Due to the close proximity during competition and for the safety of the athletes, Alabama Senior Olympics has decided to cancel the following events: Basketball, Cycling - Road Race 20K/40K events, Road Race (running), Triathlon & Volleyball.
The Alabama Senior Olympics' Board has decided to move forward with this year's events based on the current, state mandates and the overwhelming response from our athletes wanting to compete. If changes are made by the state government to limit sporting events, number of people gathered, etc., then the events will be canceled for 2020. In moving forward, each athlete will be asked to sign a waiver upon arrival to events, hand sanitizer will be provided, shared equipment will be sanitized after each match/game and social distancing will be encouraged during all events. We ask that each athlete consults with their physician on the risk of participation. For athletes interested in qualifying for the National Senior Games, 2021 Qualifications have been adjusted to meet the needs of our athletes during the COVID-19 pandemic. See the "2021 Qualifications" tab for updated guidelines. Events are currently being rescheduled for this Fall. If an event is canceled or a registered athlete does not feel it is safe for them to compete during the outbreak, a full refund will be given. Please continue to check the website for updates.
Age divisions are divided into 5 year age brackets. 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, etc.
Age brackets for doubles/team events are determined by the youngest player.
