Let The Senior Games Begin!
Delaware County Council Sponsors 2015 Senior Games
Delaware County senior athletes will have the chance to show their athletic skills in the Delaware County Senior Games, set for June 8-19 at venues throughout the County.
More than 650 athletes will compete for medals in a variety of Olympic-style sports such as golf, bowling, table tennis, horseshoes, and track & field.
Delaware County Council sponsors the Senior Games to promote healthy lifestyles through fitness, sports, and an active involvement in life. This year’s theme is “Get Into the Game” and residents 50 and older of every skill level are encouraged to participate.
County Council’s partners in the Senior Games are the Delaware County Department of Parks and Recreation, Brandywine Conference and Visitors Bureau, and the County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA.)
The 2015 Senior Games will kick off with a special Opening Event and Bocce Exhibition at noon, June 8, at Rose Tree Park, to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the games. Registration for the games is $15 and is open to all Delaware County residents 50 and older.
“The great thing about the Delaware County Senior Games is that it encourages residents to stay socially and physically active throughout the year,” said County Councilman Michael Culp. “Residents who participate in the games build solid friendships. Those friendships and activities help our seniors maintain a healthy level of physical fitness.”
Co-chairs for the 2015 Senior Games are Marc Manfre, Director of Parks and Recreation, Tore Fiore, Director of Brandywine Conference and Visitors Bureau, and Denise V. Stewart, Director of COSA.
Gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded in every age category and all participating seniors and volunteers receive a free Senior Games T-Shirt.
Registration forms are available at the County Parks Department in Rose Tree Park, at local libraries and senior centers, through the County Web site at www.co.delaware.pa.us or at the Senior Games Web site at www.delcoseniorgames.org.
