Into Our 26th Year of Service

It’s a special time in the Northwest District, as we enter our sec-ond quarter century of service to senior men and women.

Our aim is to fulfill the mission of our parent organization, the LSOG: promote physical fitness and an improved quality of life for people 50 years and older through sports, games and physical activity.

Our steering com-mittee works year-round to provide a wide variety of events that will encourage involvement. Always on our mind is our invitation that was established the day these district games began: COME JOIN OUR FUN!

We invite all our previous participants to return to our games and to encourage newcomers to get in-volved in the growing Senior Olympics movement.

Entry forms and in-formation about our games can be found elsewhere on this website.
