The Maryland Senior Olympics is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization for proactive residents aged 50 and above. Since 1980, the Maryland games have provided great competition and camaraderie for mature adults as many have advanced to the National Senior Games and returned as U.S. champions.

Camaraderie is just as important as competition at the Maryland Senior Olympics.Each year, MSO offers around 100 events through two dozen sports in age groups of 50-54, 55-59, 60-64 and so forth. The top three finishers in each event win medals; every odd year is a qualifying year for the National Senior Games. The top four in each state-level event qualifies for nationals.

But you don't have to be a world-class athlete to compete in the Maryland Senior Olympics. Far from it. Our motto is, “To Participate Is to Win!” Many of our athletes compete because of the fellowship and friendships. Many compete because of the personal challenge. And yes, many compete because they are still competitive even in their advancing years.

We welcome all of you!

The games are conducted in partnership with Montgomery County Recreation, Howard County Recreation and Parks, Montgomery Parks, and Prince George's County Recreation and Parks. Many of our events are held in Montgomery County but we also have events in Prince George's, Howard, Anne Arundel and Frederick counties. For the full lineup of MSO sports and activities, visit our Events page.

Meanwhile, we encourage your input and advice toward the future of the organization. The Maryland Senior Olympics are your games. We want to hear from you. If you have suggestions, wish to volunteer, have photos or content to contribute to our website or social media, or just want to say hello, please give us a shout.

As you can see, we're very excited the role, mission and history of the Maryland Senior Olympics. Please share that enthusiasm with us!
