SPORTS AND GAMES

Each spring, the Cherokee/Clay County Senior Games & SilverArts conducts its Senior Games and Sports competitions.  Competitions are broken down by Gender and Age categories.

 

The age of the participants as of December 31st of the current year determines in which of the 5 year age divisions they participate -     50-54,  55-59,  60-64,  65-69,  70-74,  75-79,  80-84,  85-89 or 90+.

Those competitors who place in the top 3 in most of the events (see the Sports info tab for more detailed information) will qualify to participate the North Carolina State Finals which are held in the fall of each year.

Medals or not, GET UP, GET OUT and GET GOING!  Come and join us for some fun, meet some new friends and enjoy a little recreation.
