Basketball Camp 2016


The University of Illinois is once again hosting its summer camp and excited to again be in state-of-the-art dormitories across the street from the gym! This summer the Illini will be offering our Individual Basketball Skills Camp.  At The University of Illinois, our goal for these summer camps is to continue to develop wheelchair sports. We would love to assist in the development and improvement of your wheelchair sport programs. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact The Wheelchair Athletics Office at or call (217) 244-6083.

This is our our most popular camp. It is a great camp for beginners and/or athletes who want to fine tune their foundational wheelchair basketball skills. Instruction at this camp will be provided by the U of I coaching staff and student-athletes. This will provide the best hands-on experience for your developing athletes. Athletes attending are expected to be physically and mentally prepared for the 8 hours a day training that this type of camp presents. For males and females of ages 12-19.

In conjunction with Individual Camp, our Coaches Clinic will review the basic skills of wheelchair basketball and move forward with more intermediate concepts. Coaches will also have an opportunity to coach their own team at Individual Camp. Again, if you have 5 or more athletes from your team attend any Illinois sports camp, the camp fee for the clinic will be waived.
