Registration for the 2023 Oregon Senior Games will open April 3rd at 9 a.m. PT.
After two successful years, Visit Corvallis and athletes alike are excited to see the Oregon Senior Games return to the City again this summer. Most of the events will be held over the weekends of August 10-13 and 17-20, 2023. Coming off the end of the National Senior Games that is taking place in July 2023 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this will be the first year in Corvallis where athletes will not qualify for the National event as the organization returns to its normal qualifying schedule after COVID – qualification on even-numbered years and Nationals on odd-numbered years. However, this usually doesn’t stop athletes from competing at the state level – 76% of surveyed athletes say they don’t use this event to qualify for Nationals!
The Games are open to athletes of all skill levels who will be at least 50 years old by December 31, 2023, who wish to compete in the sports offered.
“As a member of the National Senior Games Association, we are dedicated to motivating active adults to lead a healthy lifestyle through the senior games movement,” says Morgan Baker, State Coordinator of the Oregon Senior Games. “Our participants encourage one another to do their best whether they are a first-time competitor or a seasoned athlete. You can really feel the community and support at these different events.”
Plus, studies show that people who stay active as they age have better mental health and keep their bodies younger and healthier to live longer.
Early-bird registration will be available through June 11th. Competitions will include archery, bowling, cycling time trial, disc golf, golf, pickleball, power walk, race walk, racquetball, road race 5k and 10k, softball, swimming, table tennis, tennis, track & field, and triathlon.
