Welcome, Volunteers!

The San Diego Senior Games would not exist without the generous efforts of our amazing volunteers!  Thanks to their compassion and devotion, we can provide a spectacular event for the thousands of athletes who participate each year.


Paying it forward works. Our volunteers not only help improve lives but also save lives by giving our athletes the opportunity to compete, stay healthy and make friendships that last a lifetime!


The cool thing is that YOU, too, can experience all these wonderful things by volunteering.


Our events are held in July, August and September of each year. We have over 30 sports competitions being held throughout San Diego. We will have sign-up sheets available within 60 days before the event date. Simply choose the sport(s) and the date(s) you’d like to volunteer and we’ll have that sports coordinator contact you with details.

The tasks vary from sport to sport, but most sports need volunteers for:

  • Registration and Athlete Check-in
  • Sport-specific Duties (such as scorekeeping)
  • Food and Water Distribution
  • Medal Ceremony
  • Set-up and Take Down

If you prefer to use your managerial skills, then our office would gladly appreciate your help!

We are seeking volunteers who specialize in these tasks:

  • Answering Phone Calls and Distributing Messages
  • Database Entry into Excel
  • Social Media Monitoring
  • Assistant Event Planner
  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • Exhibition Leader
