Local Sports Journal

The Local Sports Journal is proud to announce a new partnership with Sport Clips Haircuts, 5791 Harvey.

Sport Clips and the LSJ are teaming up to not only provide quality haircuts, but some quality football coverage of each of the area’s high school football teams.

LSJ writers are putting the finishing touches on a 24-page special section that will be available for sale on Saturday morning.

However, to celebrate the partnership, Sport Clips is offering a free football section to anyone who purchases an MVP Haircut Aug. 19-24. The offer is good only at the Muskegon location.

“Sport Clips Haircuts is excited about our new partnership with LSJ and the opportunity to help bring a new level of sports coverage to the lakeshore,” Sport Clips owner Stacey Patulski said.

The special section will be available at Sport Clips as well as a number of other businesses throughout the area.

Plus, on Monday night, LSJ writers will be joining Sport Clips staff at Fruitport High School for its annual Blue and White Night, which begins at 5 p.m.

“My motivation to join the team of LSJ sponsors was further driven by their mission of providing a new level of youth sports coverage to the Lakeshore which also complements our commitment to supporting local youth athletics,” Patulski said. “I think back to my days of participating in youth athletics and how exciting it was to see an article about my team in print.  Hundreds of local kids that will have the opportunity because of the LSJ and I’m proud to have Sport Clips play a little part in making those exciting opportunities possible.”

“Forming a partnership with Sport Clips was real easy for us,” LSJ co-publisher Ron Rop said. “They have taken an active role in supporting youth athletics for more than five years in this area. Plus, I have been a Sport Clip patron for several years. You can’t beat their commitment to quality. It’s what a sports fan would call a championship haircut experience.”
