    My son is going to Alabama's football camp

    So this will be my son's first year going to Alabama's football camp. We are super excited and hoping this will be one of many times he gets coached at Bama!

    Re: My son is going to Alabama's football camp

    My son went last year for his first camp. We're going back this year.

    It's an excellent camp and he'll receive a ton of good instruction. But, make no mistake, they work those boys. It's not all fun and games.

    Coach Saban is in attendance for about 90% of it, which speaks to him and how much he enjoys coaching. Other big school coaches take pics with the campers and you never see them again.

    Be prepared to be hot. I'd recommend a pair of compression shorts for each day of practice. Wearing soggy "tighty whities" wouldn't be very comfortable. In his camp bag, I'd recommend an extra shirt or two for each day. He will sweat A LOT.

    It's a wonderful experience for these boys, and a lifetime memory.

    Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Thanks for the advice. As it gets closer I may have some questions.

    I think the price is pretty reasonable considering they are learning from the greatest coach of their lifetime.

    I took my cousin a few years ago and he liked it a lot. I played golf everyday so, I didnít watch the practices but, he is a QB and told me they split up the QBís into about 5 groups. He was in the top group with Cornwall and 3 others. Coach Nuss was with them 100% of the time. Saban also spent time with them. He said the other QB groups had the HS coaches.

    My son will be in the 13 year old range. June 10-12th. If anyone has a kid attending that camp let me know if you wanna have the boys room together.

    I think i know the answer since this isnt a closed practice....but are parents permitted to watch the camp with their kids?

    My son is 7 and plays flag football right now. He would love this someday!!

    Parents are allowed to watch. They have limited room in our group though. You aren't allowed in the dorms etc. Check the link above. There are a lot of rules lol

    PLEASE have your son in decent shape and ready for constructive criticism. This is NOT Day Camp, it is demanding, hard work, blood, sweat and tears. TRUST me. Your son may puke a few times as well. It's not for the faint of heart. Be prepared for some tough periods and he will be encouraged to never quit but get better on every snap. This is not a scare tactic, just a fact.
