The 2011 World Summer Games will be held in Athens, Greece, and will feature a menu of summer sports. Team USA will consist of about 300 athletes from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Missouri’s seven athlete delegates will compete in aquatics, bocce, golf and tennis. Team USA will depart for Greece on June 15, 2011, and will return to the United States on July 6, 2011. The average cost to send a delegate to World Games is $5,000. Donations will help cover expenses for food, travel, housing, uniforms, training, equipment and other costs pertaining to the World Games.
