The GA Way
We often get asked what sets our training apart from a player just creating their own workout that they found on Youtube or that they learned in practice. We even get asked how are we different from other trainers. Our answer?
There are several things that make our training unique:
- Our Curriculum is infused with top-level basketball knowledge that is used by professional basketball players all over the world.
- Our Workouts are custom designed to give the player a maximum workout experience.
- Our Trainers receive continued education to bring the most cutting edge material to the players.
However, none of those thing is our true emphasis. We have a shirt that says, “Pray. Eat. Hoop. Repeat.” That’s right, hoop isn’t #1!
At GA, we don’t do what we do for the money or the fame. We do what we do to give glory and honor to God. We realize that basketball is an international language that reaches all people, and if we can use it to bring those people closer to the Almighty, then…LET’S HOOP! Coach Brandon Osborne has created a one-of-a-kind curriculum designed to create better players, students, and most importantly Christians on and off the court. We have proudly served thousands of young people to become not just better players, but better people. That’s the G.A. way!
Meet Our Trainers

What all does Genesis Athletics offer?
We are a Strategic Basketball Skill and Performance Enhancement Company. We offer year around basketball skill development camps, groups, semi-private, and private sessions. Within our sessions we encourage and emphasize leadership and character based training!
What ages does Genesis Athletics start development training?
We don’t necessary have an age we start with because every child developmentally is different. However, our Next Generation group normally does not start before the age of 7, unless your athlete is more mature and can do independent work. If you are unsure about if your athlete is ready, let him/her try a class and the GA Skill Coach will help you make the decision!
