What is this?

The Super Senior Series is a fun competition for the 55 and older members of the Akron Area YMCA.  It is free, thanks to our generous sponsors Summa Care and Summa Health.  Membership branches ( Firestone Park, Green, Kohl Family, Lake Anna, Riverfront and Wadsworth) will bring individuals and teams to represent their location in the areas of swimming, walking/running, Pickleball, corn hole, Trivial Pursuit mastery and group dancing (line dancing or Zumba Gold).

Specific Categories include:

Mixed Doubles Pickleball
200-Yard Swim
200-Yard Swim Relay
1-Mile Walk/Run
1-Mile Walk/Run Relay
Cornhole (2-person team)
Group Dancing Competition (Line Dancing or ZUMBA Gold)

What are the Rules?

As with any competition, there are specific rules to the games.  In March 2019, the Super Senior Series committee, put together a list.  Download a copy.

If there is something that is unclear, ask the Fitness Director at your branch.  He/she is an official member of the Super Senior Series committee and will be able to answer your questions and address your concerns.


It's never to early to start practicing.
Check at your branch to find out the specific locations for the competition categories that pique your interest.  The schedules will vary from branch to branch, especially this summer as swimming pool maintenance will take place.  In most cases, the practices will be led by someone from the branch fitness department.
