Hi, AISG Team!
Thank you so much for being a part of our Alaska International Senior Games Team! Together we are stronger!
Our number one priority is for the safety of our athletes & volunteers. As we have already announced in our last newsletter, due to the COVID-19 the 2020 Alaska Senior Games have been canceled.
Here is information about how AISG Athletes can qualify for the National Senior Games Championships (NSGA) scheduled for November 5-18, 2021 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
This is an unprecedented situation for the NSGA that required a one-time adjustment for the 2021 National Senior Games. NSGA has established a registration process which includes a Priority Registration Period for qualified athletes followed by an Open Registration Period.
Priority Registration Period
Since the Alaska International Senior Games is unable to conduct our 2020 Games, AISG athletes who qualified in 2016 for the 2017 National Senior Games in Birmingham, AL and/or AISG athletes who qualified in 2018 for the 2019 National Senior Games in Albuquerque, NM will qualify in the respective sports/events for the 2021 National Senior Games.
The number of registrants may be limited for certain sports.
Open Registration Period
An Open Registration period will also be offered to athletes age 50+, who were unable to attend or qualify at a state senior games in 2020. The number of registrants may be limited for certain sports.
Change in Power Walk Qualification
Power Walk will continue as an Open Sport for the 2021 National Senior Games presented by Humana. Qualification will not be required for Power Walk.
NSGA reserves the right to make further adjustments to the National Senior Games qualification and registration processes.
We realize that this is not what we had envisioned for 2020. Unfortunately we do not have a magic wand to change everything we would like. So we will make the best of what we can control.
We control our attitude and how we respond.
Choose to be positive and get ready for August 6-15, 2021!
