The Senior Games will commence with a colorful opening ceremony and a pledge to the spirit of competition and friendship in which the games are based.

Senior Olympics Pledge - "As a Senior Olympian, I pledge myself to the spirit of the Olympics: the spirit of achievement, that I may reach my goals; the spirit of competition that I may win or lose with pride and honor; the spirit of friendship, that I may be a true friend to those around me."
