Since 1961, the LHSAA has been able to create some of the premier championship events in the entire country and our student-athletes have been privileged to play those championships in great atmospheres and tremendous facilities around the state. It is with great excitement and anticipation that we inform you of our plans for continued improvement as we strive for even greater excellence in our state championship events across the board. In an effort to maximize the potential of our championship events, the LHSAA recently partnered with Varsity Event Management, L.L.C., a third-party sports event management company with offices in north and south Louisiana, who will assist in the management of all LHSAA sanctioned championship events. We feel this partnership will not only benefit the LHSAA, but will also prove an extraordinary benefit to host communities as well by greatly diminishing the burden shouldered by our host sites in the past.
Varsity Event Management will serve as the liaison between the LHSAA and host sites, assuring that a first-class, professional, championship event is consistently produced in all sports while allowing the Association to focus more on its core mission as a regulatory agency providing a firm foundation of fairness and equity for our state’s student-athletes that extends beyond the game. The history of LHSAA championships is rich and we at the Association office constantly strive to continue the tradition of raising the bar for our student-athletes.
