2021 Vermont Senior Games events are contingent upon the state’s most
recent COVID guidelines and protocols. Details will be communicated to the athletes prior to the competition.
Please note that the 2021 National Senior Games, scheduled to be held in November in Fort Lauderdale, Florida have been moved to May 2022. As a result 2021 is an additional qualifying year for those games. All athletes finishing in the top FOUR in their age group in this tournament will qualify for the 2022 Nationals. In addition, in consideration of COVID-19, the National Senior Games has decided that any athlete who qualified for the 2019 Nationals in Albuquerque is also eligible for the 2021 competition, regardless of whether the athlete went to the 2019 National games.
