Kimberly Greene is the first ever Women's Military Basketball Association (WMBA) Commissioner. Kimberly brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this effort to support our female military athletes.
Coach "K" has been a very familiar face to military basketball over many years. Throughout her military career, Kimberly could be found playing on various military base teams. The love for basketball led her to be the founder and coach of the Offutt Air Force Base Men’s basketball team in Bellevue, Nebraska from 2011 to 2015 while also serving as Head Coach for the Nebraska Strikers, a women’s semi-professional basketball team. She was also an Assistant Head coach for Central High School Varsity Girls basketball team in 2014 where she helped players graduate and secure college basketball scholarships. Kimberly volunteered her time to coach a boys Jewish team in their World Maccabi Games (which is equivalent to the youth Olympics). Under her leadership, that team set a record for most points ever scored by any team from San Antonio and won a bronze medal, which was also the first medal to be won as well.
Kimberly currently serves as the Deputy Commissioner for Central United States Military Basketball League (CUSMBL), overseeing and managing 16 teams throughout the Midwestern and Southern states. She also a member on the MBA board as well. Kimberly was recognized in her local community in Louisiana as one of their Living Legends of Sports where she was honored next to NFL super bowl winners and Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees.
Everyone who has known Kimberly, knows that she is a lover of people and passionate about serving others in any way she can. She continues to find ways she can reach people, whether it’s through basketball, real estate or fellowship. Kimberly has volunteered with such organizations as Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, and ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover just to name a few. In October, Kimberly held and oversaw her first charity basketball tournament in Memory and Remembrance of her friend Marico D. Gray who passed away of cancer.
This year will be the 3rd annual Marico Gray Tournament and is shaping up to be one of the biggest military tournaments this year! She strives daily to bridge gaps where partnerships wouldn’t normally exist and fill needs wherever they are lacking. Kimberly Greene was inducted into the 2019 MBA Hall of Fame Class.
