Edmond Youth Sports Association chosen to administer youth leagues in 2022

Edmond Youth SportsCity Council during a special session this week approved a 1-year contract with the Edmond Youth Sports Association (EYSA) to manage youth baseball and softball programs for 2022.

Unanimously recommended by the Parks & Recreation Advisory Board, EYSA will administer leagues at the A.C. Caplinger Sports Complex and the Mitch Park ballfields, provide a strong emphasis on the recreation player, formulate a plan to build a stronger softball program, and ensure the capacity to offer quality tournaments and the ability to administer a thorough field maintenance program.

EYSA was selected from 13 applicants to the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) issued in October 2021 for the management of youth baseball and softball programs. A six-member panel chose six of those submittals to interview.

EYSA was chosen on the strength of its experience managing league play, offering tournaments, field maintenance knowledge and experience and the desire to see the participants develop in their sport. 

Jeff Ludlam, the representative for EYSA, managed Legacy Sports Plex in Oklahoma City from 2009-2014, where he administered leagues for youth baseball and softball and hosted more than 30 tournaments annually. This complex also had a full-service restaurant and concession stand. He has an advisory board in place and will be hiring a general manager who will oversee the daily operations of the program.

Registration for leagues is now available online at www.edmondyouthsports.com.
