LIFELONG FITNESS THROUGH ACTIVE LIVING
Established in 1980, Alberta 55 plus is a not for profit, volunteer driven group of people. We help mature Albertans enjoy a healthy, vital future through active lifestyle choices. We promote sports and recreation development for all Albertans 55 years of age and older.Our membership includes Albertans from eight different zones of the province. Collectively, we support the Alberta 55 plus Summer/Winter Games and the Canada 55 plus Games.
Alberta 55 plus Canada Games 2020 Participants
After a conference call Tuesday, March 24th, the decision was made by the Kamloops 2020 Canada Games 55 + Committee and the Canada Senior Games Association to postpone the Canada 55 + 2020 Games until Summer of 2021 in Kamloops. Date to be determined at a later date.
I am sure everyone understands with the Coronavirus as it stands now, we need to put the safety and well-being of our participants first.
There will be more information in the next ten days to two weeks after the Alberta 55 plus Executive can arrange a meeting.
For those of you that have not yet sent your registration and fees in, please do not do so. For those of you that have already registered and your cheques have been deposited, there will be refunds coming in the near future. This will be a huge task so please be patient.
This is all the information I have at this time, so I ask, please do not text or email me at this time, unless it is extremely urgent. I will be in touch when I have more information.
Thank you everyone. Until next time, keep yourself healthy and safe.
We divide the province into 8 zones to provide our members with better service.
Each of our 8 zones has an executive and board elected or appointed from established areas in the zone.
Through these zone boards, local needs are identified and addressed by the Provincial Association of Alberta 55 plus.
Note sure which zone represents your area?
