Our Winter ID Camp is designed to expose serious soccer players to college coaches while at the same time, helping to develop their game. Our UAB Coaching Staff is joined by coaches from all levels of College Soccer. Year after year, our campers are recruited in to the college ranks.

This weekend mini camp will focus on attacking skills and tactics to give you and your team the edge. All players are expected to be in good shape and prepared for a vigorous weekend of activity. This is a high intensity training environment.

Our most advanced campers will spend much of their time playing with and against our current and former college players. There is no better way to test your skills against the best. If you are thinking about playing in college, this camp will help you see your strengths and weaknesses. Many of our current UAB players attended our Winter ID Camp when they were in high school.  The schedule of this camp also includes a college talk.  A question and answer sessions where you can find out about the recruiting process; how to get a spot playing college soccer. Enrollment is very limited, allowing for individual attention from the college coaches and campers are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. The coaching staff will be on hand after each session to answer questions one-on-one.  This camp is for both field players and goalkeepers.
