Ohio Kicking Camp & College Exposure Event

December 2020 
10:00AM – 6:00PM
Youngstown State University Indoor Facility

Ohio kicking camp enrollment is limited due to space constraints. Football field is only 120 yards by 54 yards. Sign up early to save your spot.

  • YSU indoor facilityOhio 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 one day 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 Exposure Event: Sophomore, junior and senior kickers and punters 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. Most colleges ask kicking coaches for their top performers. Kick well, and we will get your name and statistics to colleges.
  • 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.
  • Athletes who are punters-only check in at 4:30 PM. There are usually 5 or less pure punters who work on developing their skills with one of our outstanding coaches for hour and half.
  • High school coaches are welcome to attend the clinic for free and learn from coach Filipovic and his staff.
