Broussard, La. – The City of Broussard is pleased to announce the formation of a new cooperative partnership to improve operations and user experience for baseball and softball tournaments hosted by the Broussard Sports Complex at St. Julien Park, the Youngsville Sports Complex, and the Robichaux Sports Complex in Crowley. The three parks will be working with 2D Sports and FASA (fastpitch softball) to create a more efficient use of the combined 28 turf fields available for youth baseball and softball.
Through the newly formed Acadiana Alliance, each park will be better able to maximize its facility capacity throughout the year, maintaining more consistent attendance levels and making scheduling more predictable. In addition, youth travel baseball and softball teams will enjoy a better overall experience with guaranteed play on artificial turf fields. This in turn will attract more teams to tournaments in Acadiana, bringing more visitors and spending to the local community.
The Broussard Sports Complex will host multiple events in 2023: 2D Youth Baseball, Softball, & Select Series, 2D Coach Pitch and Youth World Series, LHSAA softball tournaments, PONY and FASA events.
“We want to provide teams that play here with an experience that’s worth the drive. With all-turf fields, helpful staff, a playground, splashpad and full concessions, the Broussard Sports Complex will offer players, families and fans a fantastic tournament environment,” said Park Director Jamison Abshire. “By working together, we can make the best use of all our facilities while improving the experience for youth baseball and softball teams.”
2D Sports has published a calendar with the scheduled events for 2023 for all three parks that can be found at https://news.2dsports.org/acadiana-alliance. Age-group specific schedules will include designated park locations to help teams better plan travel and accommodations in advance.
