This winter we started giving winter kicking clinics for specialists to have a spot to train over the winter. We were finding that kids were having trouble finding space at their own high schools to kicker and the local sports domes were often too crowded, so we started renting dome time for 1 hour training sessions. It was a great opportunity for specialists to work on fundamentals and get their swings going again, without having baseballs, frisbees and other objects flying by them. We had many of our instructors at the camps (Insert link to coaches) working on various aspects of the kicking & snapping game.
These are the remaining 5 winter training dates: Sat, Feb 25- 6-7 PM Vadnais Heights Sports Dome- For Punter, Kickoff & Snapper training
Sun, March 11- 1-2 PM Maple Grove SportsDome- For FG, Punter & Snapper training
Sun, March 25- 4-5 PM- Holy Angels Sports Dome- For K/P/LS
Sat, March 31- 6-7 PM- Holy Angels Sports Dome- For K/P/LS Sat, April 7- 4-5 PM- Plymouth Sports Dome- For K/P/LS
Here are a few examples of our last 2 clinics:
Jan 29- Video
Cost for lessons:
$50/person for small group lessons
$40/person if you bring your snapper to train
$10/person to come and kick on your own Payment can be made at the lesson

Hello everyone, I’ve received a number of emails over the last few weeks so I just wanted to shoot out an email that pertains to recruitment and things I feel that could help you. It’s a long email, but worth the read. This pertains mainly to high school athletes, but can be of value for college athletes (see the 4th bullet). If your son is an under classman, it might be worth the read to know what to expect when they become juniors & seniors. 1. Recruiting Options: There are a number of organizations out there that will probably contact you telling them that they can help your son get into college. If you get contacted let me, know who they are. Here are some good ones out there.
- a. NCSA Athletic Recruiting- seems to be the popular one out there and pretty legit. Their service is about $1000-2000+ but they claim to have a pretty high placement ratio. I know it’s pretty expensive, but possibly for the few thousand dollar investment, you could yield a $90,000+ 4 year scholarship. But before you commit, really try to find out how they promote your son; maybe what their placement ratio is for specialists; ask a list of past specialists they’ve placed; and even ask them for a reference that you can call and talk to a player or parent about their experience.
b. Me- I have a growing list of college coaches that I will also email on your behalf. I will do it for FREE. I’ve only be coaching specialists for 2 years, but I have 106 coaches right now between Div 1, 2, 3 that I can contact. If you have any coaches or schools in particular you are interested in, please let me know and I’ll help you out and write a letter of recommendation.
c. Tom Feely of Feely Kicking- I think he offers the best value for college exposure. He developed an email blasting service where he will send out a direct email to any college coaches of any division level for you. He’ll send out a bio, head shot, highlight film and kicking/punting/snapping resume. You pay $300 for any single division of football you want, and $50 for each additional division to want to target. You can even target just coaches in a particular conference. I trust Tom Feely in what he does. He ran a camp with me this summer, which some of you attended and we’ll continue doing a camp together in the future. For the cost of mailing out highlight films and postage, this beats all that cost. Last year when he developed it, he went 8 for 8 on getting kickers scholarships. I’m sure it’s hard to keep that ratio going, but impressive none the less. Here is a link to what he does. If you call him 813-205-5008 reference me, and he may give you a little discount or something, I’m not sure.http://feelykicking.com/videoblaster.asp2. Highlight Film-
a. Send it to me- Please email me your highlight film as you get it created. If you have film from last year, please send me the link. I've started emailing me college coaches about many of the Senior/Junior kickers I'm working with, and will try to do so on a monthly basis. So if you have any college you have particular interest in, I would be willing to email them as well. But you need to be active in the recruitment process yourself to reach out to the college coaches telling them you are interested in their program. Don’t just expect that every coach will start calling you because you were All Conference. Think of this like a Job Interview but for education. Be Proactive!!
b. List me as a Reference- If you want, you can list me as a reference on a slide of your highlight film. You can put my name, email, cell phone and website if you want. I will give positive feedback to any coach that contacts me, but also a real assessment, even on areas that can be improved on.
c. YouTube or Vimeo- Upload your highlight film to an online video site, like YouTube or Vimeo.com
d. Resume- Create a Kicking/Punting/Snapping resume. If you were all conference, all metro, player of the week for some football site, received a team award, list that, even if it was for the scout team. Now is the time you brag about yourself and not be humble.
e. Accolades- Email me all those accolades to, so I know how things worked out for you. So if I do email a coach on your behalf, I’m up to date on everything. I’ll also post it on my website on our “Honor Role” tab for more recognition if a coach checks out my site.
f. My Goals- My pay off in the end, is knowing that I gave it my all for you to reach your goals!
