Event

Working in conjunction with the Lake Charles Visitors Bureau, we have secured hotels throughout the city. Rates may vary by hotel choice. We have worked with the Lake Charles Visitors Bureau (CVB) to ensure hotels across the city with competitive rates to fit various budgets from economy hotels to resort-style hotels. The minimum required rooms for the week are 60 room nights per team. The room requirement comprises all players, coaches, and family members associated with the team. You may select more rooms in advance if desired. A link will be provided to coaches for each team’s hotel accommodations and can be forwarded to parents to complete their hotel reservations. Please note, there will be a limited timeframe to complete the hotel reservations. Failure to complete a hotel reservation as a part of this stay to play event will result in a cancellation of the team’s registration at that time and the deposit will not be refunded. Our goal is to be sure all groups and families have a seamless registration process, so please be diligent about your timeframes. Almost every hotel has a cancellation process with lead times and emergencies. There will be a $500 deposit for hotels. The deposit will be added to the second installment and refunded in August if the hotel requirements are fulfilled.

“This baseball event will bring people from all over the country to Southwest Louisiana, and it is a stay-to-play tournament, meaning that the event is guaranteed to fill hotel rooms and provide a significant boost to the local economy. We could not begin to bring business like this to the Lake Area without strong partnerships and the outpouring of support from local agencies, businesses, the hospitality community, volunteers and the incredible fanbase right here in Calcasieu Parish,” said Eric Zartler, sales director for VLC.

The Dixie Pre-Majors Future Stars event was held June 7-8, 2013 in Eufaula, Alabama. Four teams participated in the Future Stars Event while two 15U teams also held a two game series! In the championship game, the Warriors held a 5-4 lead against the Russell County Hawks going into the bottom of the fifth when severe weather caused the game to be cancelled. Old Hickory Bats once again provided the wood bats for the event. A special thank you to the City of Eufaula Parks & Recreation Department for serving as tournament host.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the NBFSS National Tournament to Southwest Louisiana and Lake Charles. I’ve had the privilege of building some great relationships in this area over the years. I signed my first big leaguer in Lake Charles, Josh Prince. From Coach Cecchini and the entire Barbe Program, Chad Hebert at Sam Houston High School, and the staff at McNeese State, this community has always treated me like family. MLB veteran and P15 Co-Catching Coordinator Danny Ardoin is here in Lake Charles. Danny, along with the 2D sports family, is extremely close to P15. I cannot wait to bring the Future Stars Series to this region. I know this will be a unique experience for the NBFSS National Tournament and a great opportunity to share in the culture of this great community,” said Jeremy Booth, Program 15 founder and CEO/President of Baseball Operations for NBFSS.
