Abstract: According to the changing and trend of the numbers of Chinese elderly sports policies issued each year, coupled with the characteristics of Chinese elderly sports policy establishment subjects, policy contents and social sup-port subjects in different periods, the authors divided the course of development of Chinese elderly sports policies into such 4 stages as policy initiation, policy exploration, policy development and policy deepening. The main characteris-tics of evaluation of Chinese elderly sports policies are embodied in such 3 aspects as constant expansion of the scope of establishment subjects, more specific policy contents, and ever increasingly diversified social support subjects, however, there are still such problems as insufficient linking between various policy establishment subjects, inadequate social participation in the process of policy establishment, lack of connection between policy contents, not high enough operability of policy contents, the policies having difficulty to arouse the enthusiasm of various social support subjects, and such. The authors put forward the following proposals: strengthen trans-department multi-area cooperation, expand the channels for social participation and elderly sports policy establishment; refine policy contents, enhance policy quality and operability; innovate on policy stimulation mechanism, encourage various social support subjects to ac-tively participate in elderly sports undertaking; policy establishment should face the future and plan ahead; and such.
