ARLINGTON, Texas - The UT Arlington women's basketball program held its annual summer camp this past weekend.
The Mavericks were host to 60 campers who participated in the elite camp. and 13 teams that took part in the team camp.
Team camp consisted of high school and Amateur Athletic Union teams who were broken up into pools, and played round robin within the pool and were placed into two brackets.
"It was great. We were excited for the first year," UT Arlington coach Krista Gerlich said. "I thought the elite camp went great. All the campers were really enthusiastic and really impressed with our facilities. Our staff and our athletes did a great job of running it. It was a great start for camps and even for recruiting. We had several recruits that were campers this year so that's good."
Camp also gives the current Maverick players a chance to work with their new head coach, as well as how to step into the coaching role themselves.
"They did a great job, and it's so good for them to have to teach it because then they understand what it looks like and what we're trying to get. It's just a great teaching tool," Gerlich said.
