Update on Players Ages 9-14 that are Signed Up
March 30, 2011
What I have decided to do is for all of the players, 9-14 years old who are registered, I am willing to teach (have practice) them 1-2 days a week while I am home for 14 days. I have found someone who is willing to teach them while I am offshore for 14 days. Hopefully, we can find some other teams around the parishes that would be willing to play some practice games against us. If you are interested in doing this for your child, please let me know...Brent Vauclin...985-209-0733...email@example.com.
Update on the 9-14 Age Groups
March 28, 2011
Due to the lack of registrations and parents asking for refunds, we have decided to end registrations for the 9-14 year old age groups in Baseball and Softball. The only option left is that we could still have practices for the boys and girls to learn the fundamentals of the game. For those interested in leaving their son/daughter(s) in the program for practice, we will refund your registration fee minus the cost for insurance.
We will bring the registrations, birth certificates, and money to the Bayou Blue Gym on Tuesday, March 29. For those of you who wrote a check or paid cash for a child in the 9-14 group and a child in the 3-8 year old group, I will have to mail your refund when I get home on Tuesday, April 5.
During my 14 days off, I am willing to teach the fundamentals 1-2 days a week. While I am offshore for 14 days, I would like for someone to volunteer to teach.

LA GSA Sports is a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to promoting developmental leagues and competitive sports for young athletes in Louisiana.
History of GSA (Global Sports Authority)
Global Sports Authority began in September of 2002. Since our beginning, our main goal has been to provide the best competition possible in Tournaments. We work hard at our rankings in order to create the highest level of competition. The high level of competition shows in our Tournaments because the majority of our Tournaments come down to the "If" game. And we have a lot of 1 and 2 run games.
GSA offers 6 classifications in order to do our best at placing teams of the same caliber in Tournaments. Those 6 classifications are A - GOLD, A - SILVER, B - GOLD, B - SILVER, B - BRONZE, and B - COPPER. GSA has people that have been with other organizations over the years, and our goal is to create high quality competition for the top teams in the World, all the way down to teams that are just trying there luck at Tournaments. We have seen teams over the years that would have continued playing Tournaments had there been a place for them to play and compete. We know it doesn't do the top teams any good to play someone that is just starting out, and it don't do the teams that are just starting out any good to play teams that have been together for years.
We also realize that certain rules may work good for one classification and may not for another. So we listen to what each individual group has to say about there group and try our best to set our rules each year based on individual groups. We fell that we are the most "Coach Friendly" organization there is in both Youth and Adult Amateur Sports.
We also encouarge leagues to sanction with GSA. We will soon have a rankings system designed for Leagues. The teams or a league representative will be able to post league results, and the league can keep track of their league rankings. Plus our system will rank your league teams with other league teams all over the World. You will be able to search rankings for your league only, as well as rankings from your State, Region, Country, or World wide.
For more information about the LA GSA Sports program, please contact Brent Vauclin at 985-209-0733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
