Do you want to have a good time or are you looking for a way to accumulate community service hours? We’ve got just the thing for you! Sign up to be a volunteer at the 2017 Texas Senior Games, and enjoy the many activities taking place Mar. 30-Apr. 9, 2017.
One of the key reasons for the success of the Texas Senior Games is our outstanding volunteers, who dedicate their time and energy to making the Games run so smoothly.
Each year, we anticipate more than 2,000 athletes from across Texas and other states to descend upon San Antonio for the Games. 2017 marks the 28th year San Antonio has hosted the Games, either at a local or state capacity, and our athletes are always impressed with the warm hospitality and strong sense of community spirit San Antonio offers. Our volunteers are a big part of why San Antonio is such a great place to host the Games year after year.
