About Us

Our Story

My name is Dean Jong. I am an East Lansing native and grew up playing soccer. I participated in the recreational programs before playing for East Lansing High School. I eventually played with the local premier club at the time, CA United. To this day, I am still playing as much as I can and will continue to do so for as long as possible.
Soccer is my biggest passion and I have been organizing pickup and teams for over a decade now. I have played in every league in the area and have developed most of my closest relationships through the game. From my experiences and those of my friends and teammates, I have sought to develop the kind of league that players actually want.
The GLOS staff is comprised completely of active players who are passionate about high quality soccer. We will all be working tirelessly to create the playing experience that we all want. All feedback with the staff will be heard, the quality of the fields will be consistently taken care of, referees will be licensed, and every part of the leagues will be looked after in an organized, professional manner.
Anyone can start up a league, but only those who truly understand the game can make it one worth playing in.
