Facilities

UCA Strength & Conditioning Center

University of Central Arkansas’s new strength and conditioning center, attached to the Pepsi Americas Center, opened in 2012. There is an inside entrance connecting the facility with the Pepsi Center. The new facility contains office space for Robert Stiner, UCA strength and conditioning director, as well as restrooms and water fountains. The facility is outfitted with brand new, state-of-the-art equipment, including benches, machines and weights featuring UCA’s logo.

 

UCA Indoor Center

The UCA Indoor Center is a multi-million dollar project that serves as the Bears' indoor training facility. Completed in 2004, the structure houses a 60-yard synthetic turf playing surface that allows the team to work on all phases of instruction in inclement weather.

 
First Security Field at Estes Stadium

First Security Field at Estes Stadium is a 10,000-seat multi-purpose stadium in Conway, Arkansas. It is home to the Central Arkansas Bears football team, representing the University of Central Arkansas in the NCAA's Southland Conference. The facility opened in 1939. In 2007, university President Lu Hardin announced that corporate sponsorship had been secured for the stadium from a local bank. As a result, the formal title of the stadium is First Security Field at Estes Stadium. The stadium is named after Dan Estes, who coached the Bears from 1915 to 1932

Since joining the Southland Conference, the Bears have the league's highest home winning percentage, and regularly post overflow attendance numbers with many fans lining Bruce Street to watch the game from their tailgating areas.

Since the turf was installed prior to the 2011 season, The Stripes and Estes Stadium have become one of the most feared venues in the nation at the Division I FCS level, compiling a 15-2 record to date.