3. Links on Recruiting Tips (There are many links out there, but I feel this is very valuable advice)
a. Recruiting Realities - http://nationalcampseries.com/recruitingrealities.asp?eventid=1
b. Your Game Plan- http://nationalcampseries.com/yourgameplan.asp?eventid=1
c. NCAA Eligibility- http://nationalcampseries.com/ncaaeligibility.asp?eventid=1

f. The Importance of Online Video- http://nationalcampseries.com/onlinevideo.asp?eventid=1
g. Social Networks- http://nationalcampseries.com/socialnetworks.asp?eventid=1
4. NCS Super Camp
a. NCS Invitation- If you received an invitation, and I've gotten a few questions about this, so I figured I'd address it. For any of you planning to train over the winter and are looking for a top notch camp to attend. I'd recommend this camp in Orlando on Feb 18 & 19. I'll be there coaching, but the draw for you to this camp, is that you'll be able to learn kicking, punting and snapping instruction from current and past NFL Kickers and punters from all over the Nation, like Nick Novak (Chargers), Billy Cundiff (Ravens), and many more. See the link for the list of coaches. FYI- Nick Novak is the guy that taught me my favorite onside kick, that I've taught some of you. This is open to collegiate athletes as well. Obviously the Florida Camp is an investment, but NCS planned it over a weekend that has a Monday Holiday, to make things easier for travel, and Orlando is typically a lower cost destination area too. If you didn't receive an invitation yet, here is the link. http://nationalcampseries.com/supercamp.asp?eventid=1
b. Kohls- Kohls Kicking will also offer a kicking camp over the winter. They do a good job as well.
5. Special Teams Clothing- I’ll leave you on a Fun note…a. School Spirit? How about Special Teams Spirit?!?! This year another kicking instructor designed some really fun kicking, punting & snapping apparel. “4th Down Treads” created shirts, shorts and hats that are really comfortable to wear and designed specifically for us. If you are interested in anything, I'm able to get you a 10% discount. The promotional code is “STFA” and the website is http://www.4thdownthreads.com If you are still reading this email by this point, THANK YOU. I know it’s long, but it’s worth the read.

I've been able to connect with a few dome facilities to find out open dome times. The field directors seemed pretty upfront saying soccer teams consume many of the dome times. But if any of you have direct connections with the head football or soccer coaches of these facilities, sometimes they are able to pull some strings if you tell them that you and I will be training a few times together. So here are the initial options we can start with:
1. Velocity Sports Champlin- Saturdays at noon starting Jan 14. These lessons are 70 minutes in length and will be about $35 a lesson. Typically Velocity sets them up in 6 session packages. These lessons will be focused on the fundamentals (footwork, steps, etc) of kicking, punting, and long snapping. It's an indoor facility where we will only be able to kick about 20 yard FGs and punting into batting cages/ net drop downs. We'll also work on various core stability and footwork agility exercises. I've attached a photo of what it looked like last winter. This year they changed the flooring so I will be finalizing the plan for training here. Lessons will alternate weekly from FGs, KOs, Punts, etc. Long snapping will happen weekly at the same time as we can integrate snapping with kicking & punting. Velocity will soon be setting up an online registration link.
Domes- Typically you have to share space with everyone else that show up to use it. We technically don't need a lot of room though. These places don't have uprights, but have things like Soccer Goals we can aim for, etc. All Dome Lessons will be $50/ session. Lessons could range from a small group to private lesson, depending on who shows up. Please email me 2 days in advance if you plan to go.
1. Eden Prairie Dome- Open dome- Fridays 6-8 PM. We can start Dec 2. So we'll do lessons from 6-7 PM and carry it later if we need to. There is a $3 door charge to get in.
17185 Valley View Road, Eden Prairie, MN
2. Maple Grove Dome- Open dome- Wednesday 7-9 PM. Starts Dec 7. So we can do lessons from 7:30-8:30 PM and carry it later if we need to. There is a $5 door charge to get in. They only show the month of December for a schedule, but it appears that they will be running on Wednesdays.
9880 Fernbrook Lane N, Maple Grove, MN
3. Vadnais Heights- Still waiting to hear from manager of evening or weekend open domes.
4. Metrodome- If you all wanted to have some fun and kick at the dome. We can rent it at $500/ hour. We'd need to get like 8+ guys to commit to help cover the costs. Just thought I'd throw out this one for a good chuckle and see if there was any serious interests.
