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. At preseason camps, we also focus on teaching the execution of game scenario kicks - directional kicking, working with snappers and holders, etc.
  • 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.   
  • We chart and evaluate younger athletes for self-assessment and comparison with peers.    
  • Older athletes are charted and evaluated for college potential and referrals.    
  • Showcase video option: Let us create a high quality skills video that highlights your strengths. It includes statistics from the event, video of best kicks, and expert evaluation. College coaches love it because it shows 1) Mechanics, 2) Leg Strength, and 3) Evaluation of an expert in the field. You will receive the video within 3 days of the event. Video production cost: $100 for Kickers or Punters only, $150 for Combos. When signing up, indicate that you wish to add a showcase video.

*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.
