Generation Games Salem

The Salem Generation Games for all ages at Salem State University in Salem Massachusetts

The Generation Games is about people of all ages having a good time playing sports and games together. Playing together has been found to not only promote a healthier society but also helps create understanding. Play is a great equalizer - it doesn’t matter who or what you are, where you come from, or how much money you make. It just matters that you are having fun and learning from the experience. The motto of the Generation Games is “by generations, for generations.” It has a focus on recreation and sport for all, health, education and social issues. Any city can make use of the creative concept: it is shared with cities worldwide. The Generation Games is all about community engagement and international connectivity.
