When participating in any sport at a high level, there are various elements that contribute to you performing at your best. Athletes at the professional level concur with the foundational skills training principals in which Team Genesis skills training was built upon. An intense basketball schedule, proper nutrition and individual skills training, will assist in building the “All around Athlete.”
To be the best, you have to beat the best. The Genesis Academy participants will be provided a stage in which they can showcase their basketball abilities at the highest level. Being perfectly nestled in the center of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia, there are a plethora of private high schools and prep schools with highly touted athletes. A few of the schools to name that have produced world class athletes are Oak Hill Academy, Mt. Zion, Fork Union, Hargrave Military Academy are just to name a few. These private institutions have a strong academic and athletic boarding school tradition. They are also within a 95 mile radius amongst other traditionally proven schools.
the gifted athletes program
Not every basketball player that graduates from a boarding school goes on to be the next Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant or Steve Nash. But, each one of these players will tell you that attending their respective boarding high schools, is what catapulted their learning, maturation process and to them most importantly, their basketball skills. From 1995-2005 over 35 high school basketball players were drafted from high school straight to the NBA. Over 95% of those athletes attended some form of non public education during their high school years.
The Team Genesis Gifted athletes program will assist our athlete’s to grow personally in ways that uniquely prepare them for the public eye. With a comprehensive basketball skills and development program, each player will learn the basic fundamentals needed to maximize themselves to their fullest potential. With very specific strength and conditioning techniques, the nuances of the game will also be a focus as each player develops. Being perfectly nestled in the heart of ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) country, as well as many Big East and SEC schools, our players will be provided a high level schedule, and a platform in which they can showcase their gifts and compete for an NCAA Division 1 scholarship.
Unlike typical formats of public education, these players will be in an environment where they all share the same goal. Learning to be accountable to one another on and off the court, will truly build core values and long lasting relationships. Sharing in this common goal will give each student athlete a sense of pride in their school and most importantly themselves. “We look to attract gifted athletes, who are driven to excel in their sport as well as in life!”
