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

Both weekend camps 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 at these camps 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. These camps are for both field players and goalkeepers.

Winter Elite ID Camp I will be held at BBVA Compass Field on the UAB campus. Located at the corner of 9th Ave South and 11th Street South (just off of I-65).

Winter Elite ID Camp II (NEW) will be held at the Burbank Soccer Complex in Baton Rouge, LA
