Going for the Gold – The Capital City Senior Games

August 14, 2019


I’m Coach Jim Sauls, former football coach for Leon School. And, I’m Rubia Byrd, the U-S-A Pickleball Association Ambassador. Last year, Rubia and I competed in the Capital City Senior Games right here in Tallahassee. We both won medals in our respective competitions and now we’re encouraging seniors all around our our beautiful city to join us! The Capital City Senior Games, which include a reception and Torch Run, will take place this March. The games are just one way the Tallahassee Senior Center helps us stay active and healthy. Competitions for the Senior Games are designed for all fitness levels. There’s something for everyone! Powerlifting is my personal favorite and Rubia’s favorite is pickleball, of course. We invite you to come out to senior games to cheer on our athletes. Seniors 50 years and older can participate in the Senior Games by signing up in person, online or through the mail. Visit Talgov.com/SeniorGames to find out more. We can all go for the gold. Even in our golden years.
