The Southwestern Athletic Conference recently held its annual SWAC Council of Presidents and Chancellors Spring meeting. A wide range of agenda items were discussed at the meeting, listed below are some of the highlights of new legislation that was passed for the 2024-25 academic year.    

The league voted to expand the number of teams that will participate in the SWAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments from eight to ten teams on both sides for the 2025 tournaments. The 2026 SWAC Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments will feature all 12 men’s and women’s teams in action.

A new scheduling format for the sports of men’s and women’s basketball was also approved for the 2024-25 academic year. Women’s basketball league contests will be played on Thursdays and Saturdays with men’s basketball games set for Saturdays and Mondays.

In the sport of football, the Conference Office will provide cutting edge technology via sideline tablets beginning with the upcoming 2024 season. Teams will have the option of using tablets to view in-game video. Tablets can be distributed on the sideline, locker room and coaches’ booths to study the game broadcast feed as well as camera angles from a team’s sideline and end zone. The tablets can be viewed by all team personnel but cannot connect to other devices, project larger images or provide data and analytics.
