The Vermont Senior Games Association is a member in good standing of the National Senior Games Association that hosts year-round sports and fitness competitions and noncompetitive physical fitness oriented programs, activities, and education for the aged 50+ community incorporating the concepts of fun, fellowship and fitness.
Vermont is an “open” state, which means that all Vermont Senior Games events are open to all persons 50 years old and over and not just Vermont residents. Events are held throughout the year in different locations around the state. VRPA members partner with the Vermont Senior Games organizers to host some of these events. Gold, silver and bronze state championship medals are awarded to the first, second and third place finishers in five year age groups (i.e. 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc.) The gold medal winners become the Vermont Senior Games State Champions. Award winners qualify for the biennial National Senior Games. The next National Senior Games Competition will be held in Cleveland, OH from July 21-August 5, 2013.
