Who We Are
The Springfield Park District and The Illinois Senior Olympic Advisory Board invite all Men and Women 50 years of age and older to come and participate in this wonderful senior athletic event. There are over 20 event categories and team sports offered.
We are proud to promote healthy lifestyles for adults, particularly seniors 50 years of age and older. According to the Surgeon General and the National Prevention Council, the health-related benefits of regular exercise include lowered risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, as well as an increase in muscle strength, flexibility, and aerobic capacity. Their recommendation is that ALL adults get AT LEAST 150 minutes of moderately difficult exercise each week, and training for your favorite event is the perfect way to do so! Our competition is also a great way to make new friends and qualify for the National Senior Games!
