The 2022 Northern Virginia Senior Olympics will offer a record number of events for participants to enjoy - 77 individual events! These will be held at 25 venues throughout Northern Virginia from September 10 through 24.

NVSO began in 1982 with approximately 300 participants and has grown to nearly 900 (pre-Pandemic). According to Herb Levitan, NVSO Chair, “We’re expecting a large turnout this year since we had nearly 700 participants with half the number events last year.”

Please join us for the opening day ceremony on September 10 at 9:30 a.m. at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center, 3501 S. 2nd Street in Arlington. The public are invited to attend. The opening day ceremony will be followed by seven track events and one rowing ERG event for registered participants.
