Play – Our venues proudly host events for youth, collegiate and professional level athletes. There is a reason why these events come back year after year.

The Gulf Shores Sportsplex has championship track and field facilities, a five-plex with press box, high school baseball and football fields and lots of room for tents and parking. If you need an indoor space for events such as gymnastics, dance, volleyball or karate, check out the Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf. With more than 18,000 square feet of flexible space, you can create the perfect place to play!

Beach – Come down early or spend some time between events with your toes in the sand (or the surf). Grab a book and beach chair, take a jog on the beach, try your hand at skim boarding…the possibilities are endless. After a day of tough competition, can you think of a better way to unwind and reflect than with a sunset walk on the beach? Grab a bite to eat at one of the many Gulf-front restaurants or pack a picnic.

Sleep – Whether you are looking for a large beach house or condo to accommodate your team, or just a place to lay your head in between games, you can find the perfect lodging to fit your family and budget at the beach. Vacation rental companies such as Brett/Robinson Vacation Rentals and Kaiser Realty by Wyndham Vacation Rentals can help you find the best accommodations that will please everyone.

Repeat – Now that you know the drill, you can do it all over again. With so many restaurants, activities, and miles and miles of white beaches you can put these days on repeat and still not do it all. The best part? The beach is calling year-round so go ahead and make plans to come back!
