ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

 

 

THROUGH SAN FRANCISCO RECREATION & PARKS, THE MRC REBELS GIRLS BASKETBALL CLUB WAS FOUNDED IN 1988 BY OSCAR JIMENEZ, WHO ESTABLISHED A SMALL GYM IN THE MISSION DISTRICT OF SAN FRANCISCO AS A MECCA FOR WOMEN’S BASKETBALL IN CALIFORNIA. NOW AFTER CLOSE TO 30 YEARS OF COMPETITIVE PLAY, THE SAN FRANCISCO MRC REBELS ARE KNOWN AS ONE OF THE DOMINANT POWERHOUSES IN CALIFORNIA’S AAU CIRCUIT WITH COUNTLESS TITLE BANNERS AND MULTIPLE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS HANGING IN THE RAFTERS.

OSCAR JIMENEZ DIED SUDDENLY IN 2010 AT THE AGE OF 57, WHICH RESULTED IN COUNTLESS GIRLS LOSING A LONGTIME MENTOR, FRIEND, AND FATHER-FIGURE. BUT WITH THE HELP OF NEW TALENT, THE CLUB HAS SUCCESSFULLY REBOUNDED AND IS LOOKING TO INNOVATE & DEFINE THE FUTURE. EACH YEAR IN HIS HONOR, WE ALONG WITH MANY OTHER PROGRAMS PLAY IN HIS ANNUAL TOURNAMENT HOSTED IN RENO, NV. TO CONTINUE HIS LEGACY.

THE MRC REBELS AAU PROGRAM PRIMARILY SERVES GIRLS FROM SAN FRANCISCO’S MOST DIVERSE, LOW-INCOME COMMUNITIES IN THE CITY THAT ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR GANG-RELATED ACTIVITY. PROGRAMS LIKE MRC ARE CRITICAL FOR THE FUTURE SUCCESS FOR THESE INNER CITY ATHLETES TO HAVE A SAFE PLACE TO SUCCEED WITH THE INTENTION OF ATTENDING A 4-YEAR UNIVERSITY IN THE FUTURE. THE PROGRAM OFFERS HIGH LEVEL SKILL DEVELOPMENT. THIS TO HELP PLAYERS  REINFORCE AND LEARN PROPER BASKETBALL FUNDAMENTALS THAT INCLUDE; FOOTWORK, SHOOTING, PASSING, REBOUNDING, BALL-HANDLING, DEFENSE, AND BUILDING LAST LONGING FRIENDSHIPS.

EACH SEASON TEAMS PLAY IN BOTH LOCAL TOURNAMENTS, AND TRAVEL TOURNAMENTS FROM; RENO, LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, PORTLAND, AND MANY MORE LOCATIONS. PLAYERS HAVE THE LUXURY TO STAY WITH THE PROGRAM AND FROM 4TH GRADE UNTIL HIGH SCHOOL WHERE THEY GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY IN TRAVEL TOURNAMENTS IN FRONT COLLEGE COACHES!

THE MRC COACHING STAFF HAS PLAYED IN NCAA COLLEGE BASKETBALL PROGRAMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND IN PRO LEAGUES OVERSEAS. THE EXPERIENCED COACHING STAFF IS AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT TO THE CONTINUED SUCCESS OF THE REBELS ORGANIZATION, WHICH ALLOWS MRC ATHLETES TO REALIZE THEIR POTENTIAL AND EASILY TRANSITION INTO D1 NCAA PROGRAMS.
