The mission of the Senior Olympics is to promote health and fitness awareness, and foster the value of leading an active lifestyle among adults age 50 and over by—
The Tucson Senior Olympics is a program of the Tucson Parks & Recreation Department. The activities conducted provide opportunities for participants and the community to benefit. Improved physical and mental health, prolonged meaningful independent functioning, positive self-esteem, social and cultural interaction, and community mobilization are just a few of the quality enrichments offered through the Senior Olympics.
The program currently consists of two components—the Senior Olympic Festival and the Senior Olympic Activity Series.
The Festival, which is held annually in late January and early February, is Tucson's comprehensive competition for older adults involving numerous athletic and social activities. It was initiated in 1985 as a two-day event involving approximately 200 participants. Currently, over 3,500 athletes and volunteers participate in this 10-day Festival. More than 30 sports or activities involving over 100 competitive and non-competitive events are held at numerous venues around Tucson.
The Senior Olympic Activity Series is
an expansion of the Senior Olympic Festival into a year-round program
of activities. Initiated in the summer of 1997, the purpose of the Series
is to provide opportunities for beginner and intermediate participants
to learn, to practice and to experience competition in a supportive,
encouraging environment. Currently, the predominant component of this
program is instructional classes—regularly scheduled learning
sessions for ongoing participation. For more information about these
classes call the Tucson Parks and Recreation Department at 791-4877,
and the Tucson Senior Olympic Festival office at 719-3244.
