Promoting Oregon’s Athletes and Sport
When he was in office, Gov. Vic Atiyeh understood the many benefits sports bring to society and created a group of dedicated volunteers to promote healthy lifestyles and get Oregonians to be more active – the Oregon Governor’s Council on Health, Fitness and Sports. When he left office, those volunteers formed the non-profit Oregon Amateur Sports Foundation (OASF) to carry on the great work of the Council. The State Games of Oregon was the culmination of work of the Council and the first major program of the OASF. Since 1986, the State Games have provided hundreds of thousands of athletes, of all ages and all abilities, the opportunity to get involved and get moving. Our goal is to continue to offer quality Olympic-style sports events, at an affordable price, for all Oregonians.
We have designated 2018 as the Year of the Athlete! Through the 30+ years of the State Games, we have had tens of thousands of athletes come through, each with their own unique story. We want to share those stories and create a community that knows one another, inspires one another and most importantly, supports one another. Some of our athletes are just starting a sport and are looking for tips. Others have been competing their whole lives and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Still others are just coming back to a sport after a hiatus. But they all have one thing in common – they come to the State Games to participate, to do their best and to have fun. No matter how long you’ve been competing or why you compete, we promise to provide a fun, friendly and quality competition. So get out there and Find Your Sport.
