About the Manitoba 55+ Games:
Since 1983, the Manitoba Society of Seniors (MSOS) had proudly hosted the annual 55+ Games in a different community in Manitoba each year. In 2012, the torch and spirit of the Games was placed in the capable hands of the Active Living Coalition for Older Adults in Manitoba (ALCOA-MB) – now Active Aging in Manitoba (AAIM). Over 25 age-friendly events will attract more than 1000 athletes, 300 volunteers and many more spectators to 3 days of fun. If you have never been, this is one celebration you will not want to miss!
The Games are the largest 55+ annual multi-sport event in Manitoba, breaking the common stereotype that seniors don’t stay active into their 60s, 70s and 80s and beyond! Many other participants have been bit by the “Games bug” and continue to visit the Games every year no matter where the event is held.
Events range from card games to scrabble, snooker, floor curling/shuffleboard, track, swimming and slo-pitch. The 3 days of activities makes for some fun and enjoyable competition for participants and spectators alike!
The Games, while emphasizing active, recreational activities, are also about providing a social and cultural atmosphere through entertainment and social events. A Variety Concert is held on the Tuesday night and an Athletes’ Banquet allows the participants a chance to mingle on Wednesday night.
If you are interested in learning more about this exciting multi-sport event please continue to browse our games website. Participants, volunteers, spectators and sponsors are all needed to make the Games a success. We look forward to seeing you there!
