Though we have missed seeing you at this year (due to cancellation of 2020 California Senior State Championships), we will look forward to seeing you at Nationals, not this year but in 2022!

We hope, though, you are already planning to join us sooner for the 2021 San Diego Senior Games, as well.  If all goes well and COVID is under control, we’ll come back with a bang!

In the meantime, we encourage you to stay in touch. We have recently launched along with Pasadena Senior Games and California Senior Games Association the Cynthia Rosedale Memorial Talk Series: Ask the Athlete. This  will be a Zoom event with a panelist and Q&A from the audience. It will take place every 2nd Monday of the month, featuring celebrity athletes, coaches and senior athletes.

While you are at it, help us keep the Senior Athlete Spotlight going! We encourage your stories, whether it is about yourself, a friend or a teammate. There is nothing better than inspirational stories to keep us stay positive through this pandemic!

Stay strong, stay safe, and we’ll keep in touch!
