Dear St. Louis Senior Olympic Athletes, Volunteers & Supporters,
Thank you for visiting our website and either taking the first step to becoming involved in the St. Louis Senior Olympics or continuing your support of our fabulous event. I cannot tell you how excited we are for 2015. Over Memorial Day Weekend, we will again host more than 1,100 athletes, 200+ volunteers, countless supporters and fans and of course our FABULOUS sponsors.
Mark your calendars and join us when we kick off the St. Louis Senior Olympics on Thursday, May 21, at 1:30pm with our lovely Senior Olympic Tap Dancers. If you cannot join us for this spectacle, we look forward to seeing you at one of our community venues or around the J. We wish you the best of luck in competition, but more importantly, we hope you have FUN and enjoy in the camaraderie that is the St. Louis Senior Olympics.
The 2015 Games are being chaired by Brian Goldman, a former J employee who began his involvement with the St. Louis Senior Olympics on the Grounds Crew, lining softball fields, filling water jugs and passing out oranges. Brian has been a longstanding Event Director of the Soccer Accuracy Kick and was the 2014 recipient of the Walter “Doc” Eberhardt Volunteer Award.
The 2015 Games will look similar to prior years, with the exception of a few exciting additions and changes. The Games welcome a new Team Event – Ulitmate Frisbee. The Billiards competition will now include a 9-Ball Tournament. The Horseshoes tournaments – both singles and doubles – will take place an a new indoor, air-conditioned venue, Quail Ridge Horseshoe Club.
One final thank you to our amazing sponsor support, without which we would not exist. Please take a moment to visit the 2015 Sponsors page and their individual websites. If you are interested in sponsoring the 2015 St. Louis Senior Olympics, please contact me.
Thank you as always for your support of the Games.
