Our Mission

Welcome to the website of Healing Place Athletics, a ministry of Healing Place Church. Healing Place Athletics began in 2001 as an outreach to the local community of Baton Rouge. It now houses baseball, softball, and soccer programs for kids. Every aspect of our program is designed with one goal in mind; to point people in the direction of Jesus.


To create an environment for children to know and experience Jesus, along with growing in their knowledge and skill of any given sport.

  • Spiritual Development

    Teach players how we are to live a life pleasing God.

Who we are

You can EXPECT, FROM US, that we will be timely in our communication and do our very best to provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere for you.

Our primary role as staff and leaders of HP Athletics is to protect the atmosphere and environment of the leagues and to make sure we are fulfilling the mission of HP Athletics.

Sports Offered

We currently offer the following programs.

  • Youth

    Baseball, softball, t-ball, and soccer

  • Adults

    Softball, basketball, volleyball, kickball, pickle ball, and tennis tournaments held periodically throughout the year

Our Adult Sporting Events offer the opportunity for individuals to connect with one another in a non-threatening environment. There are some people who may never want to come to church, but will play a day of softball or spend an evening shooting hoops with friends. These individuals are met on their terms in an environment that they can relate to. In turn, friendships are forged and we’ve seen lives changed, due to the athletic opportunities presented here at Healing Place Church.
