The Kicking Coach kicking camps for high school and middle school athletes take place all year around in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, and Indiana. Kicker and punter private lessons for athletes of all ages are available in Chicago and Akron, Ohio.

At every kicking camp:

  1. We teach high school and middle school kickers and punters how to develop professional-level skills, and how to train effectively on their own.
  2. We evaluate athletes’ current skill level for potential and college scholarship referrals (high school sophomores, juniors and seniors).

  • COVID 19 UPDATE: All kicking camps from May 17th through August 2nd are still scheduled to take place. Social distancing and group size limitations will not be an issue since our camps are small events already. If host facilities cancel our events, we will find a nearby facility that will host it.
  • Remote training is available by detailed video analysis with a follow up phone call. Details HERE.
  • Coach Filipovic is still training athletes in 1 on 1 setting. These are contact free training sessions at Lane Tech High School (Chicago), with additional precautionary measures implemented (zero contact, 5 yard distance minimum between coach and athlete, online payment processing).
  • Iowa Kicking Camp scheduled to take place on March 28th at William Penn University Indoor has been rescheduled for May 17th. If weather cooperates, we will plan on doing part of the event outdoors. If situation changes due to the virus, we will adjust as needed.
