Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association

2019 Great Lakes Games

Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association (GLASA) is hosting the 2019 Great Lakes Games the weekend of June 14 - 16, 2019 at Lake Forest High School (LFHS) and Niles West High School (see sign up for specific locations).  This three-day event  provides athletes at both the novice and elite level the opportunity to compete at a multi-sport event.  Many athletes will compete to qualify for the the Adaptive Sports USA Junior Nationals!  These amazing athletes will have the opportunity to compete in a variety of adaptive sports - Archery, Boccia, Powerlifting, Swimming, Track & Field, and Air Rifle (to be completed on Friday, May 31).

We will need the help of many volunteers to provide these athletes with an opportunity to compete in a well-run and memorable event.  Volunteers must be 14 years or older.  If your child is slightly younger and you would like him/her to accompany you, please contact Micaela directly for suggestions on appropriate events/shifts based on age.

Please share this amazing volunteer opportunity with your family, friends, and co-workers.  This is a great opportunity for corporate volunteerism, family bonding, and giving back to the community!

TO SIGN UP: Please scroll down to view all volunteer shifts available in real time.  Check all the shifts you are available and interested in helping with (please make sure you do not sign up for shifts that happen at the same time- you cannot be in two places at once).  Please consider volunteering for more than one shift!  The week of the event, everyone who has signed up will receive an email outlining the details of the events, where to check-in, what clothing to wear and any other pertinent information for volunteering.  The sign up will LOCK 2 days prior to your shift, if changes need to be made or you are no longer able to change them yourself, please contact Micaela ASAP at 847-989-7743 (call or text) or [email protected]. 
Notes: 
Please make sure to provide your cell phone number when asked for your phone- texting will be my main form of contact for last minute changes or cancelations.  You may not be notified in a timely manor if a cell phone number is not provided.  Please also indicate your corporate or school affiliation in the comments section if you are volunteering with a group or need volunteer confirmation for school.  If you have any difficulty signing up, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

Thank you for Making A Difference!
