Harold Warren’s Girls Futbol Academy UAB is designed for the highly competitive soccer player. Training will focus on both technical and tactical aspects of the game. Nightly games will allow players to compete and be evaluated by the coaching staff.
Our goal is to show players the level and drive necessary to compete in intercollegiate athletics, while allowing them to take their game to a whole new level.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham is one of remarkable growth in size, quality, reputation and impact. In a little more than four decades, UAB has transformed from its modest beginnings as an extension center into a doctoral research university and academic medical center.
UAB at Birmingham (UAB) traces its roots to the 1859 founding of the Medical College of Alabama and the 1936 opening of the Birmingham Extension Center of The University of Alabama.
Today, UAB is a comprehensive urban university with a nationally recognized academic health center. UAB is the only public, four-year degree granting university in the state’s largest metropolitan area. UAB is the largest research institution in the state of Alabama and the university is the largest employer in Birmingham.
