The Texas Senior Games Association (TSGA) is a permanent not-for-profit organization committed to the senior citizens of Texas and their desire to compete in senior amateur sports within the state. TSGA was created to encourage involvement in senior sports and to promote physical and educational activities for seniors. The TSGA is a member organization of the National Senior Games Association (NSGA). The NSGA, organized in 1985, sanctions senior games in 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Veterans Golden Age games that qualify athletes to participate in the National Senior Games. The National Senior Games are conducted every two years, starting in 1987. These games have become one of the largest multi-sport athletic competitions in the world.
TSGA is operated by a governing board consisting of volunteer athletes, local games representatives, sponsors, and other interested persons. The Board oversees the local games, the presentation of the Texas Senior Games each year, and every two years identifies those athletes qualified to represent Texas at the National Senior Games.
