Qualifying for the Florida State Senior Games
Athletes must qualify at the Florida Senior Games. Florida Sports Foundation (FSF) determines who qualifies based upon the rules, regulations and standards set forth by the National Senior Game Association (NSGA). Each event allows for a specific number of qualified athletes. If out-of-state residents qualify, they will not take away a qualifying spot from a state resident. FSF may qualify the number of state residents specified for each event in addition to the out-of-state athletes. All doubles teams made up of one in-state and one out-of-state athlete will be designated as an out-of-state team.
Competition must take place to determine qualification. If there is only one individual entered in an age group, that athlete must enter and complete the event in order to be given the gold medal and to qualify for the National Senior Games. Athletes should be placed in the age division nearest their own in order to compete. Competition for the athletes in this "closest age division" shall be considered exhibition. If there is only one team entered in an age division, that team should be given exhibition opportunities with the closest age division. No team shall be qualified without participating in a qualifying game. The NSGA shall determine whether an athlete has met the qualifying criteria for "limited" sports events.
Any individual who participates and places in the top 5 of their age group for their respective event will qualify for the Florida Senior Games.
This Local Senior Games is sanctioned by the Florida Sports Foundation and a qualifier for the Florida Senior Games State Championships.
