UPCOMING CAMP DATES
All Sports Camp at Louisiana Baseball and Softball Academy is broken into two categories: Holiday Camps and Summer Camp. Holiday Camps occur throughout the year with a list of dates shown above. Summer Camp is a specific (8) week period beginning on June 1 and ending on July 24. Click Summer Camp to learn about registration and sign up today! Historically, we max out by May 31.
Boys and Girls ages 5 - 12 are invited to participate in this all sports camp experience. Camp is broken into three age groups:
Registration available online or in-person on day of camp. All Sports Camp registrations are offered on a weekly and daily basis.
Daily registration is $45/day for Holiday Camps, and weekly registration is offered at $200 during Holiday Camps. Daily registration is $50/day for Summer Camp, and weekly registration is $225 for Summer Camp. Three Day Camps have an "All Three Day" registration of $120.
If you plan on registering in person, please allow 15 minutes prior to the start of the camp day (9:00 AM) as we do have to gather quite a bit of information to ensure the safety and well being of your child!
Camp days will include instruction and game play in baseball, basketball, flag football, soccer and other specialty sports. Each day will entail a speed and agility component that translates to enhanced functional movement and body control that is applicable for all ages.
This is the perfect camp for boys and girls who enjoy movement, or who need a little motivation to get moving! Housed indoor at Louisiana Baseball and Softball Academy, who wouldn't have fun playing and learning new games in a safe and controlled environment?

Camp will supply all gear, however, baseball specific work is best to do with the same gear you will use in games/practices outside of camp. Q: Do you have to purchase lunch from Louisiana Baseball and Softball Academy or can you bring your own food? A: Lunches from home can be brought daily (no dietary restricts at this time but as allergies can factor, parents will be made aware if any restricts are needed). Food for purchase will be available as part of your registration process in the near future (still working out details). Questions? email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
BUILDING BLOCKS- OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS!
Our approach to early childhood and elementary age sports education is simple: provide a foundation based on the basic elements of the subject matter and don't put a cap on the results!
Leading young people doesn't require personal accolades or success of the instructor in the given subject matter. Young people have a zest for knowledge and experience, what "you did" probably occurred before they were born so it's really insignificant to their perspective. What does matter in the mind of a young person is can you relate? Can you inspire? Can you communicate on a level that THEY can understand? At Junction Place Sports, our staff is provided a curriculum, better yet a language, that ensures just that! While communication with parents/guardians is of the utmost importance to our organizational principals, our aim is to have YOUR child be able to explain to you what they learned and love about Basketball Basics and Simply Soccer!
We provide clear and pointed adult based information- the "who/what/where/when's". What we don't do is force a narrative of what your child did or how they felt about it in a "copy and paste" email/text format that has become common place today. That's not the job of an instructor of young people. We aim to have your child fill in the blanks to whatever questions you may have! Our instruction is repetitive, like, really repetitive, as in, we say the same phrases over and over and over and over again- something we are sure you can understand. We don't back away from that approach. It works.
Here is what you can expect when you provide your child the experience of Junction Place Sports' Basketball Basic or Simply Soccer Programs:
