Redbird Arena:

Home of the Illinois State Women's Basketball Camps


A cornerstone for the Illinois State Athletics program is beautiful Redbird Arena, which began operation in 1989. Many praise the arena, with a capacity of 10,200, for its excellent design, as the furthest seat from the floor is just 220 feet away.

Thank you for considering the Illinois State Redbird Womens Basketball Camp. It is our goal to make your camp experience entertaining, instructive and beneficial. Our Staff and select Redbird players are committed to promoting a fun and safe camp environment.


There is no better example of head coach Barb Smith and her coaching staffs ability to improve the skills of basketball players than the improvements Illinois State University womens basketball team has made throughout this current season. Illinois State Basketball Camps are designed to help each camper improve their skills through individual instruction and team concept building in a fun and competitive atmosphere.


Campers will benefit immensely by participating in many of the same skill development drills that the Illinois State coaching staff utilizes to improve the skills of current Redbird players. With the help of current players and an elite camp staff, each camper will receive individualized attention during drills, games and camp contests. In addition, our coaching staff takes great pride in helping each camper not only become a great player on the floor but off the floor as well. This is evident by the educational lectures done each day by our current Redbird coaches and players on things such as academics, respect and hard work.
