Kicking/Punting Practice Sessions – 90 minutes of Kicking

Sessions are intended for athletes of all skill levels who are looking to continue to improve their skills all year around. Coach Filipovic coaches the sessions. Athletes will receive tons of individual attention in a structured instructional setting – focusing on their specific areas that need improvement. During these kicking sessions, athletes can expect to take about 60 – 80 kicks. On field video analysis is used frequently.


  • Every session consists of 1) Kicking warm-up drills, 2) Full kicking with instruction from coach Filipovic
  • Every athlete should bring kicking shoes, field goal block, kickoff tee, holder, and few footballs. We will have equipment and footballs for athletes to borrow if needed.
  • Plan on arriving 10 to 15 minutes early. Put your cleats on and loosen up a bit on your own without a ball – stretch, do some light jogging, move your hips around a bit, etc.
  • COST: $100 per session
