Checking in with the 50+ Athletes in Virginia
2020 VSG Update
COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello VSG Athletes,

Thank you for your patience in these trying times. VSG is especially grateful to those of you who have responded to us with positivity, understanding, and support.

Here is an update of the state of the Games as of 4/7/2020:

  • VSG is committed to holding 2020 Games for you in this, a 2021 National Senior Games qualifying year.
  • VSG is collaborating frequently with National Senior Games, and in particular, with other state games in the southeastern United States region to include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
  • As you know, the Governor of Virginia has issued a Stay at Home order through June 10, 2020.  Therefore, there will be no VSG events prior to June 10, 2020.
  • At this time, and because VSG relies upon city and county park and recreation facilities and professionals, we are unable to provide any confirmed event dates, as sites and manpower are unknown as of now.
  • Events are likely to take place as soon as a facility is available and logistics can be successfully managed, which may mean that all VSG sporting events will likely not be held in the course of 4-5 consecutive days as is typical.
  • VSG will convey new event dates to athletes with as much notice as is feasible.
  • Rather than close VSG registration on April 15, 2020, registration will remain open until May 15, 2020.

Here is how you can help:
  1. Please EMAIL vsg@vrps.com with any questions, concerns, partner/team changes, etc.  Please refrain from telephoning.
  2. Please be patient.  We understand that it is difficult to make plans, but as you know, it is beyond the control of VSG.
  3. Reference www.virginiaseniorgames.org for all information related to VSG.
  4. If you are interested and available for virtual interviewing for Virginia sports media, please indicate so by emailing vsg@vrps.com with your name, VSG history, and contact information.  Athletes selected for interviews must be capable of managing Zoom, GoTo, or other video conferencing software independently from their workstation or smartphone.
  5. Please be diligent in practicing all COVID-19 safety precautions.

VSG would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all athletes, sponsors, volunteers, and supporters as we work through this together.
