SAN DIEGO (January 25, 2023) – The California Police Athletic Federation (CPAF), a non-profit organization committed to promoting sport and physical fitness among first responders, is pleased to announce that registration will open Mid-January for the 2023 US Police & Fire Championships. Happening in San Diego from Saturday, June 10 to Saturday, June 17, the games will feature a variety of sports including bench press, dodgeball, pickleball, baseball, bowling, golf, surfing, tennis, water polo, CrossFit®, and more.
“We are looking forward to our 56th season of the games,” says Larry Collins President of the California Police Athletic Federation. “Each year, the California Police Athletic Federation works to unite first responders and public safety personnel through encouraging health, wellness, and camaraderie. The US Police & Fire Championships is one of our favorite events and we are so excited to bring together first responders from across the nation for yet another championship in San Diego.”
The US Police & Fire Championships are an Olympic-style competition for first responders and public safety personnel across the United States. The annual games draw thousands of athletes from law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, custom and correctional officers, as well as full-time employees (active and retired) of any eligible agency or organization in the capacity of 9-1-1 dispatchers, detention-custodial officers, crime scene investigators, or lifeguards. Participating athletes from all departments get the opportunity to compete amongst their peers in a variety of Olympic-style games that offer the opportunity to celebrate the human spirit at its very best.
The US Police & Fire Championships are one of four events that the California Police Athletic Federation presents in addition to the bi-annual World Police & Fire Games, the First Responders Relay and the brand-new North American Fall Classic which debuted last year.
