More than 500 older adults from across York County are expected to come together in late June for the 17th annual York County Senior Games. The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles and fitness for York County men and women aged 50 and older (by 12/31/2018). Senior Games extends for a 5-day period, from June 18 through June 22, 2018. Compete for medals in over 45 events, from triathlon to horseshoes, bocce, poker, corn hole, swimming, Wii bowling, target and trap shooting - to name but a few. There is something for everyone of all fitness levels! There is a $15 non-refundable registration fee, good for an unlimited number of non-conflicting events. ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY THE JUNE 11 REGISTRATION DEADLINE! Registrations should be received as early as possible because of limited openings in some events.
Not sure about participating?? Have as much fun as the competitors! Volunteers are also sought to help support the games. It's a particularly great opportunity for adult civic organizations, church groups, high school and college students or businesses. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.
