The Athletics division of Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department provides recreational activities for Youth ages 5-17 and Adults 18 and above. Its mission is to meet physical and social needs of the citizens of Acadiana. In the Spring of 2019 LPRD implemented the BATA (Building Adults Through Athletics) Program. Since then LPRD have increased participation in Athletics Programs.
LPRD has partnered with various groups such as fraternities, sororities, Civic Clubs Businesses, Churches, Schools Board, Social Agencies and Professional Athletes to help us meet the need of our participants and their families.
LPRD looks forward to increase participation in 2021 and implementing National programs.
