I went online today to register and it shows as full. I’m not surprised though, as we have talked up your program to my son’s peers and their parents. –Day Camp Parent
“My sons have always enjoyed your camps and my oldest got recruited from another school at one of your Id camps, so always a positive experience!” –R.E. -Huntsville AL
“My son had a great time. I was not sure at first on sending him, since he is only 10 years old. I think the camp gave him more confidence playing against older kids from various states. Thanks for everything.”
“I felt the camp was very well organized and the check-in process was totally smooth. I like how there was a staff member at every turn to help us find our way. Thanks so much!”
“Soccers Best academy in Winnipeg, Canada has been sending athletes to the UAB Soccer Camp for the past several years. We are extremely pleased with how well our athletes are taken care of while attending the ID camp. Our athletes always have a great experience. We would recommend this camp to any athletes looking to have a great soccer experience” —Team Manager in Winnipeg, Canada (2016)
“Overall the 2 years that my son has attended have been very positive experiences! This year he brought a friend from the school team with him and next year will try to encourage more to come.”
“My son had a great time attending your camp and is already looking forward to next year. The coaches were great and having the opportunity to train and compete with competitive players was rewarding.”
“…the camp met my expectations going into it. To improve my speed of play, work on my finishing, and help with quicker decision making when in procession of the ball. Thanks Coach Getman for a job well done.” —Residential Camper
“My son really enjoyed the camp and got a lot out of playing the older players. He said the food was good. Needed to take more showers! Ha! I think it was an overall positive experience!”
“This was my sons first year of attending the camp and he is already wanting to go back!! He loved every minute of it! Thank you.”
“This summer my son attended his seventh consecutive soccer day camp at UAB and will soon return to residential soccer camp for the second year in a row. Across the board, UAB soccer camp coaches, staff, trainers, and programming are excellent. My son has honed his technical skills and gained valuable insight from college players into the game he loves. The Mike Getman Soccer camps are not summer childcare options; they are top-notch opportunities for training and competing. The skills assessments my son has been provided at the end of each camp are honest critiques of his weaknesses as a player that have given him specific ideas toward improvement in the targeted areas. I simply cannot say enough good things about the Mike Getman Soccer Camps” ——-A Birmingham Soccer Mom, Summer 2017
“My son attended your residential camp lst week and LOVED every minute of it! He loved his coach, the training, the demonstrations, the gams, the practice and the accommodations. Oh, and let’s not forget the food…what 15 year old is not impressed by an all you can eat buffet! He fells like he learned a great deal and improved his game and although he was exhausted when we arrive home, he says he wished it were much longer. He can’t wait to go back next year. As a parent, I want to applaud you on a very well run camp.”
