What are the age requirements to compete in the Texas Senior Games?
All athletes must be 50 years old by December 31, 2017. Athlete’s competition age will be based on his/her age on December 31, 2017.
Participants will compete in one of the following age categories for both individual and/or doubles sports: 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-7, 85-89, 90-94, 95-99. Team sports are divided into the following brackets: 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+, 70+, 75+, and 80+. Your age group is determined by your age on December 31, 2017. Partner and team age groups will be determined by the age of the youngest partner/team member.
All athletes may be required to show proof of age during the Games. Any athletes unable to show proof of age will be disqualified. Any team with a rostered individual who is not of minimum age, or whose age as listed on the roster is incorrect and causes the team to play in the wrong age division, will be disqualified.
What if I want to register for a doubles event, but I don’t have a partner?
We have a feature on our website called “PartnerFinder”. We recommend you check PartnerFinder to see if you can find a partner before you register. If you want to register for an event before you find a partner, you may do so by leaving the “Partner’s Athlete Number” blank. It will be your responsibility to find a partner and add the information to your registration. If your registration has a blank partner on March 7, we may cancel that event for you.
Where do I check-in for my events?
Check-in for all events is at the event venue, not at the t-shirt pick up. For example: If you are competing in cycling, you will check in at Texas Research Park. Links, addresses, and directions to all locations may be found here.
Where & when do I pick up my t-shirt?
T-shirts may be picked up at the Barshop Jewish Community Center, located at 12500 N.W. Military Hwy, 78231, in Auditorium C on the Main Level beginning Thurs., March 30 from 1pm-5pm, March 31 - April 8 from 9am-5pm, and Sun., April 9 t-shirts may be picked up until 12:00 noon. If you are unable to stop by the JCC to pick up your t-shirt, you may send a friend in your place, or mail us a check for $4, payable to the JCC, and we can send your package by mail.
Will events be rescheduled or relocated due to inclement weather?
The Texas Senior Games reserves the right to cancel any event due to insufficient registration, weather, or events beyond their control. In the event of a venue change or event cancellation, the information will be posted online and announced on the hotline (210-302-6973). Every effort will be made to contact entrants prior to the start of the Games.
Something has come up and I am not able to compete, may I get a refund?
No, except for medical issues only. Refunds, less a $25 administrative fee, must be requested no later than March 7, and will only be issued with a written medical reason by a medical professional.
How many athletes are competing in my event in my age group?
With the number of athletes competing in over 20 events, we are unable to list all athletes in each event.
How many Sports and/or Events may I enter?
As long as events are not held at conflicting times, you may enter as many events as you desire. Scheduling cannot always be done to accommodate other events. You must be a member of a team to enter the team events.
Will I be required to provide my own equipment?
Participants are required to provide their own equipment, except as specified per their sport.
Where can I find official rules for the sport(s) in which I am competing?
All rules for the competitive events are set by the National Senior Games Association. Visit the NSGA website for specifics.
What hotel is close to my event? I need directions to my event? When do I play?
A variety of hotels in the San Antonio area offer discounts for our athletes. Be sure to check our Lodging page for more info, and don't forget to check out what else our lovely city has to offer!
How can I qualify for Nationals in 2017?
