The Ohio Police and Fire Games are coming to Oberlin June 9-14, and registration is now open. The Oberlin Police Department will serve as Host Agency with Lt. Kevin Scalli acting as Overall Coordinator, assisted by Craig Camp of the Elyria Fire Department.
2013 marks the 36th consecutive year this Olympic-style event will be held in Ohio. The Games offer more than 40 events to the first responders who will come not only from Ohio, but from across the United States and Canada as well. This year’s events will include various shooting events for hand guns and long guns, softball, soccer, basketball, cycling, running events, golf, fishing, track & field events, swimming, jui jitsu, weight lifting and more. Host Agency Oberlin Police Department has added a Triathlon and a Corn Hole Tournament to the line-up.
The purpose of these games is to support the physical and mental fitness of Ohio’s active and retired law enforcement, firefighter, and military personnel by offering a variety of events in which these participants can compete in an environment of good sport and camaraderie. Proceeds generated from this week-long event are channeled to several charities, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House, Oberlin Police Department’s selected charity, and others supported by events associated with the Games.
All first responders – including out of state and international competitors – with skill levels ranging from rookie to expert are invited to participate in the Games. Friends and families are encouraged to attend to support their favorite athletes as most activities are open to the public to watch free of charge. A complimentary program book will be available at the Command Post – The Oberlin Inn – as well as at various event locations in the greater Oberlin area. We again will collect pull tabs at the Command Post for the Ronald McDonald House (Cleveland’s this year). Silent Auction and Raffle items will be posted at the website and on display at the Command Post; remember that these events support our charities!
A complete listing of all events and their descriptions, along with schedules, eligibility information, on-line or mail-in registration forms, and contact and sponsorship information, and more can be found at the official website: www.TheOhioPoliceandFireGames.org.
