Learning how to punt a football can be one of the most frustrating things for younger kickers and punters. Why? Mainly because there are so many moving parts in a punt, as opposed to a field goal kick where you just have to step up and let it rip.
In a punt, you have to worry about things like…
Making sure your:
-Receiving of the snap is clean
-Drop is perfect
-Foot-to-ball contact is spot on
-Steps are correct
-Grip on the ball is correct
-Follow through is in-line
Now imagine making all of this happen in roughly 2 seconds, all while you have the opposing team running after you to steal your lunch. Now take it a step further and imagine doing all of this while receiving a bad snap in the pouring rain. What do you do?
These are all things that we touch on at The Kicking Unit’s kicking and punting lessons and camps. Our goal is to get you ready for the bad snaps and make sure you are taking all the right steps in order to be a successful specialist. In our mind, being game ready includes thinking of every possible scenario. Of course, we would all like to have the perfect snap every single time, but the reality is this is highly unlikely unless you are playing at a big time D1 college or in the NFL.
You have to be a well-oiled machine in order to make the complete process as smooth as they do on Sundays in the NFL. Overall, your success as a punter or kicker is determined by the foundation you set when you first start kicking/punting and by how hard you want to work.
At The Kicking Unit we work on making these steps of a punt as effortless as possible for you. We instill the mindset it takes to become the best specialist possible.
Coach Cameron and Staff breakdown each and every step of the punting and kicking process for you so that you fully understand the mechanics. Starting with an initial lesson we see what you can do and then make a game plan from there.
For beginners, we have kicking and punting lesson plans to help speed up your overall development as a specialist.
If you already have a pretty good grasp on punting and kicking we simply work with what you are doing and make adjustments from there. We will make recommendations on areas where we think you could improve and provide you skill specific drills to help you get to where you need to be.
Whatever level of expertise you are currently at we can help you. The Kicking Unit has worked with kickers, punters and snappers of all ages and skill levels and we know what it takes to get to the next level.
