ST. GEORGE — Team Registration is now open for Huntsman World Senior Games 2015 team sports. Managers for basketball, softball, volleyball and soccer can reserve their team spaces in the largest annual multisport event in the world for athletes 50 and over.
“We’ve had a tradition for the past several years to open team registration on January 1,” Senior Games CEO Kyle M Case said. “It’s a quick turnaround for us, but there are teams every year that wait up late on New Year’s Eve to register.”
Team registration reserves a place in the tournament for that team and provides a unique team number for mangers to distribute among their team members. On March 1, team members, along with all individual sport competitors can register as athletes. Those wishing to compete on a team will need to enter the unique team number in order to be tied to that team.
The registration deadline for both teams and individual athletes is Sept. 1.
“We anticipate hitting our participation cap for both softball and volleyball, so managers won’t want to delay their registration,” said Rosey Rosander, the Director of Sports for the Games.
The Huntsman World Senior Games takes place each October in St. George, and offers 27 different sports for athletes of all skill levels. In 2014 the Games hosted 10,856 athletes.
