Iowa Kicking Camp and Showcase
April 24th 2021
*due to risk of COVID-19, April 24th 2021 event will be held outdoors
- Preferred camper age: 12 to 18. Most athletes are in 14-16 year age group.
- Skills taught: Effective mechanics for kicking Field Goals, Kickoffs, and Punts; Long snapper technique and training.
- This is a one day skill-building and evaluation kicking camp for kickers and kicker/punter combos who are looking to get the most out of the off-season.
- COLLEGE EXPOSURE EVENT. Sophomore, junior and senior kickers and punters will have an opportunity to get evaluated for college referrals. Every athlete goes through a standardized age-appropriate evaluation test.
- At every kicking camp, our top priority is to teach kickers and punters how to train and improve while kicking on their own. There are no kicking coaches on middle school, high school, or college football teams. When your high school coach gives you couple footballs and tells you to “go practice”, you need to know… How to kick? How much to kick? How often to kick? What to tell your snapper and holder? How to make adjustments for different conditions? Etc.
- High school seniors will learn how to kick field goals off the ground, and get final/ last chance evaluation for college referrals. “Late bloomer” kickers get overlooked because most colleges have their lists of high school prospects finalized prior to the start of kicker’s senior season. If you got pretty good toward the end of your high school career, we need to know how good you are and if you are looking to kick in college.
- This full day event is for kickers and kicker/punter combo athletes. Punters only should plan on arriving at 4:30 PM for 90 minute punting session. Cost for punters only only is $100. Sign up like everyone else and put down $50 deposit. Bring the remaining balance with you at 4:30 PM on the day of the event.
- LONG SNAPPERS should visit Coach Nolan Owen’s website HERE for details and sign up. Coach Nolan Owen is an accomplished former division 1 snapper who is one of the top long snapping coaches in the country with numerous students in college and pros.
