ARLINGTON - The Movin' Mavs Adapted Sports program will offer new sport and recreation programs for students with disabilities starting with the fall semester.

Programs planned for the fall semester include swimming, indoor wheelchair soccer for both manual and power wheelchairs and introduction to wheelchair basketball.

Students with disabilities who are interested in these and other recreational sports programs can contact Doug Garner at dgarner@uta.edu for more information.
