WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) women's basketball team showed where their true values lie, holding a free clinic with the Enfield Travel Basketball Association Sunday.
Nearly 50 kids grades five through eight attended the clinic. First-year Blue Jays' head coach Wendy Davis, along with assistant coach Nicole Delano, and the rest of the USJ roster, hosted the event inside the Enfield Annex.
The two and a half hour clinic was divided into two sessions, with each session focusing on four stations—passing & shooting, dribbling, defense & rebounding, and layups. Two USJ players were in charge of each station, allowing them plenty of time to break down the strengths and weaknesses of each student-athlete, and work with them individually.
The clinic was met with positive feedback from the community. Kids who attended the clinic say they enjoyed the specific pointers they received in each of the stations. The Enfield Travel Basketball Association tells USJ they are already looking forward to having the Blue Jays back again next year.
"It's important to give back," said Davis. "If we can teach young players the sport we love, then we are doing our job."
USJ women's basketball will be back in action on Saturday, January 19 in another GNAC battle on the road at Norwich, beginning at 1:00 p.m. The Blue Jays will play their next home game Tuesday, January 29 versus Simmons at 7:00 p.m.
