Southwest Louisiana has been called the High School Championship Mecca of Louisiana as a result of being awarded all baseball, softball, basketball and swimming state championships. It is a testament to the quality facilities and their hardworking staffs, as well as our passion for providing athletes and coaches with a top-notch experience on and off the field. Hear what others have to say about their experiences.

“The relationship USSSA/Sports Productions has developed with Southwest Louisiana is the model by which others should be judged. The Lake Charles Multi Sports Complex is a phenomenal facility. And the effort put forth by the Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention Visitors Bureau goes far above my expectations and well exceeds the service that our events have received in other areas of the country.”


Joey Odom
USSSA Executive Vice-President

“A top-notch facility, the Lake Charles Multi-Sports Complex allows us to bring in teams from around the nation to the Louisiana Showcase of Soccer. The teams return to Lake Charles because of the great facilities, the support of the community, and the unbeatable Southern hospitality.”

Jason Oertling
Six time Louisiana High School Soccer Coach of the Year

“The Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau has proven to be our facilities' rudder for event planning. Our facilities have hosted over 100,000 sporting, recreation and cultural event attendees. This number is still growing thanks, in no small part, to their guidance, planning and execution.”

Norman Farr
Director, Sulphur Parks & Recreation

“We had such a great time in Southwest Louisiana on our Bound for Beijing Tour! The southern hospitality, the facilities, the crowd, everything was top notch! For me personally it was probably my favorite stop! The entire community was very welcoming and so very excited to have us!”
