2018 is a qualifying year for the National Senior Games to be held in Albuquerque, NM June 14 – 25, 2019. Vermont is an open state as defined by the NSGA. Out-of-state residents are welcome to participate in Vermont events. Per NSGA rules:
Each event allows for a specific number of qualifiers. If out-of-state residents qualify at an “Open” qualifying games, they will not take away a qualifying spot from a state resident. “Open” games may qualify the number of state residents specified for each event in addition to the out-of-state qualifiers. The NSGA definition of an athlete’s state of residence is that state in which the person resides for at least six months out of the year.”
For example, if the top four competitors in an event are qualified for the national games, the top four Vermont residents will qualify along with the top four overall finishers.
