FREE kicking and punting workshop

Why did I start this passion project?

High School Kickers and Punters have a hard time finding an expert speciality kicking and punting coach in their local area. They wanted to go to someone that can help improve their kicking and punting skills. The most common thing you hear from high school coaches that are looking for kickers and punters is to look for any soccer player to be their kicker and punter for their football team.  I saw the need and began networking with other kickers in my community.  I created a kicking and punting workshop in my community and that is how my passion project became a reality. I wanted to help younger kickers who are interested in kicking to let them know where to get help in mastering their kicking skills to become a kicking specialist. This also gave me a way to  give back to my community and to the many young aspiring specialists in my community.

So, are you an aspiring young kicker and punter? Are you between 10 to 16 years old? Then you need to take advantage of my FREE Kicking and Punting workshop. No experience needed, but the willingness to learn.

Together we will work on specific drills for each student to improve your natural style of kicking and tweaking the spots that need improvement. Remember trust yourself and don’t over think too much!


Getting power and distance with consistently following through with your kick!

Kickoff’s are one of those things where lots of kickers tend not to practice or even have time to do. Usually you’ll see kickers kick the Field Goal then run and get there tee without having any dry swings or small reps. Pre Game & Halftime is usually the only time in a game for you to get a couple reps in. That’s why I emphasize on the amount of good reps we do! I assist you on small drills that will improve and make kickoff’s a breeze. That way you won’t feel rushed or the need to panic during a game situation.

Punting is a very hard skill to master. That’s why we first work on your mechanics. You can do a lot of really cool things with punting such as downing punts, directional, rugby style, and many more. It all starts with your hands. Simple catching drills that a receiver typically goes through on a daily basis, we will implement into our training! Punting can become second nature with lots and lots of reps. Hitting a perfect spiral will be challenging, but if you stay true to your swing and style. Punting is made easy.
