The following are some of the main criteria for the Sports events:
The safety and sportsmanlike conduct of everyone is of paramount concern. We want everyone to have fun and enjoy the games. Senior Games Officials have the authority to disqualify, and/or remove, from current and future NCSG programs, anyone who exhibits inappropriate behavior or a condition of medical concern. Falsifying information in the registration process will not be permitted and may result in disqualification from current and future Senior Games activities.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible to participate, you must be 50 years of age or better on or before December 31 of the current year and be a resident of Cherokee, Clay and Graham counties for three (3) consecutive months each year.
Participants will compete in age groups based on 5-year increments. The age of the participants as of December 31st of the current year determines in which of the 5 year age divisions they participate.
These are: 50 - 54, 55 - 59, 60 - 64, 65 - 69, 70 - 74, 75 - 79, 80 - 84, 85 - 89, 90+
The age of the youngest player will determine the age group.
A player may compete in only one age group per event category. The age groups are the same as in individual sports.
Doubles Partners – If an individual’s partner cannot come to State Finals, that person may select another partner who qualified in that Sport at a Local Games.
