Pittsburgh has been selected as the site of the 2023 National Senior Games so the 2022 Kentucky Senior Games will be a qualifier for the 2023 Games in Pittsburgh.
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of Howard Hall, one of the legends of the Kentucky Senior Games and National Senior Games competitions.   I have included a link to the obituary in the State-Journal.
  Howard Hall,  Kentucky Senior Games flag bearer at 2015 National Senior Games ceremonies in Minneapolis with Meg Shonkwiler.
     Howard was an individual that never met a person he didn't like.  He was genuinely interested in everyone he came in to contact with-fellow competitors,  officials, volunteers and families.  Many of you are marked down in his notebook where he commemorated each of the events he competed in .  Four days after his 99th birthday Howard garnered gold medals in the Kentucky Senior Games in shuffleboard, billiards and bocce.
      Howard will be missed.

Kentucky Senior Games are an "OPEN" Senior Games meaning we welcome competitors from other states.

We have added a 40-49 Masters age division.  This division is just for the Kentucky Senior Games.  There is no qualifying for this division for the nationals as the National Senior Games are for ages 50+ only.

Also we have an adaptive sports division for each competition as well as special emphasis for entries for our disabled veterans.  Non-ambulatory veterans are eligible for free entry in to the Kentucky Senior Games.  Email Fmiklavcic2@gmail.com for information on this program.

Entry deadlines  August 14 for August events,  September 2 for September events

Stay Active and Fit!

The goal of the Kentucky Senior Games is to maintain or improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of all Kentuckians 50 years of age and over through a year-round program of fitness and health promotion, as well as providing competitive opportunities for those 40-49, even though those athletes do not move on to the National Senior Games. This is accomplished through seasonal competitions at local, regional, and state levels.

The Kentucky Senior Games encourages older adults to stay active and fit, revive past fitness and recreational skills or learn new ones. Social events, ceremonies, and the arts are also an integral part of this successful program.
