3 Ways to Keep the Olympic Spirit Alive in Your Community

The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics concluded this Sunday, and if your community has been closely following the exciting events, you may feel some post-Olympic let-down. But not to worry…here are a few suggestions to keep the competitive spirit burning bright amongst your residents and team members.

Winter OlympicsCheer on fellow seniors at the California Senior Games

If you’re missing your daily dose of downhill skiing, you can get your fill next month at the upcoming Fourth Annual California Senior Olympic Winter Games at Bear Valley, CA. And there’s plenty more events to come this year, from Sonoma to San Diego. Check the California Senior Games calendar to find an event near you.

Join the National Senior Wii Bowlers League

A team from Vintage Cerritos was named California’s Wii Bowling State Champions in 2012. Think you’ve got what it takes to be a champion, too? Register your team of four and learn more about being a part of the league. Or, check the list of current teams…your community may already be competing!

Host a Screening of Age of Champions

This award-winning documentary is the uplifting story of four Senior Olympians and their quest for the gold. Equal parts humor and inspiration, it has already been shown across the state in many CALA communities. Learn how you can host a screening, and keep the Olympic spirit alive in your community.

Do you have any former Olympians or senior Olympians at your community? What are your favorite winter sports?
