Michigan Senior Olympics (MSO) is a non-profit organization that promotes healthy lifestyles by organizing state games, sports competitions, health, fitness, nutrition, and wellness programs for the over 50 population in the State of Michigan. MSO looks forward to an exciting time of competition and camaraderie. Many people participate for the competition while others play to have fun.

If you are not an athlete, we encourage you to check out the winter events. They are all free to watch (with the exception of the Dancesport event). The DanceSport Competition is held at the Royal Park Hotel on February 16, 2018 where professional and amateur dancers compete on the dance floor. The evening will include a cash bar, buffet dinner, raffles, and social dancing. Please contact the MSO office at 248-608-0252 to purchase tickets or for more information.

Some new additions to this year’s Winter Games include Cornhole & Bowling. The Cornhole event is a “just for fun” event that will include both seasoned Cornhole players and those that are just trying it for the first time. Teams of two will compete for the chance to win a medal. If you don’t have a partner but are interested in playing, please contact the MSO Office. The Bowling event is also a new addition to the Winter Games. We offer singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. Come and join the fun.

Another highlight of the Winter Games is the 2nd Annual Indoor Track & Field event held at the Macomb Community College in Warren. This event will include powerwalk, racewalk, 60M run and hurdles, 200M, 400M, 800M, 1500M, long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault, and shot put. Don’t wait to sign up for this great event.
