The Mike Getman Soccer Camp is led by an elite team of coaches and players, and is here to elevate your game to the next level. Every year we bring in great coaches who will teach you the game while increasing your confidence and excitement to learn. This years staff will be our biggest and best ever. Our fields, residence halls, cafeterias, and recreation center are all state of the art. We know that with the combination of a great coaching staff, great facilities, and our exciting curriculum, each camper will improve their game while enjoying a fabulous camp experience.
During Coach Mike Getman’s career as the Head Coach at UAB, he has been named Conference “Coach of the Year” 3 times, with the additional honor of Conference USA “Coach of the Decade”.
Coach Getman has brought together a staff of top college and scholastic coaches as well as some of UAB’s top players, to assemble an elite soccer skills and development camp. See the list of UAB Players in the Pros, many of which you will see back at Camp coaching campers in the summer. Your soccer skills and overall playing ability will improve with the experience & knowledge of our coaching staff. Getting to meet and work with college coaches is a great way to see what different Universities have to offer and a great way to showcase your talent.
Many current college players also work at camp. This can be very motivational for young players and it is a great way for the high school age players to gauge themselves. Check out the list of College Coaches working at our camps this summer.
“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.”
“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.”
“My high school team and I chose to come back to Coach Getman’s soccer camp this year because of the great effect that it had on the boys season last year (the most successful in school history). The highly qualified college coaches at the camp benefited the boys skills, tactics, and unity, and I was able to learn a lot as well. I can already see how our second year at camp is inspiring the team to achieve new heights next year. I highly recommend the UAB Soccer Camp for high school teams!”
