WELCOME TO ARIZONA SENIOR OLYMPICS! The following is general information that you will need to know
before you register. Many things are the same, but some have changed so please read this information carefully.
INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
GAME DATES AND TIMES: February 13 thru April 1, 2023 or longer if necessary. Please check our website frequently for information regarding your sport. The most current information will be under the tab “2023 Games”.
OPEN STATE: Out of state athletes are welcome!
FEES: $40.00 Registration (reduced), plus the sport fees for your chosen events.
AGREEMENTS: All athletes are required to accept the terms of the Waiver of Liability and the Code of Conduct.
REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT: Each participant must register as an individual. Each participant must have their own email address to which he or she has access. (Free email addresses are available from several providers, including Gmail.com) On-line payment is by credit card only. We are sorry but there is no mail in registration. Limited events accept on-site registration and will accept credit cards or checks only.
CONFIRMATION: Participants will receive an email confirmation of entry when they register. PLEASE BRING YOUR CONFIRMATION (PRINTED OR ON YOUR PHONE) WHEN YOU CHECK IN AT YOUR EVENT.
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 VALID PHOTO ID showing your date of birth
DOUBLES: Players must recruit their own partners prior to registering. If you cannot find a partner in your age group you may recruit someone in a younger age group. After recruiting a partner, follow the procedure for TEAM REGISTRATION.
TEAM REGISTRATION FOR LARGE TEAMS: (Softball and Volleyball)
The Manager, Coach or Captain 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 email invitation to register. No team will be considered complete until ALL players are registered.
AGE GROUPS: Competition is by age group starting at 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69 etc. Most sports use12/31/2023 to determine your age group. Swimming and Track & Field use age on the day of the competition. The age of a team or doubles pair is determined by the age of the youngest member. We reserve the 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 winners in each age group. Ribbons will be given as is appropriate to the sport. Awards will be presented in an Olympic-style ceremony at the Awards Area when the names of the winners are called. If you win an award but do attend the awards ceremony, you will need to call the ASO office for an appointment to pick up your award. Awards cannot be mailed.
REFUNDS: Refunds are given only for family bereavement or serious medical conditions resulting in inability to participate. Requests must be received by April 25. A signed and dated note from your physician, or a funeral program, is required documentation. Because we incur certain costs even if you cancel, a $25 processing fee is deducted from the refund. THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OF TEAM REGISTRATION FEES.
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.
SPECTATORS: Spectators are welcome in designated seating areas.
MULTIPLE EVENTS: Be sure to check the CALENDAR OF EVENTS found on this website to avoid registering for events with conflicting dates. You are responsible to check in and be at your event at the time listed on the SPORT INFORMATION SHEET for your event, which is found under the 2023 Registration tab at the top of our website (www.seniorgames.org)
HEALTH AND SAFETY: Because people over 50 are considered to be at higher risk for serious illnesses, many people choose to wear masks and/or socially distance themselves whenever possible. Arizona Senior Olympics supports and respects athletes who choose to do so, as well as those who do not, and we ask that you exhibit good will and sportsmanship to all athletes. We are all part of this movement because we value health, wellbeing, friendship, and camaraderie, and there is no greater way to show that than by respecting the health decisions of others.
