Miranda, Tom, and the entire Greater Lansing Sports Authority team were outstanding for the second year in a row. The micro website is a great help, and the windwavers, banners, and "extras" offered to our coaches and athletes were excellent and well received! They are #1 in my book. Tom and Miranda always greet me with a smile and enthusiasm! 06/2019 - Kim Spalsbury, Midwest Meet of Champions

There are times when it feels like the GLSA handles everything other than calling balls and strikes for us. Truly a full-service outfit; the GLSA staff greets patrons on their way into the park and on the way out. They work with hotel properties to secure the best rates for our teams and fans. They supply us with terrific volunteer staff who are always smiling, rain or shine. We consider ourselves lucky to have such a solid partner for our mid-Michigan tournament events. 06/05/2019 - Andi, Michigan High School Athletic Association

GLSA made beautiful welcome baskets for all our head coaches. It was such a nice and unexpected touch that really helped make each team feel special.

GLSA helped us with so many facets of our event hotel reservation blocks, press releases, Snap-Chat filters, printed advertising, local tourism and hospitality, gifts for officials, a website, social media shout-outs and much more. They helped us brainstorm issues and come up with options for solutions and were super responsive and always willing to help solve problems whenever they could.
