The 2015 Kicking World Invite-Only Showcase brought close to 50 of the country’s best prep kickers & punters from 15 states to beautiful San Diego, CA on Saturday & Sunday, December 5-6, 2015. Kicking World’s top specialists were hand-picked by Coach Brent and the staff and out of the over 1,000 students we trained in 2015, only a little over 100 were invited to this prestigious event. Showcase participants squared off for a weekend to showcase their talent and help legitimize their kicking and punting ability.

The Event helped kicking recruits showcase their abilities to college football programs. College football coaches were in attendance in person as well as several dozens of college football coaches streamed the Showcase Event live on YouTube, as did thousands of other families, friends & Kicking World fans.

On Day 2 we had ‘Elimination competitions’ meaning students had to hit a certain minimum criteria (i.e. distance and hang-time on kickoffs and punts) in order to advance to the next round. As the competition went on, more and more students were eliminated until finally we only had 1 student per class year. We then went until there was only 1 overall champion.
