While our camps are open to all skill levels (beginner, intermediate & advanced), we recommend camp participants have at least 1 year of kicking, punting, or snapping experience under their belt, and you must have competent motor skills & coordination.

Are your camps open to first-timers? General expectations of skill level & ages? Not age 13-19?

While our camps are open to all skill levels (beginner, intermediate & advanced), we recommend camp participants have at least 1 year of kicking, punting, or snapping experience under their belt, and you must have competent motor skills & coordination.

We use High School sized leather footballs at our 2-Day & 1-Day camps (ages 13-19), and smaller composite (rubber) footballs for our Youth camps (ages 9-12). If your skill level is more on the beginner side it is highly recommended that you add our Kicking and/or Punting DVD during the order checkout, and study (and try to practice/implement) Chapters 1-3 before attending camp.

A private lesson is more appropriate if you have never kicked, punted, or snapped before or have not held your own in at least a couple of years of soccer. (Feel free to email or text us a video or link to a video with 2-3 kicks and/or punts and we can advise you on the right camp. The video should be filmed from the side far enough away to have the kicker, ball flight, and field in view for the entire kick. Based on this video we can recommend the appropriate camp for you).

Not quite 13 years old yet?

If you are a mature/stronger 12-year-old that is experienced, we can possibly consider you, but please follow the video submission instructions above and do not sign up until we review your video for consideration. If you are only 9 to 11 years old we cannot get you into an ages 13-19 camp, no exceptions. You would need to look at our ‘Youth’ camps which are specifically for ages 9-12 (or young 13 year olds).

Having you in the right camp will help ensure that everyone has a great experience!
