About GLSA

GLSA Mission Statement: 
Our mission is to be the leading voice of sports tourism in the Greater Lansing area and to promote economic growth by attracting a diverse range of sporting events to the region. We will strive to enhance the quality of life for area residents through the development of local sports and fitness programs for all ages, with a special emphasis on the underserved population; and to support the continued development and maintenance of safe, high-quality athletic facilities.

Spreading the word about what makes Greater Lansing GREAT!
The Greater Lansing Sports Authority is a sub-division of the Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau. While both organizations are destination marketing organizations committed to increasing visitation to the Greater Lansing Michigan region, the GLSA is focused on amateur athletic competitions and events. The GLSA and the Team Lansing Foundation are also committed to regional destination development pertaining to development and upkeep of play and athletic facilities in the area. Everything from removable fences for baseball facilities to barrier free play structures for children with physical disabilities, the GLSA is dedicated to making michigan's Capital City a great place to play.
