The 2018 Winter Olympics have taken over the world with its colorful characters and fantastic feats of athleticism. It's an awesome time to feel part of this global community but more than that it’s so impressive to see these incredible athletes perform. The passion, excellence and dedication these men and women pour into their events is at the heart of what makes sports so great.

NUWAY Wrestling, America's Premier Wrestling Association, is coming back to the Lansing Center for some of the best youth wrestling competition in the country. The NUWAY Wrestling ChristmaSparty (a youth wrestling tournament featuring over 1,200 wrestlers from across the country) will bring the Lansing Center to a fever-pitch December 16-17, 2017.

The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) is proud to acknowledge local individuals who assist the GLCVB in securing meetings, conventions or other events for the Greater Lansing region. The name and theme of the special program is: Greater Lansing Community Champions; Hometown Meetings Make Good Cents!

LANSING, Mich.—The Greater Lansing Sports Authority (GLSA) and the Capital City Crushers Women’s Disc Golf Club are pleased to announce that the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) has selected Greater Lansing, Michigan as a site for the 2018 PDGA United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships. Slated for September 20-23 the event will be held at Burchfield Park in Holt and will welcome 70-125 athletes from across the nation for three days of top competition.

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!
