There have been several recognitions, selections, and accomplishments in the last year. To name a few, one of our members was National Female Youth Referee of the Year 2013, others were invited or sent to state and national events. To find out more, follow our News & Blog links.
At the Annual General Meeting held January 18, 2014, there were requests for more easily accessible information regarding league rules. We heard you and incorporated a new link that should make those simpler to find. We had some other changes in mind too.
How about a Blog where we can update you on GLASRA happenings, or Facebook and Twitter links? Yup, we're working on those too. Stay tuned and check back often as we work to make this a real member's resource.
Serving the Greater Lansing Area Since 1977
GLASRA, Greater Lansing Area Soccer Referee Association, was established in 1977. Many referees have come and gone through the years. Some of the earliest members are still around. We thank them for their dedication to the organization.
Today we have over 200 members of all ages ranging from 13 - well, let's not say...
We serve our members assigning, training, and support needs. We assign for all USSF leagues/clubs in the Greater Lansing area, as well as all MHSAA High Schools as far as Ionia to Dansville. We even assign for non-MHSAA affiliated schools. We serve the local Mid Michigan Men's Soccer League, MMMSL, as well as the Lansing Area Women's Soccer League, LAWS.
