write up 2In case you've been hanging out under a rock for the last decade the Greater Lansing community, and the driving force for sports tourism in the area the Greater Lansing Sports Authority, are growing like crazy. Sports events (over 100 a year) and sports-related visitors (hundreds of thousands) are coming to the region every year to play the games they love. Road races, soccer tournaments, baseball, bowling, lacrosse, wrestling, gymnastics - the list goes on and on. Why is this happening? There are a few key reasons.

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!
