My profound love goes to Harry & Amanda for their dedication towards Genesis Academy. I thank God for people like these two who made the academic well being of other kids their priority. Genesis Academy school corriculum is so unique that my son is enjoying it, safe dorm environment with dedicated coaches and educators. This is my son's first year and we feel like he have been there from the beginning. Genesis Academy a great place to be.

First I will like to thank god for genesis academy and the Williams family.Team Genesis is a culmination of promoting academic excellence and tapping into the passions of young athletes. This organization does not only help keep inner youths off the streets but it inculcates valuable life lessons that are essential in the life of a student athlete. Team Genesis not only teaches these students how to play on the field, but how to live in a society where academic excellence is key! Being the best on the court is important; however, Team Genesis does a phenomenal job developing these athletes to be tomorrow’s leaders. Thank you again to the Williams family for all the help with Shawn.

First I would like to thank God for making Genesis Academy a success! Without the dedication of the Williams family I dont know where my son would be right now. This is his second year at the school and he has changed for the better spiritually,academically,and he has become a better basketball player. He has had colleges interested in him and he has finally taken his school work seriously. I recommened this school to any young man looking to become an all around great athelete. My son will be one of the first from the school to graduate next year and its just a blessing.

I first became involved with Team Genesis about six months ago when a friend recommended the organization for my son. I immediately saw the impact that the organization and its mission has on young males. I was so impressed with the results and the personnel that I quickly became involved. I started volunteering and joined the advisory board. Today I hope more students take advantage of the amazing opportunities and programs that Team Genesis provides.

I absolutely love Team Genesis and its mission to improve the lives of student-athletes. All members of the organization are passionate about serving the area students in ways that are often overlooked by other programs. Team Genesis' Books & Ball program is a great asset to the community--student athletes not only have the opportunity to receive FREE tutoring, but they receive SAT preparation and NCAA eligibilty help. This allows students to really SEE their future unfold; some students may not think college, or playing their sport at a college level, truly possible, but with Team Genesis' help, this dream can become a reality. I am priviledged to work with this organization because I know that it directy impacts these kids lives in a positive way.

The Team Genesis Books and Ball program, is something that has been missing, and is truly welcomed, in the Cebtral Virginia area. The William's have been very helpful with both the academic, as well as the ahthletic development of area youth. especially, from the academic point of view: SAT testing preperation, individual tutoring for students, and assistance in to find and sign for available college fynding, how and when to apply to collges, and from the athletic side: basic fundamental understanding and concepts of the game of basketball, both one one and group training, to develope and enhance, each ahtheletes individual skill. There main focus is on the basketball from the atheletic standpoint, however the skills and drills that Mr. Williams instructs , can be used to increase speed, strenght and coordination , in any sport, and of course the academic preparation that Mrs. Williams assist students with, is great for any athelet in any sport, as education, is the most inportant resource, that our youth, need to develope, to health them transistion into their adult life.

This non-profit's mission is to work with athletes to enhance their skills and get them into college. So many young athletes don't know the proper steps to take, making Team Genesis an asset to any student in high school who wants to play their sport in college. Through their tutoring programs and the Academy they are working to open, this organization is working hard to ensure young and talented athletes move on to do tremendous things with their lives!

My son played with Team Genesis this past year and I have nothing but great things to say about our experience. Not only is this program great for athletics, but it also builds character. These practices were like none other that I have experienced--Coach Harry truly has a gift and I'm happy that my son was able to train under his leadership. It is apparent that he has a genuine interest in the success of the kids--he truly wants them to reach their goals, whether to play on a high school, college or professional level.

I highly recommend Team Genesis to anyone--it has truly helped my son grow in so many ways. One practice with team Genesis will allow you to see exactly what I'm talking about--try it!

I really like the way team genesis support and encourage as well as help tutor them. I will gladly send periodic donations to this cause. I think it is a wonderful thing that team genesis has created and i would love to see it continue even beyond my child benefiting
