VSG Virginia Senior Games

Greetings Virginia Senior Games athletes and sponsors,
The Virginia Recreation and Park Society, along with local parks and recreation agencies have produced and presented the Virginia Senior Games for 42 years. During that time, thousands of athletes have competed in dozens of events, built lasting friendships, and worked to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle.

The Board of Directors of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society has determined that our non-profit organization is no longer equipped to produce the games in a manner necessary to maintain the high standards required for athletes to gather and compete.

There are plans in place for the Virginia Senior Games to continue under new ownership. We are pleased to announce that the Virginia Senior Games will be operated by Riverdog Management, a company under Doug Fonder Incorporated. Doug has over 30 years of experience with managing and producing amateur sporting events not only in Virginia, but throughout the United States. Doug was Chairman of the Board of the Virginia Sports Commission under both Governor Gerald Baliles and Governor Doug Wilder. He was also the founder of Virginia Amateur Sports, that has been putting on the Commonwealth Games for over 30 years.

We strongly believe that Riverdog Management is in a position to take the Virginia Senior Games to the next level.

As for competition in 2021, a final decision has not been made; however Riverdog Management will be in touch when a decision is made, and will reach out to everyone. No additional information will be forthcoming from the Virginia Recreation and Park Society.

On behalf of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society, I would like to thank each of you for supporting and participating in the Virginia Senior Games, and wish you continued success in your competition.

Thank you,

Jim Stutts
