About The Yard

Lafayette's Premier Indoor Training Facility

For Youth & Athletes Across Acadiana!

We created The Yard because we felt that Lafayette needed a facility like ours, where kids and athletes can express their passion for sports in an environment that nourishes and enriches them.

With our 5,000 sq ft climate-controlled facility, complete with batting cages, pitching lanes, and a host of athletic equipment, we are ready to share our love of sports and athletics with Acadiana!
