Join Kicking World in Austin, Texas for our 4th annual Invite-Only Showcase Event held at Westlake Chaparral Stadium. Watch Day 2 LIVE on YouTube! The Showcase is open to 8th Grade through 12th Grade kickers, punters & snappers who have earned an invitation (see below) at a Kicking World Camp or Private Lesson. This event will help maximize your exposure and get you get noticed. Watch Day 2 LIVE on YouTube! You must receive an invitation from Coach Brent or one of the Kicking World staff (at a camp or private lesson) in order to attend; no exceptions. At each of the past year’s events, several participants received scholarship offers shortly after camp, and many underclassmen were ‘discovered’ and began to receive interest from various college football teams. View last year’s Showcase Recap with stats/results.
Our 2-Day Showcase Event is focused on helping you get your ability validated, achieve maximum exposure, and increase your options for playing at the next level. This special kicking camp will help you understand the ins and outs of the college recruiting process and provide you with a definite edge in your journey of making it to college. Our event is a tremendous opportunity for you to compete with/against the best Kicking World specialists from around the country; and get noticed. It’s also timed perfectly to help seniors get their name out there with 2 months to spare before national signing day.
If you want to make your mark as one of the best kickers & punters in the country, you need to be at this camp. We will have multiple competitions throughout the two days of camp. A detailed write-up of the weekend’s event will be posted throughout all our social media sources, as well, all competition results and a re-cap will be personally e-mailed by Coach Brent to every D1, D1AA, D2 & D3 coach in the country. Day 2 of camp is also streamed live on our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/kickingworld) and available for anyone to watch. NCAA rules prohibit FBS level coaches from attending the event to use as a recruiting tool, however some levels – such as select FCS, D2 and D3 schools are allowed to attend the event. All coaches will be invited, and each year a few coaches show up to watch in person. This is a tremendous opportunity for you to get noticed.
Because this is an accelerated camp designed for our best specialists, we will not be spending much, if any time on the 101s of technique/fundamentals like a normal KW camp. The Kicking World Showcase Event is a great platform for our better specialists to come to Austin, Texas for a weekend and compete against other Hot Prospects and advanced KW students; and make your mark as the top dog in your class. Students not yet already on the Hot Prospect List, but attending our Showcase, will receive extra consideration (but still based on performance) to be added to the List.
How to Earn an Invitation
Coach Brent and the Kicking World staff hand select students from Kicking World camps and lessons to receive an invitation to our Showcase Event. All existing Hot Prospects receive an automatic invite. Increase your chances of earning an invite by winning one of our Field Goal, Kickoff, Punt or Snapping competitions at any Kicking World camp. Invitations are very exclusive and last camp season, less than 10% of the camper base earned an invitation! It’s not just about distance and hang-time… you have to display proper form & fundamentals, overall consistency, and must perform under pressure.
Airfare: We recommend booking your Flight early through our 2 preferred airlines: Southwest Airlines or American Airlines. It’s a good idea to purchase travel insurance ($15-$20) if flying with anyone besides Southwest (who allows you to change or cancel reservations without any fees). In addition, if your team is still in the playoffs during the Showcase weekend, we will offer you a refund (minus $100 for the camp uniform that you will still get)! No refunds/uniforms will be provided for cancellations or no shows for any other reason.

This special rate includes a nice modern room with 2 Queen Beds, free breakfast for (4), free WiFi and free parking. The hotel has an onsite restaurant, lounge, gym and beautiful pool. This Marriott property is located in the center of town for a close drive to camp, Downtown, The Domain (restaurants, shops & nightlife), Top Golf, Lake Austin, golf and all that the great city of Austin has to offer! Rate is Available for Thurs-Mon Night. Only a limited number of rooms are available at this incredible rate. Book early!
Rental Car: While it is possible to get around town with a ride share service, your stay will be more enjoyable and more affordable if you rent a car. We recommend choosing Enterprise Rent-A-Car (reserve online and enter in ‘XZB3721’ for our preferred rate). You can book directly online or by calling their 800# with the Kicking World corporate number.
