1. To recognize former athletes, coaches, administrators, and community members for their contributions to Geneva High School Athletics.

2. To showcase the rich tradition and heritage of Geneva Athletics to visitors and community members.

3. To provide current and future students an ideal to admire and aspire to, as well as an awareness of the greatness that preceded them.


1. An athlete must be at least five years removed from high school.

2. An athlete's total high school experience as well as his/her collegiate and post-college non-athletic career are considered.

3. Inductions will be limited to three per year and will strive for gender and sports balance ( though it should be remembered that female athletics and many current sports offerings have much shorter histories at GHS). 

4. The inductions are not based on the order of importance.  Rather, each year there will be an attempt to vary the generations of the group to be inducted to enhance interest in the program.
