About the Camp:

  • Recommended Age: 12 - 19. Average age is 14-17.
  • Skills taught: Field Goals, Kickoffs, Punts. We teach the most efficient techniques that are used by NFL and top college kickers, while allowing room for individual nuances.
  • Camper skill level varies from the first time kickers to more experienced kickers with several years of camp and playing experience. We tailor instruction to the individual.   
  • College Showcase: We chart, film and evaluate athletes for college referrals. Athletes who are going into their junior and senior seasons of high school will complete our standardized testing workout. Top charts and film from the workout are sent to every college in the country. If an athlete underperforms (subjective to his skill level), for his benefit, we advise not have his film sent out to schools.
  • We teach execution of game kicks - directional kickoffs, onside kicks, coffin corner punts, hurried punts, kicking field goals in bad weather, etc.
  • Parents are welcome to stay and observe instruction and evaluation.

*Many athletes shy away from punting because it is a more difficult skill. This is exactly why there are significantly more opportunities for playing time and college scholarships for punters and combos than kickers-only. Please consider learning the skill of punting. Nobody is born a good punter. Every great punter had to start somewhere.
