*Does not count toward King or Queen.

As a reminder about how the King & Queen are typically decided: At least 3 individuals of the same age/sex group must compete in an event in order for the medals to count toward the King or Queen title. Medals will count towards the “Most Medals” title. If there is a tie in # of medals, points determine the winner (Bronze 1, Silver 2, Gold 3).

Join The Senior Games Gang , Today!

Are you looking for fun, friendship and maybe a little competition year-round? Do you want to keep the spirit of Senior Games going year-round? Become a member of the Senior Games Gang, and you can do it all! The Gang is a membership program for area adults age 55+. Gang members develop new friendships, enjoy six members-only events and a special holiday service project during the year, and some even develop a little “romance!” (Yes, we’ve had Gang marriages over the years!)

Membership includes free registration for the week-long annual Senior Games. Most importantly, Gang membership dues serve as donations to LifeSpan’s mission of Promoting Independent Living for People of All Ages. Donations help provide services such as Meals to Go!, Transportation, Care Management, Options Counseling and numerous other in-home supports and services.
