SAN DIEGO, Calif. - On Tuesday May, 14th the University of San Diego women's basketball team hosted a clinic for the Senior Women's Basketball Association.

The clinic started at 6:30 p.m. and many of them arrived early and eager to learn. The clinic began with introductions of the Toreros, USD coaching staff, and a few of the senior women had opportunities to share personal stories about women's basketball before Title IX. These amazing women shared memories of the game of basketball before they could even play full court.

One group that joined USD among those women was the 80+ age group. The players and coaches broke up into four groups and did station work with them, focusing on screening, ball handling, shooting, and help side defense. The event was a blast, and afterwards the toreros got an opportunity to socialize with these women and learn a ton of wosdom form them.

The Senior Women's Basketball Association is a nonprofit organization based in San Diego, Calif. It is governed by an elected executive board. 
SWBA members are women from all walks of life: business owners, dentists, doctors, engineers, lawyers, homemakers, nurses, military and teachers. 

Participants must be at least 50 years of age. The SWBA's oldest player is 86 years. Any woman, age 50 or older, who enjoys basketball and shows good sportsmanship may join and play.

The SWBA plays three-on-three, half-court, recreational and competitive basketball. Their regular league play is divided into four sessions per year (summer, fall, winter, and spring) and runs for approximately 8-10 weeks per session. Each team plays two 20-minute games weekly under the supervision of qualified referees. These scheduled games are played Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings at the Mission Valley YMCA.
