Sports for Active Seniors is an organization based in Madison, Wisconsin for people 55 and up who want to participate in active, noncompetitive sports in a social setting.

It is our history, our desire, and hopefully our practice, to make newcomers feel welcome.  You will not be a stranger very long.

We have about 150 members and 10 sports.  Each sport is organized by the participants, with volunteer leaders.

People over the age of 55 interested in actively participating in sports are invited to join us.

Try us out!  Join if you like what you see!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!! More volunteers mean more fun, more ideas and less work for everyone.

Paul Reese is stepping down from the Archives position. There are 3 positions open for board of directors:

1.) ARCHIVES: Collects, organizes, references as needed and arranges for storage of necessary records and other materials to maintain a history of the Society, including but not limited to Minutes of Board and General meetings, newsletters, and yearly Registry of Members.
2.) PROGRAMS: Provides sports or exercise-related programs at quarterly meetings plus program/entertainment/activity at special events.
3.) PUBLICITY: Provides publicity for sports activities, meetings and special events. Sends press releases to appropriate newspapers and TV/Radio stations. Current board are willing to maintain their current positions. But there is always room for more help. Very few meetings and time are involved.. Much of our communication is by email. Contact Bob at 244-5582 or bandalaro@chartermi.net

ACTIVITY LEADERS are needed also in: Camping – Reservations will be made for next year at Firefly Lake near Woodruff for mid to late July but a Camping leader will be needed to handle the actual campout. Downhill Skiing, Outdoor walking, Mall walking, Ice Skating, Bocce and what-ever-your sporting interests are need leaders. Please consider scheduling them and notifying Yvonne at yvonnesor@gmail.com to put the word out to the membership by newsletter, web site, and email.

Out of town activities been very successful this year. In an effort to make it easier to car pool, find over night accommodations, and roommates, it is recommended that meetings for interested individuals be held in advance.
