The Little Illini Day Camp was designed to introduce youngsters to the fundamental skills of basketball. Instruction will include the components of dribbling, passing, shooting and defense. The teaching will be done through staff demonstrations, small groups and individual attention. General rules of the game will also be emphasized. Groups will be arranged by age in order to enhance learning.

The Little Illini Day Camp is a great way for young girls to learn about the game of basketball in a fun, supportive atmosphere. It's also a great opportunity to make new friends and to get to know the Fighting Illini palyers and staff! We hope to see you this June for a fun week of basketball.
