Thirty states throughout the nation currently conduct State Games events. Modeled after the Olympic Games, these events are designed to provide amateur athletes with the incentive to train and participate in a statewide multi-sport event annually. Each State Games program is organized by an independent organization within that state and are members of the National Congress of State Games (NCSG).
In 2004, the State Games of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and North Carolina came together to discuss the concept of a regional multi-sport festival. Each state recognized the importance and value of providing athletes with the opportunity to advance to another level and showcase their talents on a regional playing field. From this discussion, the Southeast Sports Festival was born.
The 2010 Southeast Sports Festival offers Individuals and teams that participate in their local 2010 National Congress of State Games sport event (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia) the opportunity to compete against State Games participants from those states. The following states have also been granted provisional permission to participate in the 2010 Southeast Sports Festival (Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia).
By participating in your local 2010 State Games sport event, individuals and teams are eligible to compete in the 2010 Southeast Sports Festival. All participants are eligible regardless of their performance or placement at their local State Games sport event.
Athletes from states that currently do not offer one of the sports being offered at the 2010 Southeast Sports Festival have been granted permission to enter the 2010 Southeast Sports Festival.