5. U of MN Bierman Fieldhouse- I'm still waiting for an answer, but if you have any connections, please ask. This is the only place with uprights, and I'm also looking into options for holding a winter camp and official NCS charting event.
6. There are other domes out there I haven't heard back from yet or still working on field options. I'll let you know as I hear from them.
**Times and practice options are subject to change depending on field availability at these domes.
This week we'll start at Eden Prairie on Friday and Maple Grove on Wednesday of Next week and go from there. Please RSVP a few days a head of time to let me know if you want to train. **You can always just go there to practice on your own, so give me some heads up if you want training.
If you have ins at other dome I haven't listed, please let me know and help me look into open dome times.
I will be out of town Dec 23- Jan 10.
If you have any questions, please ask.

As most teams reach the middle part of their season by now, I'm getting a number questions about mid-season training and college recruitment. I'll try to keep this short and sweet and will label each category so you can find information that pertains to your interests.
1. Injury Prevention-
As the season progresses, many athlete's bodies start to wear down. Especially if the athlete plays both soccer and football. As a kicker it's important to keep your legs as fresh as possible. As the weather gets colder, keeping flexible, is also important. Here are a few things I recommend. 1) stretch before and after practice. Try to get out to the practice field early enough to spend at least 5 minutes stretching. Then stretch after practice. Don't worry that most of your teammates leave right away without stretching, it's YOUR body that you are caring for, and you want to perform that best that you can. 2) Use the team ice baths. As cold as they may seem, TRUST ME, it works. In college, I use to wear out my hip flexor and lose power in my punts. I started ice baths my senior year and never got injured. Here is a link that talks about the benefits of ice baths: http://www.runaddicts.net/tips-tricks/ice-bath-therapy-speed-up-recovery-and-enhance-performance
3) Here is a technique I learned from an ex-NFL punter, that is unique, but it will keep your legs fresh. Lay your body on the ground. Elevate your legs perpendicularly up against the wall. Close to 90 degrees. Keep your legs up on the wall for 15 minutes. The idea behind it is that this will flush out all the old blood in your legs. When you are done, slowly sit up, and new fresh blood will pump back into your legs. The next day your legs will be feel fresher and not heavy. Now make sure you watch TV, read a book or study while doing it because by the 8th-9th minutes it can get a little boring. You don't need to do this every day, but maybe 1-3 times a week, but at least the day before the game.
For aching and sore arms, backs and limbs, I'd recommend using Medic Ice. It's a better version Icy Hot. It will last 4-5 hours and offer hot and cold pain relief. I've given sample packets to a number of my students, if you'd like more information, please see the following link. http://www.specialteamsfootballacademy.com/products.html
2. Weight Training
- Like I mentioned above, your legs will start to wear down throughout the season. Part of what keeps you kicking farther besides proper technique, is having strength, flexibility and quick leg whip to drive the ball. During the season, there isn't a need to be maxing out. Just try to maintain strength. If you back squat 250 pounds, just do enough to maintain strength, like 200 pound. Do enough to push yourself, but not strain your muscles. As a kicker, the areas of your body you want to focus on are your legs & core. Having big biceps only impresses the girls, but doesn't really help you with your kicking. You want to develop strength and power in your quads, ham string, glutes, hips, hip flexor and abs, plus balance and endurance. Core strength is the most important aspect of kicking. Strong core muscles help you to control your kicks. And the combination of core strength and flexibility allows you to kick high, while keeping your body upright. Any ab workouts help, as well as doing back workouts (to keep muscular balance in the front or back). Plyometric workouts help a lot to develop fast twitch muscles. Box jumps, balancing exercises and running ladders all help. For specific drills, please contact me, otherwise you can contact your strength coach.
Don't get overwhelmed with kicking stats. I know that I do ask for stats, but I do so to help showcase kickers, punters, snappers & returners performances. Most times the attention goes to the QB, RB, WR, and very little on the kicking team. I'm trying to help create more attention to our specialists. Many times these are the positions that most coaches recruit later on in the process. Many college coaches know High School kicking units (kicker, snapper, holder, and blocking line) aren't always the most polished and practiced. What is important is to consistently show your leg strength and power on kickoffs, field goals & punts. If you blast a couple kickoffs through the back of the end zone or through the uprights on kickoffs, punt a few long or high punts, that will get their attention! The coaches at the next level believe they can take a guy with a strong leg, and develop him into a kicker or punter. Don't get me wrong in that having great kicking stats help a lot, but don't lose hope if your team has only attempted 1 FG all year.
