Football by its nature is a fierce and competitive sport.

    In the last 20 years we have seen a dramatic rise in the

    year end statistics of both Placekickers and Punters.

  

    Several factors have contributed to the on field success

    of these "Specialists".  By today's standards the kicker 

    and punter are far more athletic than in years past.

    Often times they excel at other positions on their team

    as well as being multiple sport athletes at their school.


    Kicker specific training has been adopted at all levels 

    in the quest to be the best you can be.  While virtually

    non existent in the past the personal kicking coach has

    become  a staple for many high school kickers and

    punters looking to hone their skills and compete at the

    next level.


    Kickers and punters do not train in the same fashion

    as the wide receiver or defensive lineman, either on

    or off the field.  Their craft requires sound mechanics

    practiced in a repetitive format to build the confidence

    needed to perform on game day.


    Basic fundamentals are taught through a variety of

    drills and exercises to enforce the "Muscle Memory"

    connection whereas the athlete simply performs their

    skill without significant thought.  Video review is also

    available to analyze each fragment of the kickers

    technique in order to detect small inconsistencies not

    detected by the naked eye.  Precise evaluation of video

    post lesson  affords kicker and parent an opportunity

    to examine the performance of the athlete  and allows

    the coach to address the specific tendencies of each

​    specialist while suggesting ways in which to improve.   


    Where can a parent find this type of individualized

    tutoring for their kicker or punter?
