What is Senior Games?
Charlotte Mecklenburg Senior Games (CMSG) is a non-profit organization established to promote health and wellness for persons 50 and better. Senior Games provides a forum to meet new people, enjoy healthy competition, be creative and most importantly to HAVE FUN!!! Senior Games is NOT what you do compared to someone else, but what YOU do compared to what you are capable of doing. Senior Games partners with the following Coordinating Agencies:
To meet new people with an interest in leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
To have an opportunity to compete.
To encourage and expand creative skills through SilverArts.
To be involved.
To have FUN, FUN, FUN!
Who Is Eligible?
Charlotte Mecklenburg Senior Games holds athletic and artistic competitions in April and May of each year. Participants must be 50 years of age or better and must reside in North Carolina at least 3 consecutive months of the year. Registration forms must be postmarked by March 21 each year to participate.
Senior Games is a wonderful experience. Everyone knows someone who is 50 or better who could benefit from participating in Senior Games. Keep in mind, you don't have to be an athlete to be involved!
