Delaware Senior Olympics Annual Games
Since 1993, the Delaware Senior Olympics has been a beacon of sportsmanship and fitness for seniors, hosting annual state games from August to October. Starting in 1992 with a modest but enthusiastic group of 160 athletes in 11 sports, DSO has witnessed incredible growth. In our recent qualifying year, over 1,200 athletes competed in 30 sports, showcasing the dedication and skill of more than 1,300 members.
