The values of Genesis are our guiding principles for what matters. They direct our actions and serve as the filter for making decisions. Our three core values are Spiritual Growth, Excellence, and Community. Our values, along with a definition and specific examples, are shared below.
"Genesis provides its athletes with intentional opportunities to grow spiritually through many aspects of each sport."
Below are examples of living out our core value of Spiritual Growth.
High school players share God’s word and its application as part of the devotions at the end of each practice.
Athletes serve others in need in the community. These pictures are from a group of athletes across sports packing meals for Midwest Food Bank for inner city families as well as for kids in Haiti.
"Genesis exemplifies integrity and excellence in both words and actions, thereby representing homeschooling well, while giving honor and glory to Jesus Christ."
Below are examples of living out our core value of Excellence.
Genesis Phone App
Parents and athletes have important information available at their fingertips via the Genesis App. It includes rosters, schedules, family directory, ride map, photos, org documents and many other items for parents.
Genesis provides Varsity Letterman Jackets to high school athletes who earn a letter in a sport. In addition to a jacket, patches are also available for the jacket for team awards (State Champions, National Champions) and individual awards (All-State, Most Valuable Player, Christian Character Award).
"Genesis promotes opportunities for fellowship and connection of its athletes and families in an effort to promote strong community."
Below are examples of living out our core value of Community.
Connecting Over Meals
Going out to eat together after games and tournaments is a common occurrence for athletes and families.
To build community amongst athletes and families, Genesis athletes are provided yard signs. This allows the athlete to display to friends, family, and neighbors that they play sports with Genesis along with which sport.
