GLASRA - Greater Lansing Area Soccer Referees Association

​Welcome to the GLASRA, Greater Lansing Area Soccer Referees Association, website.

We are excited to bring more info to you as members and organizations which we service. Please take a look around. Hopefully, you'll find what you need. If not, please feel free to make suggestions for new additions. We aim to serve, so this will be a place we can all contribute and connect.

New Logo

Congratulations to Justin Troisi who entered and won our new logo design contest last fall. The new logo is ready in black and white rendering. Colored flags may be used as we refine the design for specific uses.


Be sure to check out our blog. We post upcoming events, recognitions, reminders and more here. You can also subscribe to recieve notifications when new items are posted.


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.

Constitution and By-Laws

GLASRA Constitution and By-Laws were approved by the board and membership at the Annual General Meeting on January 10, 2015.
