Baseball – Spring
The varsity baseball program at Geneva strives for excellence both on and off the field. As a program, it aims to develop the skills necessary for every player to compete at the highest level. Whether through off-season strength and conditioning, early Saturday morning practices, or on-field play all members of the program understand that hard work is not easy and that they play for more than just a win on the scorecard. While on-field accomplishments and postseason success are always team goals, the coaches understand that their primary objective is to use the game of baseball as a tool to help mold the boys into God-fearing young men rooted in his Word. Throughout the year the baseball program provides many opportunities for players to train and work on their craft utilizing the great facilities at the new campus.
