Who Are We?

The Northwest Senior Games (NWSG) is an incorporated non-profit organization created to promote health, fitness, and a positive image of persons age 50 and better through participation, competition, education and social engagement.

The purpose of this partnership is to provide the opportunity to participate in social, competitive, recreational, and athletic events that:

  • Creates an awareness of the abilities and capabilities of people age 50+.
  • Helps to maintain and improve health and wellness.
  • Promotes an interest in lifetime sports, recreation and physical activity.

A Brief History

In partnership with the Seattle's Lifelong Recreation Programs and other Parks and Recreation Departments including Mercer Island, Kirkland, Redmond, Shoreline, and Bellevue, the Northwest Senior Games began as the Greater Seattle Senior Games in 1998 starting with eight sports with a festival weekend format. The games have now grown to more than twelve sports and are becoming a year long program of events and activities. More than 500 senior athletes competed in 2007 and we have instituted the Phil Flash Inspiration Award recognizing one athlete who depicts the passion for competition and sportsmanship while providing an example demonstrating that age does not stop determination and the importance of staying active.
