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 became familiar with Team Genesis a couple of years ago when a family member became involved. As I have watched from a distance, I have seen a great vision from it's members and a determination to see it carried out. When you are considering having your children become involved in something, the character of it's representatives is key and it is that character and pureness of heart that drives this organization. I believe the impact they will make in years to come is great.

My son decided to start playing basketball relatively late in life at the age of fifteen. Although he is an athlete, he had a lot to learn about this sport. Harry was recommended to us by a friend, and my son has been working out with him for 3 months, and the experience has been overwhelmingly positive! Although Harry has plenty of knowledge about the sport, I believe his true gift lies in his ablility to teach and relate to his students. He has given my son the tools that he needs to be successful on the basketball court, yet he has allowed my son to develop a love for the sport at his own pace. Harry has become so much more than a trainer to my son.

My son has been working with Harry Williams for six(6) months now. He was just coming off a very bad leg break and Harry worked him back into shape both physically and mentally on the basketball court. My son was able to start on his high school basketball team as captain and continues to work with Harry to achieve his goal of playing D1 in college. The relationship they have forged and the life lessons he has learned from this program are such that he will take with him as he continues to move forward towards his dream. As his mother I couldn't be more pleased to see my son doing what he loves with someone who genuinely cares about his success Leslie Kozera

Team Genesis is an organization that I have supported since its national debut in 2009. I have seen the impact that Team Genesis had from its start in Houston several years ago, and will continute to follow them as they grow and make an even greater impact. The people that run this organization are so focused on the participants, and selflessly give of their time and resources.. They are currently helping my son connect gain exposure from colleges that are offering athletic scholarship, something that might not have been possible without their help.

I have been fortunate enough to be active in Team Genesis since the project because national in 2009. The vision is unlike any others that I have seen, and equally as important, those who are working toward this goal are pure of heart.

Team Genesis is very much a grassroots, personal connection type of tutoring organization. There is a very hands-on feel to the organization, and a willingness in the staff to listen to its "locally grown" volunteers' ideas for who to talk to at the schools, and then actually act on those ideas. I would be happy to speak to anyone considering either being a tutor or a student. The program has a huge potential to help a lot of kids.

Team Genesis is an excellent education and sports program which gives young men a chance to excel in the classroom as well as on the basketball court. Harry Williams and his staff work hard to provide a strong education and mentorship experience for these young men.
