Maybe you've heard about Michigan State's basketball teams this year?
Tom Izzo's squad is a national title favorite and the Spartans are led by Miles Bridges, the consensus player of year in the Big Ten and the country.
This summer, three Lansing-area public parks became testing grounds for Sports Bin, a new local program that encourages physical activity and team sports by providing free sports gear onsite.
Homecoming. The time of year where students, alumni, adults, and children all come together for one purpose: to share their Spartan pride. The city of East Lansing bleeds green through the week as fellow Spartans, new comers and visitors rejoice in the Homecoming festivities.
It's an exciting time of year, and every sports fan who bleeds green or wears blue is wringing his or her hands in fevered anticipation. It's rivalry week and that means it's MSU versus Michigan on the grid iron.
It’s easy to see how the economy benefits when a large sports event is held in a community. Athletes, family, friends and spectators converge on the host-city with a long list of consumer needs including lodging, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, fuel and on and on.
Finding a place to play in the Greater Lansing area is a breeze, regardless of where your competitive spirit lands and no matter what playing surface you demand.
Basketball or badminton? We've got that.
Cheerleading and Cup-Stacking? No problem.
Dance? You bet.
The Greater Lansing Sports Authority has been going strong for over ten years, and in that time, they have helped to bring literally dozens of different types of sports to the community at large.

Some things are just made for summertime. Hot sunny weather, basketballs on blacktop and the areas biggest hoop enthusiasts, for example.

So many different ways to enjoy this big summer tournament. Want to play? Get registered! Want to volunteer? They still need valuable volunteers. Just a hoop-loving spectator this year? Grab a seat because there is not only great tournament play, but a star-studded celebrity game to look forward to as well.
