Want your student athletes to get a taste of what it’s like to be coached by an NCAA Division III coach? That opportunity exists right here in Arlington. Marymount University offers nine sports camps for kids between the ages of 6 and 13, including baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, volleyball and swimming (some camps are single-sex; others are coed). “Campers learn side-by-side with collegiate coaches and players,” says Jamie Reynolds, the university’s director of athletics. Each daylong camp includes pool time in the afternoon, but “most kids’ favorite thing is eating in the college cafeteria,” she adds with a laugh. Many campers return year after year, and a few have gone on to enroll at Marymount and play on one of the university’s D-III sports teams.
