ROTENGO WARRIORS

Purpose

USRTA started RoTenGo Warriors for wounded warriors, their families, and caregivers in San Antonio and surrounding areas.  USRTA is enthusiastic about the opportunity to offer this generation of wounded warriors  and their families a fun, recreational sporting program that is complementary to the several stages recovery and rehabilitation. RoTenGo Warriors can assist  wounded warriors in achieving a stronger sense of self, enhance physical  agility; and improve social readjustment skills with peers and family.

Goal

The goal of RoTenGo Warriors is to expand our mission delivery and to engage wounded warriors, their families, and caregivers in a new vehicle for wellness that is interactive and rewarding.

Structure

Engagement in the structured program features of RoTenGo Warriors provides participants with an opportunity to interact and compete against other players within and without the wounded warrior community

  • Classes – held with the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Sam Houston, beginning with 3 days a week for one month, then cycled once a week thereafter.  Warriors also attend public classes offered three days per week.

  • Tournaments – competitive exhibitions for aspiring and experienced RoTenGo players and athletes.  Two Warrior Transition Battalion Sports Day Tournaments, and one RoTenGo Family Fun Day and Tournament.

Benefits
