of attack-hit. The back-row player may perform any type of attack-hit from any height, if at the time of the hit the bottom does not touch or cross over to the attack line. The player must have contact with the court with some part of the upper part of the body at all times when playing the ball, except when making a defensive free zone play. In such defensive play, a loss of contact with the court is permitted for a moment.

Warrior Care Month Wheelchair Rugby

Warrior Care Month - observed each November - is a month-long program to bring awareness to the many ways the military cares for and supports wounded, ill and injured service members, their families and caregivers, and showcases their courage, strength and resilience. The theme for Warrior Care Month 2016 is “Show of Strength.”

In observance of Warrior Care Month, the U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition Program will participate in the second annual Joint Services Wheelchair Rugby Exhibition Matches at the West Fitness Center on Joint Base Andrews on Monday, November 14, 2016. The exhibition consists of teams from the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Special Operations Command. The Exhibition aims to highlight the benefits of adaptive reconditioning, while also raising awareness to how the Department of Defense supports warrior care.

Wheelchair rugby is an adaptive sport for athletes with a disability. Each team consists of four players whose goal is to carry the ball over the opposing team's goal line. Contact between players' wheelchairs is permitted, and in fact, encouraged as players use their wheelchairs to block and hold the opposing team from advancing. Originally called Murderball, Wheelchair rugby was first invented in 1977 in Winnipeg, Canada.
