Michigan Senior Olympics 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.

Not an athlete, they still 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 18, 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.

Another highlight of the Winter Games is the annual Ice Hockey Tournament held at the Troy Sports Center on February 7-12 from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. each day. The Michigan Senior Olympics are proud to announce the addition of a Men’s Ages 70+ division.
