REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT: Please register on-line. Each participant must register as an individual with a unique email address and sign the waiver and Code of Conduct. On-line payment is by credit card only. Mail in registration is available upon request.
CONFIRMATION: Participants who register online will receive an immediate
confirmation of their entry. Participants who use paper registration will receive their confirmation by email (if we are given an email address) or within two weeks of receipt of their entry by mail.
CHECK IN:All participants are expected to check in at their sport venue 30 – 60 minutes prior to the start of competition (see Sports Information Sheet for your sport).
You must check in personally with a photo ID showing your date of birth.
DOUBLES:It is important to find a doubles partner before registering for the event. If you cannot find a partner in your age group you can play with someone in a younger age group. Once you identify that person you can follow the procedure for TEAM REGISTRATION. We’re sorry but ASO does not have a mechanism for matching up partners.
Large Teams:(Softball, Basketball, Volleyball)
The manager or designee will register a unique, easy to remember name of their team and pay the team fee. They will enter the emails of their players who will then receive an invitation to register. No team will be considered complete until ALL players are registered. Small Teams (3+) and Doubles will utilize this same procedure.
AGE GROUPS: Competition is by age group starting at 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 etc. All sports except Track & Field and Swimming use your age on 12/31/2020 to determine your age group. We reserve to right to combine groups when there is not enough competition in an age group. Combining is always into the next lower age group. This applies to both individual and team sports. Awards are always given by age group, regardless of combining.
AWARDS: Gold, silver and bronze medals will be given to first, second and third place finishers in each age group. Ribbons will be given as is appropriate to the sport. Awards are presented Olympic style, with attention and honor to the winning athletes and are given at the competition site as soon as possible after each event. As a courtesy to other athletes please plan to stay for the awards presentations. If that is not possible, medals may be picked up at the ASO office by appointment. Medals will not be mailed.
REFUNDS: Refunds are given only for bereavement or serious medical reasons and requests must be received by March 15. A doctor’s certification or funeral program is required for verification. A $20 processing fee will be deducted from the refund.
TEAM REFUNDS: Team fees are non-refundable.
INCLEMENT WEATHER: Every effort will be made to complete all events in every sport. A “rain or shine” policy will prevail unless there are safety issues. No refunds due to weather or circumstances beyond our control.
CONDUCT: Arizona Senior Olympics reserves the right to expel any athlete from any competition for the display of unsportsmanlike conduct. We expect every athlete to treat all fellow athletes and volunteers with respect and good will.
