VSG Virginia Senior Games

Hello VSG Athletes,
Sadly, we must inform you that the 2020 Virginia Senior Games have been cancelled.
In collaboration with the National Senior Games and the VSG Committee, this very difficult decision was determined after carefully considering a number of key factors:
  • The safety of our athletes, sponsors, local organizers, and volunteers.
  • Guidelines presented by national, state, and local governments.
  • Availability of sports venues.
  • Significantly reduced staffing available to plan, implement, and manage the games.
