ALBERTA 55+ SUMMER GAMES

History

What is Alberta 55 Plus?

Alberta 55 plus represents the heart of mature Albertans. It stands for the idea of a fuller, healthier, more vital future; for the straightforward steps that can be taken towards that future. We promote participation and action and have generated a unique spirit of cooperation across the province.


The association believes that sport and recreation development for mature adults is a provincial issue. It has a direct bearing on the quality of life in this province and it can become a way of life for the individual and the province as a whole. That is the ideal. We’re working to make it a reality.



WHO WE AREAlberta 55 plus was incorporated under the name of ASCSRA (Alberta Senior Citizens Sport and Recreation Association) as a volunteer action group on January 31st, 1980 to:

  • promote sport and recreation development for Albertans 55+ across the province,
  • to act as the provincial voice of mature adults in the Alberta 55 Plus Games; and promote future Alberta 55 Plus Games.
  • A Board of Directors, with an executive and representatives from 8 zones across the province, is established. Consultants from Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks & Wildlife Foundation provide assistance and support.
  • Areas of financial assistance include Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks & Wildlife Foundation, donations, and our membership fees.

Each of our 8 zones must have 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.
