I qualified for the National Senior Games 2007 in Louisville, Kentucky but was unable to attend. During 2008 I plan on competing at my utmost so I can qualify at the state level for Nationals to be held in San Francisco during 2009.
The National Senior Games Association (NSGA) is the nation’s leading organization representing fitness and sports interests for mature adults. NSGA is the U.S. Olympic Committee’s official arm to seniors and functions in cooperation with the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. More than 250,000 mature adults are involved in training, competition, and education on a year-round basis.
Men and women of all fitness levels can take part in a variety of athletic and non-athletic competitions, including archery, softball, basketball, bowling, croquet, cycling, golf, tennis, racquetball, shuffleboard, softball, swimming, tennis, track & field, Discus, Shot Put, Javelin, Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump, Pole Vault, hammer throw, racewalking, road race running, pickle ball, billiards, and weightlifting.
I would love to see the National Senior Games 2009 to be the largest event ever. To qualify for enrollment in the various events, you need to place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in the local games during 2008. There are senior games in all 50 states.
See you there! Everyone 50 years old and older are invited to compete.
