Youth Sports an Economic Driver for BA

Baseball_indian springs 300

Broken Arrow is known for hosting some of the region's largest youth sports tournaments. Many of these teams stay for several days in Broken Arrow, spending money at our local hotels, restaurants and stores. 


In an effort to attract more tournaments to our community, the Convention and Visitors Bureau is embarking on a video marketing campaign. In Oklahoma, the tourism and travel industry generates $634 million annually. It’s the third largest industry in the state behind oil/gas and agriculture. Marketing to bring sports teams to Broken Arrow is an effort we know will provide a return on our investment.


Contact Lori Hill if you are interested in hosting a sporting event in Broken Arrow. We'd love to hear from you!
