 Fourth Annual Celebration of Girls & Women in Sports Scheduled for February 12 at SDSU Viejas Arena

​It’s been called “the greatest one-day, all-sports clinic there is for young girls,” followed by an SDSU women’s basketball game---all for free---and it’s all coming up on Saturday, February 12 at SDSU’s Viejas Arena.

The all-sports clinic, staffed by varsity athletes from SDSU’s women’s teams, begins at 12:30 p.m., all around the perimeter of Viejas Arena on the SDSU campus. The SDSU athletes, dressed in training apparel, will have equipment for all their respective sports and will give hands-on instruction to the K-8 students.

The clinic concludes just before 2 p.m., when the Aztec women’s basketball team takes on UNLV inside Viejas Arena. After the game, the women’s basketball team will sign autographs for all the youngsters.

“It’s a phenomenal event for young girls,” said County Superintendent of Schools Randy Ward, who has attended all three previous Celebrations with his two young children. “The SDSU athletes not only provide great coaching in their sports, but they’re ideal role models for the young girls. They talk about the importance of studying, of diet and exercise, of personal responsibility, and the message goes a lot farther coming from college athletes than it might if it was a teacher or parent saying it.”

Tickets for the clinics and basketball game are free for children taking part, and their parents and chaperones. For information and to place an order, call (858) 292-3753, or email lfersch@sdcoe.net.
