Travel Ball



The Louisiana Baseball and Softball Academy is very proud to announce the introduction of our own travel baseball and softball program.  While the doors are wide open for any individual or team, regardless of affiliation or skill level, to practice and train at the facility, these LBSA teams will be a complement to the many great programs that are already housed within our building.

The LBSA Baseball and Softball Programs will provide:

  • An all-inclusive travel ball program with an absolute focus on total player development, both on and off the field.
  • Coached by great youth coaches from the Greater New Orleans Area with extensive backgrounds in the game of baseball and softball.
  • Team practices, including fielding, hitting, and bullpen work, will be held twice a week on the indoor facility field area and cages.  Outside fields will also be utilized throughout the year for practices.
  • Additional team strength, conditioning, agility, and arm care training session will be included throughout the year.
  • Season will last from roughly September-July and play in 10-15 tournaments, including the State Tournament and World Series.
  • Weekend tournaments and mid-week league participation will be based in the Greater New Orleans Area – Chalmette, Metairie, New Orleans, Hammond locations. *Subject to change according to team ability.
  • Structured plans will be designed as a “curriculum,” providing the player and parents a roadmap as to what each team should accomplish by the end of the season.
