ARLINGTON, Texas – The UT Arlington volleyball program hosted their annual summer camp July 15-18 at the Maverick Activities Center.
"Our summer camps are a great way to reach out to the community and get athletes excited about volleyball as a sport, but also about UT Arlington and our program," head coach Diane Seymour said. "Our assistant coaches and players do an excellent job wiht a wide variety of ages and skill levels."
The 2013 UTA volleyball camp consisted of a morning advanced position session offering training for setters, hitters and defensive specialists. The afternoon camp session was divided into general and elite skill levels. The Maverick volleyball program had nearly 100 participants for both sessions for this year's camp.
The UTA volleyball team will also host a free clinic for the Dallas-Fort Worth Special Olympics from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday, July 27 at College Park Center sponsored by Papa John's Pizza to conclude their 2013 summer camp slate.
"The Special Olympics is a great organization and has a long standing relationship with UT Arlington, but I think this is the first volleyball clinic we have hosted," Seymour said. "The assistant coaches and our players are looking forward to working with these eager athletes. It’s a chance to connect with a whole new group of volleyball fans for our program and the fact that there are over 100 participants for this clinic is very exciting.”
