More than 10,000 athletes over the age of 50 are expected to compete in the 2019 National Senior Games in Albuquerque next June. Held every other year since 1987, NSG is the largest multi-sport qualified competition event in the world for men and women ages 50 and older. An athlete must be at least 50 years of age by December 31, 2020 to qualify for the 2021 National Senior Games. An athlete MUST qualify for the National Senior Games in even numbered years at an NSGA sanctioned senior games.

Senior Games have age groups that are set in five year increments for men and women; ages 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, all the way.
