Registration is open for the 2015 Summer Iowa Games, powered by the Iowa Food & Family Project. With 63 sports to choose from, now is your chance to get involved in the Summer Iowa Games, and be one of 13,000 Iowans competing in your favorite sport.
Iowa’s premier multi-sports festival attracts participants from all of Iowa’s 99 counties. Although the city of Ames will host many of the sports throughout the month of July, overall, the 2015 Summer Iowa Games will be held in 18 different Iowa communities during the summer.
The majority of competitions will take place July 11 and 12, July 16-19 and July 24-26, with a few sports being held in June. New sports added to this year’s list include Shuffleboard and Tumbling. The Games has sports from A to Z, for athletes of all ages and abilities.
“The Iowa Games has grown tremendously over the years and we’re excited to announce that the 2015 Games will include 63 sports,” Chuck Long, CEO and Executive Director of the Iowa Sports Foundation, said. “With so many sports and their respective events to choose from, we invite athletes of all ages and abilities from across our great state to check out what we have to offer and join us for this year’s event. There’s something for everyone!”
The 2015 Summer Iowa Games will officially kickoff with the Athlete Jamboree at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 17, in parking lots S6 and S7, east of Jack Trice Stadium, followed by the Opening Ceremony at 7:45 p.m. inside Jack Trice Stadium. Both events are open to the public. Proceeds of the Opening Ceremony will benefit the Iowa Food Bank Association.
