About G.A.

Hoop is not #1!

 

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!

Katelyn Goodman

Katelyn Goodman

Youth Trainer
Katelyn is a more recent addition to the Genesis Athletics Family, and we couldn’t be happier!  As a former Division 1 Athlete, Katelyn began as a client of Genesis Athletics and through her training and development became a player for Abilene Christian University for 2 seasons.  Unfortunately, a knee injury ultimately changed her status but not her love for the game!

 

Katelyn works with our New Genesis Generation players and she does an awesome job!  Her energy immediately helps the players feel comfortable and her knowledge really helps the kids develop their game.  We are blessed to have her and expect great things!  Katelyn is currently studying Graphic Design at ACU.
