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.
