Calgary 55 Plus 2017 Provincial Championships

The Calgary 55 Plus Provincial Championships are being hosted by Calgary in lieu of the Alberta Senior Master Games. Alberta Sport Connection had planned to sponsor the Alberta Senior Master Games in Fort McMurray this year. However, the negative impact of the forest fire that raged through the City forced the Games to be cancelled in 2017.

The Calgary 55 Plus Provincial Championships will take place in Calgary on August 10 & 11, 2017. All Games will be completed over two days, except for Hockey and Slo-Pitch. The medal games in Hockey and Slo-Pitch will be played on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The Slo-Pitch games will be played in Strathmore.
