Weightlifting

Cycle

The Movin’ Mavs program has 3 hand cycles available for our athletes to cross train and also compete in road racing events.  

The DFW metroplex area offers opportunities to compete and get out in the community just about every weekend for the athletes who are interested, and our partnership with US Paralympics allows us to send athletes who have an interest in competitive cycling the opportunity to attend training camps at the National level.

Swimming

Athletes who attend UT Arlington have access to the swimming pools to train in competitive swimming or just to use swimming as a cross training tool for other sports.  

In the summer of 2011 our first swimmers will compete at the Endeavor Games in Edmund, OK.  Grant funding from the Neilson Foundation allows us to partially fund travel and training costs for our swimmers.

Weightlifting

Movin’ Mavs athletes follow an individualized weightlifting program designed to meet the sport and competition needs of each athlete.  

Athletes who are interested in competitive weightlifting can work with our Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.) to develop training programs that will help them reach personal fitness and individual competitive interests.

Tennis

The Movin’ Mavs Wheelchair Tennis Program was resurrected in 2008 with six players attending the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Championships in Mobile, AL along with other tournaments. Jeff Sale, former USA National Junior Team member and UT Arlington graduate (currently working on MBA at UTA) serves as the player/coach for the team.  

In the past three seasons the Movin’ Mavs have had players win the Tier 2 National Titles at the ITA event, Doubles National Champions as well as A Division and B Division singles titles (and A Division Doubles title) at the Cajun Classic International Tournament in 2011 in Baton Rouge.

Partial scholarships and out of state tuition waivers are available for students interested in attending UT Arlington to play Wheelchair Tennis.
