Cornhusker State Games Entry Reminder

Track & Field Director Morrison to be Memorialized

by Family Relay Award


Lincoln, NE (March 23, 2018) – Nebraska Sports Council officials issued a reminder to register for the 2018 Cornhusker State Games(CSG) on or before March 29 to avoid an entry fee increase. 

“This is a great time, especially for coaches and youth team parents, to get organized for the summer. The State Games offer fun, friendly but competitive action in all sports. It’s a great way to stay sharp in the off-season without any pressure. Of course, with 68 sports there are opportunities for everyone—not just team-sport athletes—regardless of age or ability,” said Executive Director Dave Mlnarik 

Most of the events will take place from July 20-29, and officials expect more than 11,000 participants this year. All registered participants receive a shirt and pass to the Opening Ceremonies and the pre-show Sports Fest meal with their paid entry fee.  Registration and information are available at CornhuskerStateGames.com.
