Sporting events

We love our sport in the Great Lakes. With strong connection to the outdoors it is no wonder that there are numerous sporting events and activities outside. The Great Lakes is a popular designation for Regional, State and National Championships for a variety of sports.

Whether you want to watch or play, indoors or outdoors, physical or passive there is a sporting event for you in the Great Lakes. There is also a vibrant volunteer program for those who want to be a part of the action. Visitors are always welcome to be involved.