4. College Recruiting-
For the seniors out there (and some Juniors), make sure you are collecting & sending out as much game film as possible to college special teams coaches and recruiting coordinators. Be proactive
in the recruiting process. Don’t sit around and wait for things to happen, or it may pass you by! Market yourself as well as you can. I am also here to try to help you market yourself and get your name out. You can list me as a referral on any material you send out. (Just please give me some heads up). I have filmed many of my students in private & small group lessons, so I can send you that film if you'd like to use it. An instructor that I team up with for camps, Tom Feely of Feely Kicking, has a great service that I feel is very cost effective in helping you promote yourself. He can do an email blast to all coaches in any division at a very reasonable price (cheaper than the mailing costs to mail out film). I can give you more details about this as well. I will give you his phone number and email if you want. Make sure if you create a highlight film, to make a digital version of it, so you can also send it by an email. Youtube.com or Vimeo.com are probably the best options for uploading film. Here is an example of what I created after my senior year of college football to send to the NFL scouts. You obviously want to put your best kicks first, and the ones that showcase your big leg. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCpmBOjeqLg
Now in reference to what I was saying in the 3rd point. If your high school team isn't that good and you aren't able to get a lot of kicking in, attending kicking/punting/snapping evaluation camps become very valuable. There are a few options out there. As you probably know, I'm a coach/evaluator under the NationalCampSeries.com network. They do a great job of promoting specialists. We put on evaluation camps throughout the year to help you showcase your abilities if you aren't able to on Friday nights. You will get a FREE profile & bio on the website and can upload your highlight film to this. Here is an example of a Bio. http://www.nationalcampseries.com/profile.asp?id=1846&eventid=1
But doing these types of evaluation camps can really help you show your strong leg. More details to come on that later in the week, but there will be a regional evaluation camp on Oct 16.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me
**I do want to preface this by saying that my volunteer coaching at this school will not effect how I instruct other specialists from other schools. I treat all kickers, punters and snappers from all schools equally**
Earlier this summer I was in a meeting with my clothing apparel provider that also is an assistant coach for the Wayzata football program. It was our first meeting together to discuss clothing apparel ideas I had. I had know this man for a while because his son and I played Semi Professional football for 6 years together. We small talked about Special Teams Football Academy and my goals. I told him that at some point I'd like to coach High School Football and he mentioned that Wayzata didn't have a punting coach. I told him I was interested in finding out more and he arranged a meeting with head coach Brad Anderson. Wayzata is the Defending class 5A State Football Champions. They were also a rival school when I played football at Armstrong High School. Wayzata also prevented Armstrong from winning the Conference Title in my Senior year.
We met for lunch and talked about our goals and aspirations. He offered me the opportunity to be a volunteer Special Teams Coach. My focus is on the Punting Unit, as they already have a great kicking coach there, but it would give me an opportunity to support him and the snappers as well. I needed some time to figure out how I would balance this with my full time job and giving lessons. I was able to figure it out and I happily excepted. Over the summer I went 1x a week in the morning to work with all of Wayzata's kicking, punting and snapping specialists. That was really fun. I was able to work with kids of all skill levels in a larger group setting. I gave lessons for group sizes 3-12. Once two-a-days started I game to 2 practices a week and worked with the 4 Varsity/JV punters. I helped develop a depth chart and worked with and trained each kid to help them improve. I also helped with the snappers as well. The Varsity Punter, and Senior Captain Quarterback, Nick Martin, was an athlete I met earlier this year when I gave lessons at Velocity Sports in Champlin. I helped him with is punting and Kickoffs this off season. It's been great to see his improvement. He ended up earning the Kickoff duties in our first game vs Prior Lake. He Kicked off 7 times and had 3 touch backs. Most of his kickoffs dropped at the 5 yard line or less. It's been a pleasure seeing him succeed so far. He also punted twice for a decent average. The Varsity Kicker Tyler Scott scored 11 of Wayzata's 47 points, going 2 for 2 in FGs and 5 for 6 in PATs. From what I was able to track, he should be the state's scoring leader in kicking points after week 1. I'll be back for more updates, but so far this opportunity is great.
Coach Chris Husby
This summer I saw the biggest increase in the lessons in the 2 years of giving lessons & Camps. We ran 5 camps in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I gave private lessons and individual instruction to over 35 kickers, punters and snappers in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Myself along with my team of instructors also worked with the special teams unit for Wayzata, Minnetonka, Onamia and New Richmond, WI high schools. All are excellent programs in their respective conferences and classes. All in all, I was fortunate to train about 53 specialists this year, and also make stronger connections with college football coaches to try and help graduating seniors find a college. One particular story is that I started helping a former Wayzata Kicker find a college late in the summer. He's from Brazil and came to Minnesota with his family. He's back in Brazil now applying for colleges. This last second opportunity didn't work out, but it will now give us a whole year to help him find a school. We'll try for a 2nd semester enrollment.
