REGISTRATION

Register yourself or your team, make payments, update your personal information, and your emergency contact details. To get started you will first need to create a new login, then you will just be a few steps away from completing the registration process. If you've already created a new registration for this year, you can return to that registration by logging in to that exiting registration. Previous years' logins (for any state games or your National Senior Games login) can not be used to register for the current year's state senior games

Please review the Schedule page on our website for dates and locations of events, and the individual Sports information pages for much more information on each sport.

You will need an email address to create a registration. If you do not have an email address you can obtain a free Gmail account or a free AOL email account or a free Outlook email account or a free Yahoo email account.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: While you can use the same email address to sign in to NSGA FuseSPORT registration, any state's FuseSPORT registration, they each must use a different password. That also means that two people can register for the same state or national games using the same email, but again each must use a different password. One fuseSPORT account can NOT be used for multiple states using the fuseSPORT software and the National Senior Games.

You can register as an athlete, volunteer, or both. Athletes will be charged a registration fee and will receive a tee shirt at their first event. Volunteers are not charged a registration fee and will also receive a special volunteer tee shirt. We are now using SignUpGenius for Volunteer registrations. Those links will appear here shortly, by mid-May.

Athletes must provide their own partner to participate in any partner sport.

At the end of the registration, you should receive two e-mails. One will be a receipt and the other a confirmation e-mail. Please check you spam or junk folder if you do not receive these e-mails within 24 hours.

Once you have registered, you will be able to login in again to: review your registration, sports, or events; add additional sports and/or events; change any of your information or partner names; and remove sports and/or events that you will not be participating in. For this login to your existing registration, you'll need your registration confirmation number.

If you cannot participate in the New Hampshire Senior Games, please contact us. see the REFUNDS section below, for more details.

ELIGIBILITY

An athlete’s competition age is based on his or her age on December 31st of the  year in which they compete. Please see minimum age for each sport in our state games, in the AGE CATEGORIES section below.

Only athletes age 50+ may qualify for the National Senior Games.  Last year's games served as the qualifier for the 2023 National Senior Games to be held July 7th - 18th in Pittsburg, PA.

The first four place finishers in each age group of all individual sports (except Tennis, which is only top three) qualify for the National Games. Since New Hampshire is an Open State allowing out of state athletes to participate, in addition to the top four place, the top four in-state athletes also qualify, even if they were not in the top four overall places.

For team sport Basketball, the top three places in each age group qualify.
