This explains who we are and what we do.
The Student Athlete Academy/Rebels Youth Basketball Club is a
non-profit organization, founded in 1987 to help kids develop both
academic and social skills, as well as their basketball skills. We
emphasize the "Student" in our organization. Our emphasis is essentially
the participants academic performance as we require the kids to maintain
a high GPA in order to participate in our athletic program. We provide
our student athletes with services such as academic tutors and mentors
in both school and life.
The Student Athlete Academy is not only responsible for influencing a lot of similar programs in the general Bay Area, but also for impacting the lives of hundreds of young men and women in and around our community whom otherwise would have no access to a program that is geared towards their success.
The Student Athlete Academy strives to help our participants in achieving an academic level that will help them with college admissions and/or be eligible for a college scholarship through sports.
