The Antioch Youth Sports Complete began to be developed in 1992. The first phase of 14.5 acres was completed in 1995 with 9 baseball/softball fields. There are nine Little League size (60') bases. This is a quality complex, we tried to do everything "right" when it was built, using quality materials. This created a facility that should last indefinitely.

The AYSC is a 501.3c nonprofit operated by a 14 member board comprised of community volunteers. No one who serves is paid. AYSC operates on a shoestring budget and most of its income goes to the landscape contractor (who mows the grass, edges, and fertilizes the grass areas). The remainder of our expenses are insurance (high), capital improvements and other maintenance and repairs.
Our revenues are derived from the three primary leagues who play there. They pay an annual fee (flat) plus a player surcharge. We have a mobile home (donated) on the property used as an office and meeting room for the leagues and the AYSC board of directors.
Our snack bar operates during the league season providing additional income.
Our volunteer board is comprised of very active community individuals: at large members (10) plus one representative from each of the three main leagues: Antioch Little League, Delta Baseball & Softball League and Delta Youth Soccer League.
We had been leasing (20 year lease, at $1.00 per year) the original 14.5 acres since 1991 from a local company. We purchased the entire property (47.5 acres in October of 2004 and began to development the new property for soccer fields in late 2004. The purchase was make possible by a $1,300,000 grant from the Mirant Corporation made possible through the efforts of Antioch Mayor Don Freitas. The property was purchased from
Temple Inland at a greatly reduced price of ten cents on the dollar. Almost all of the grant went to purchase the entire parcel.
We have excellent support and communication with the entire Antioch City Council and the city staff. They have acted as our engineering department. They helped to prepare our grading and drainage plans. We will also have been able to save significant amounts of money on "hook up" costs for utilities through the efforts of the GWF Corporation in early 2005. This donation saved us $50-75,000.
In Feb 2011 the east soccer fields were completed and practices started on them. Four years later DYSL built restrooms at the fields
The huge benefit of the experience derived from building the first AYSC complex: 1. The experience and knowledge based on a number of individuals from that first core group helping. 2. City of Antioch support (engineering, water, and council support). 3. Money from grants and land sales to fund all of our major remaining expenses, i.e. hydo-seeding, pathways, ramps, landscaping, a play ground and snack bar annex and protective netting around homes .
The first 14.5 acre facility was a dream come true for area youth sports and the community. Completing the second phase was just as rewarding.
