Senior Games


If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you won't
If you'd like to win but you think you can't
It's almost a cinch you won't
If you think you'll loose, you've lost
For out in the world you'll find
Success begins with a fellow's will


In 1983 N.C. Senior Games began with a vision to create a year-round health promotion and education program for North Carolinians 55 years of age and better.  Today, there are over 60,000 participants in 54 local games programs that serve all 100 counties across the state. Senior Games is a holistic approach to the fitness of the body, mind and spirit while enjoying the company of friends, family, spectators and volunteers.

Each spring, thousands of people enjoy participating in local Senior Games in North Carolina.  The qualifiers are invited to participate each fall in the Senior Games State Finals held in Raleigh.  Every two years, the State Final winners qualify to represent North Carolina at the National Senior Games.
