We have added a 40-49 Masters age division. This division is just for the Kentucky Senior Games. There is no qualifying for this division for the nationals as the National Senior Games are for ages 50+ only.
Also we have an adaptive sports division for each competition as well as special emphasis for entries for our disabled veterans. Non-ambulatory veterans are eligible for free entry in to the Kentucky Senior Games through a joint program between the National Senior Games and the Veterans' Administration.. Email Fmiklavcic@aol.com for information on this program.
Entry deadlines August 17 for August events, September 2 for September events

KY Athletes Succeed at 2015 Nationals
Kentucky athletes posted 26 golds, 16 silvers, and 7 bronze medals during the National Senior Games in Minneapolis, July 3-16, 2015. Jim Blackwell set an NSGA record in the Men’s 75-79 High Jump.
The goal of the Kentucky Senior Games is to maintain or improve the physical, mental, and emotional health of all Kentuckians 50 years of age and over through a year-round program of fitness and health promotion, as well as providing competitive opportunities for those 40-49, even though those athletes do not move on to the National Senior Games. This is accomplished through seasonal competitions at local, regional, and state levels.
The Kentucky Senior Games encourages older adults to stay active and fit, revive past fitness and recreational skills or learn new ones. Social events, ceremonies, and the arts are also an integral part of this successful program.
The Kentucky Senior Games programs are fun and challenging. Please come and join us! You will be glad you did
All men and women 50 years of age and over are eligible to participate in the Kentucky Senior Games as well as those 40-49 in the masters division. We also accept out of state participants.
The Kentucky Senior Games is the only qualifying site in the state of Kentucky for the National Senior Games.
