GENESIS BASKETBALL’S COMMENTS ON SEAN MAHEU’S CRIMINAL CHARGES 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Friday, January 22, 2021: Calgary, AB: Genesis Basketball is aware of the allegations regarding former coach Sean Maheu. We take this situation seriously and have been, and will continue to be, in full cooperation with the Calgary Policy Service’s (CPS) investigation. 

We have been in communication with the family of the young man involved and are deeply saddened. We will support them however possible. 

Mr. Maheu started coaching with Genesis in 2015 and left in 2018. He was well known in the basketball community and worked with other programs before coming to Genesis. At the time of Mr. Maheu joining our club, he was employed with Hull Services, an organization that works with some of the city’s most vulnerable youth and families. 

Genesis coaches – or anyone in direct contact with youths – are required to have a recent CPS police check that is no longer than a year old. Coaches are also required to have completed a ‘vulnerable sector search’ specifically for Genesis Basketball. We have always been proactive in leading our community in providing our athletes with a safe learning environment and will continue to improve going forward. 

With respect to the charges that have been laid, out of respect for the family and the young man involved, Genesis will have no further comment at this time. 

Thank you, 

Eddie Richardson, President
