Michigan Kicking Camp
December 29th 2023
10 AM – 5 PM
Grand Valley State University, Allendale, MI
THIS CAMP SELLS OUT EVERY YEAR
- Michigan kicking camp is open to athletes who are between ages of 12 and 18. Majority of kickers who attend are between 14 and 16 years old. Skill levels range between beginners and experienced kickers with several years of kicking camp experience.
- This is a kicking skills development and evaluation event for specialists who are looking to get a head start on competition for the next football season. We will spend majority of the camp on field goals and kickoffs. We will cover punting technique, go through punting drills and off-season preparation.
- College Prospect Evaluation: High school specialists will have an opportunity to get evaluated for college referrals. At every kicking camp, kickers go through a standardized evaluation session to determine their current ability. Top performers will get invited to the exclusive Top Kicker In America Event.
- 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.
- 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 coaches are welcome to attend the clinic for free and learn from coach Filipovic and his staff.
- Athletes who are punters only should not attend this event. All spring and summer camps are open for pure punters.
