The National Veterans Golden Age Games offer sports and recreational competitive events for veterans 55 years of age and older.  These games are sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affair (VA), the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and Ladies Auxiliary, and Veterans Canteen service (VCS).

Inspired by the health and fitness movement for America’s senior citizens, the Games extend that concept to our nation’s aging veterans.  This annual event also serves as a qualifier for the National Senior Olympics, a community-based member of the United States Olympic Committee.

Each year in a different city, more than 500 veterans gather from all over the United States to test their mettle in competition at the nation’s largest annual sporting event for senior veterans.
