Summer Specialists Camps

Summer Specialists Camps

Most high school coaches will admit that they know very little about the technique of kicking and punting. High School kicking specialists get placed on a field during practice and are asked to kick on their own. Lots of times they don’t know what to practice, how many balls to kick, or what to correct when they are unsuccessful. The Summer Specialists Camp is a perfect way for kickers and punters to gain kicking technique and strategy for their upcoming high school season.

During this camp you will learn…

  • How do kick the ball higher and farther on kickoffs
  • How to become more accurate on field goals
  • How to become a better and more consistent punter
  • Strategies for onside kicks, directional kicks, and sky kicks
  • How to do a rugby punt & the popular “Aussie Punt”
  • How many kicks and punts to do during practice and before games
  • How to prepare yourself mentally for kicking in front of thousands of people

When I was in high school I went to a lot of different kicking camps and was thoroughly disappointed. I expected to get coached and discovered that the camp was more about rankings. If you are a beginning kicker you need to learn the basics first before worrying about competition. This camp will give you the necessary tools to be a successful high school kicker.

I have 22 kickers or punters who have signed MAJOR Division 1 scholarships in the past 6 years. The technique is proven and highly effective. Also, this camp will stay at an 8 to 1 kicker to coach ratio to make sure that each player gets enough coaching. You will get coached by college kickers at big universities like Tennessee, Ole Miss, Wisconsin, MTSU, and Mississippi State. We will work hard but we will also have some fun. On the second day of camp we will end with a competition and winners for each age group.
