Spring Community Service

Cap City Athletic 1847 is proud to continue with our goals to provide opportunities to develop our players on more than just the soccer field.  This Spring we be working with in our community and provide service to the City of Lansing and the Lansing River Trail.  All teams will be asked to participate in the clean up of the Lansing River Trail.  We hope that many parents are able to participate as well.  We hope that this small act of service will continue to build the character of our players, families, and organization.  

The Lansing River Trail now stretches all the way from Waverly Road to Old Town. You can also catch it from Potter Park into MSU.  Altogether, over 20 miles of paved trail pass through numerous parks and natural areas, as well as Downtown Lansing.  You can learn more about the Lansing River Trail at
