Our number one priority is for the safety of our athletes and volunteers. To this end, our Board has voted to cancel the 2020 Alaska International Senior Games.
Our Games are, and have always been, social events. Our events are designed for seniors, many of whom are in the vulnerable population and many have other compromised health conditions. Our Board considered ways to socially distance athletes and volunteers and concluded that, although the intention was laudable, we could not safely hold the events and police them for social distancing. Since there are still many unknowns about the coronavirus, we cannot in good conscience hold this year’s Games and potentially put people in jeopardy.
The good news is we are already planning for the 2021 Alaska International Senior Games! We are working on the dates now.
We are certainly looking forward to seeing you next year! Wishing you good health!
