From time to time we at the Greater Lansing Sports Authority are proud to step to the side and let one of our great sports partners jump up on the soap box and share some information with our audience. This situation is no exception. Please welcome Kristin Porter, Sport Operations Assistant-Men's Basketball and Director of Females in Athletic Business (FAB).

Everyone knows the GLSA is always offering volunteer opportunities, but those that help with a particular event coming up will get some money in their pocket. This Memorial Day weekend is the USTA Memorial Tennis Tournament at Court One Athletic Club. Event organizers are paying individuals 18-years-old and up for all weekend commitments. All those interested must email Shelly Bugg @ Bugg.shelly@courtone.com. Another huge community event with a big need for help is going on May 31st and that is the Hawk Island Triathlon. While not a paid opportunity, this is a great way to support your community, get service hours and just be a part of something special. Contact the Greater Lansing Sports Authority for additional details at 377-1411. As a GLSA volunteer sometimes you'll make money, but you'll ALWAYS make memories and a real difference! Get involved!

There are some expected norms in sports. A football game has four quarters, a baseball game has nine innings and golf courses are laid out in 9 hole increments; 9, 18, 27, 36 and so on. Well... not always. Sometimes when the hood is up for a season as the course gets a major overhaul, you get a season where you have 9 holes on the back nine and just 6 holes on the front. Yes, it’s a little goofy, but be patient. These are necessary growing pains as one of the best municipal golf courses in the state gets some much needed, and highly anticipated, upgrades.
