3. What if my local game site doesn’t offer a sport that is in the State Games?

If you want to know what sports the multiple local game sites are offering you can click here to view the Local Games schedules. Local Senior Games usually take place during Feb-May of each year.
4. From Local games to State games, what happens if my age changes into another age bracket?
Official age for our competition will be determined by the participant’s age as of December 31st , of the current year (meaning your age on last day of the year is your official age for competition). This will apply to both local, state, and National competition.

A Registration fee is always applicable and varies with the 2 deadlines. Other applicable fees could consist of Housing, Meal Card, Golf, Banquet, Guest Pass, parking and/or Result Book, if the athlete chooses any of those additional options/fees. Please see the pictures below for our 2023 State Summer Games “Additional Fee Box” plus our Summer Games Housing and Meals “Fee Box”, as an example.

6. If my sport is in the doubles category and I qualified for Nationals, does that mean I must have the same doubles partner in the National Games?
