Coach Filipovic is a kicking coach to NFL kickers, college athletes, high school athletes, and beginners. Key to any kicker’s greatness is focused practice on the edge of his abilities. Skill-building must be challenging but not impossible to achieve. Coach Filipovic has been kicking and coaching kickers for over 25 years. His ability to recognize kickers’ tendencies and accelerate their learning comes from his long experience in the world of kickers and a degree in education. If he is not the best kicking coach that you have ever worked with, we would love to know why.
SUMMER PRIVATE TRAINING
Coach Filipovic is available on most weekdays. Weekend availability is rare due to travel for camps around the Midwest.
FALL PRIVATE TRAINING
With school and football schedules, it is recommended that kickers schedule training for either Sundays or Saturdays. Some coaches allow kickers to leave football practice early to meet with their kicking coach. Coach Filipovic is available on most days.
WINTER PRIVATE TRAINING
Coach Filipovic has access to Chicago Fire Dome (3626 N Talman Ave, Chicago, IL 60618) Monday through Friday until 4:30 PM for indoor training. There is a $10 facility fee added for indoor training.
If you are looking for weekend training, it has to be outdoors. Any day over 30 degrees without much wind and without precipitation is good enough.
