About Us

The only thing that separates one player from another is his or her physical ability, mental aptitude, and an intrinsic motivation to be more than the average player.

Genesis Baseball Academy represents a beginning of understanding in both the physical and the emotional baseball or softball player. Skills will not only be taught on a session basis, but the program is designed to test throwing, fielding, and hitting abilities. Our program focuses on areas that are essential to become an efficient and thriving prospect.

Robert Shipman, a former professional baseball player and instructor, will be heading up the academy in Valdosta. He has been blessed to travel around the country evaluating young athletes. Robert’s baseball instructional travels have taken him to 22 states and 4 provinces in Canada to instruct and evaluate players. As a member of a professional baseball school, Shipman, in a 7 year span, has worked with over 20,000 young athletes.

Brad Porter will partner with Shipman to head up the academy as well.  In addition to his playing experience Brad brings over two decades of teaching/coaching baseball on the college, high school, and youth levels.  Brad also has a great deal of experience as a professional scout, a college recruiter, a showcase organizer, and a college camp instructor.  Coach Porter has evaluated and developed baseball talent throughout the southeast.  He has coached both high school and college All-Americans and seen quite a few of his players be selected in the MLB draft.

In our instructional environment, our goal is to create habits that can be maintained after the sessions are completed. Areas such as physical training, mental preparation, and beliefs in core values will be covered by instruction, discussion, or classroom lectures. We pray that Genesis Academy will be a tool to further your athlete’s career.
