Join Kicking World in Austin, Texas for our 5th annual Invite-Only National Showcase Event held at Round Rock HS’s Dragon Stadium (seats 9,000)! Watch Day 2 LIVE on YouTube! The Showcase is open to 9th Grade through 12th Grade kickers, punters & snappers who have earned an invitation (see below) in person at a Kicking World Camp or Private Lesson during our 2018 season; no exceptions. This event will help maximize your exposure and get you noticed. 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 National 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 recap 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 (kickingworld.com/live) and available for anyone to watch. NCAA rules prohibit FBS level coaches from attending the event in-person, however, some levels – such as select FCS, D2 and D3 schools are allowed to attend the event. All coaches will be invited, and many will tune-in live. This is a tremendous opportunity for you to get noticed. Over the last 4 years of our invite-only National Showcase, over 25 offers were received within 2 weeks following this event!
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 Southwest Airlines if you can as they allow you to change your flight without any fees.
Hotel: We have negotiated a very aggressive $99/night at the brand new Towneplace Suites Austin/Northwest Lakeline for all Showcase participants. This special rate includes a nice modern room (your choice of 1 or 2 beds), free parking, WiFi, a beautiful outdoor pool with BBQ grills and fire pit, 24-hour fitness center, full kitchen in each room, and complimentary breakfast. We’ve also arranged free transportation to/from camp each day, included in the rate! The rate is valid for Thurs-Mon night. You’re close to all the great things Austin has to offer – Top Golf and the Domain (shopping, restaurants, etc.) are 12 minutes south, and Downtown Austin, Barton Springs Pool, and Lady Bird Lake only 20 minutes south. 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 like Uber, or the Austin Metro Rail (a close walk from hotel), you may want to rent a car. We recommend either National or Enterprise. Feel free to use the Kicking World corporate code of ‘XZB3721’ when booking with Enterprise to obtain our preferred rate.
Other Details: A more thorough hour by hour / daily camp itinerary email will be sent approximately 2 weeks before camp. On Friday night there will be an optional ‘kickoff party’ at Coach Brent’s place from 7:00pm-8:30pm, which includes tons of food, drinks, games & fun. This is right next door to the Towneplace Suites, so you can walk over! Any campers coming by themselves without an adult will need to call the hotel for a credit card authorization form, and Coach Brent can help you get checked in. Full Camp Logistics & Details will be sent out as we lead up to the camp.

Secure your spot at camp with just a $100 deposit, or pay in full ($400). This special invite-only camp includes a custom Under Armour uniform ($100 value)! To receive a ‘custom’ Under Armour camp uniform, you must register and pay at least the deposit by October 5, 2018. If signing up after this date, you will still get a uniform, but we may not be able to get your name on the back in time. If your HS football team continues deep into playoffs and you end up having a playoff game conflict for Day 1 (Saturday), you will still be expected to attend Day 2 (Sunday). For any cancellations or no shows, no refund is offered and your uniform will be forfeited. Detailed Camp Information will be e-mailed to all campers approximately 1 month and 2 weeks before the camp date. Be sure to look for these e-mails which includes check-in location, daily schedule & itinerary, kickoff party details & important notes.
