Greater New Orleans Senior Olympics

GNOSO's goal in creating this web-site was created to provide all the latest information pertaining to the Senior Games in one location.  Here you will find 1) an easy-to-understand Calendar of Events, 2) a page for each Event, 3) LSOG Rules for Competition, 4) a compilation of all the Coordinators, and 5) all past Results. The site will remain up-to-date ONLY wiith the full cooperation of ALL Coordinators and the GNOSO Administration, who PROVIDE NOTIFICATION to the Web-master with all changes as the occur.  ONLY THEN can any change to the schedule, venues or personnel contacts be posted to the web-site as soon as the Web-master is notified.  Based SOLELY upon keeping that information up-to-date we will then be able to say in 2016, "Welcome to the world of information availability!"  Happy Browsing!

Viewing "Past Year" Results - New Approach

Starting in 2016, Individual Web Event Pages not link to "2015 Results" for past year results.  Instead, results from ANY previous year may be accessed from the Menu tab "Results - All."  Individual Web Event pages now link to CURRENT YEAR Results only - as results are made available, and to current photos, if any.

Registration for the Games

Preferred Method: On-Line Registration

  • Athletes are encouraged to register "On-Line" for the 2016 Games.  Use the "Register Now" button provided on this page, each Event Page - and most other web pages.
  • When Registration opens and we are ready to start accepting 2016 registrations "Register Now" button will take the user to the ActiveNet page for GNOSO Registration.
  • As the games progress, the ActiveNet page for GNOSO Registration will show ONLY those events for which registration is available.
  • As the registration deadline has passes for any Event, the Event will no longer show on the ActiveNet page for GNOSO Registration.
  • Users who Register On-Line will receive immediate confirmation of their Registration, and a receipt for any payment.

Less Preferred Method: Paper Entry Form Mail-in

Athletes/Participants who are unable to use On-Line Registration may use the less-preferred Paper Entry Form Mail-in. To use the Mail-in Registration.

  • previous-year participants will receive a Paper form via US Mail
  • or, a copy of the form may  be "downloaded" from this site (see LINK at left - under the Menu - to "download" the form)
  • or, the form may be obtained by calling contacting Ann Hassenboehler and asking her to mail you a Paper Registration Form
  • Athletes/entrants who register via the Paper Entry form will not receive confirmation nor a receipt for payment

Note: All Registration information, including that obtained from Paper forms, will be entered into the ONE database that ActiveNetwork maintains on-line for GNOSO. 


CLICK THE PURPLE "Register Now" BUTTON AT LEFT TO REGISTER FOR GNOSO 2016 EVENTS "ON-LINE" (you will be taken to the ActiveNetwork Secure web-site to complete your registration).