It is such an honor to be entrusted from parents and coaches to train and help these specialists. I really enjoy giving back to the kids to improve their abilities and help them reach their goals whether it's on the Middle School, High School, Collegiate or Pro level. Every kids has shown significant improvement over the summer, some you can see big improvement in accuracy within the same lesson. I'm excited to say that so far this year I have a 96% retention rate for giving at least a 2nd lesson after the initial lesson. To me, I'm very proud of that. I have a lot of great new opportunities that have come up for me that I will write about soon.
Hello everyone and future readers,
This is my first blog and I'm hoping I can provide you with some great and valuable content to read.
I figured I will start off by writing about myself and back ground, many of which can be found on my Bio.
I am the owner and head instructor of Special Teams Football Academy. I give instruction to Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers. I've had many years of experience in all fields. I started kicking at the age of 12 and worked my way to punting in college, and have been perfecting ever since.
I attended Armstrong High School where I was a multi-sport athlete. I played football, basketball, baseball, track and was on the Olympic Weight Lifting team. We won state 2 years in a row on the weight lifting team. In football I played quarterback, linebacker and was the team's kicker. During my senior year, my focus was on Kicking and was the starting Strong Side Linebacker. I was fortunate to kick the game winning field goal against Maple Grove in the 1st round of the playoffs my Senior year with :03 left in the game. At that point in my life that was the best sports moment of my life. Nothing beats helping your team win, and having the crowd rush the field to celebrate with you. In the middle of the season I did experience torn cartilage in my knee which caused me to missed a few games of the season. Before my Senior year started I was so polished as a kicker, that I felt I had a legitimate chance for a D1 scholarship as a kicker, but once I had the cartilage tear, it caused me to return my kicking mechanics and opportunities.
I attended the University of St. Thomas and received a degree in marketing and finance and played football (for 5 years) there as a linebacker, kicker and punter. In one year we had 4 kickers and 3 punters, that I ended up getting a chance to practice snapping a lot to the other specialists (in practice) and was able to learn how to do it to help my fellow specialists get better quality reps. I actually became pretty good at snapping. Being that I was a punter and kicker though, it was hard to snap to myself. In my final year of football, I had one of my best years ever as a punter. I earned the Special Teams MVP for the Tommies, was a 2x MIAC Special Teams Player of the Week and was one of the top punters in the MIAC. I had game-best averages of 46.3, 44.4, 43.9 and 40.6 yards a game during a 9 game season. Soon after I was recommended by many to pursue the NFL level as a punter. It was something I never thought about going into my last year of football.
During my NFL pursuit I had learned and trained with some of the best NFL instructors in the business including Gary Anderson, Louie Aguiar, Michael Husted and Gary Zauner. I competed against some of the best punters in the world (some whom have been signed in the NFL and UFL) in many NFL Free Agent Punting Combines. But in the end (after 6 years) I decided to pursue coaching instead of a career in the NFL. I decided that I wanted to give back in the industry and teach athletes the tools of what it takes to succeed as a punter and/or kicker at the next level. As I grew up, I didn't have any local professionals to help me perfect my kicking and teach me the skills that I learned later in his career. So my goal is to teach kickers, punters and snappers advanced techniques, drills and experiences to help them have earlier success than I had.
I play minor league football as a punter and kicker for the last 6 years with the Minneapolis Lumberjacks, Minnesota Maulers, St Paul Pioneers and South Metro Dragons. In 2009, I joined the Pioneers and helped them win the NAFL National Championship in Miami, FL and was selected to play in the All American Bowl. Over those years, I have been fortunate to be one of the top punters in the conference and play with some of the best athletes in MN.
At each level of football, I feel like I experienced almost every possible scenario a kicker and punter could experience. I would love to work with anyone out there that wants to learn or become a better overall punter, kicker and snapper
Last December I coached 9 kickers and punters in the 2010 All American Bowl. It was an All-Star Game for Div 2 & 3 athletes. I had the opportunity to work and train with many top kickers and punters. Some are currently having successful opportunities to try out for the UFL and CFL, and hopefully NFL when the lockout is over.
This year, I am the Special Teams Coach (Working with the Punter and Kicker) for the Minor League Football team the Minnesota Dragons in 2011, the team I played for in 2010. Currently the team is 4-0 in the Northern Elite Football League.
In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, traveling the world, listening to music, hanging out with friends and spending time with my wife Lucelia and new born Olivia.
I feel truly blessed for the the opportunities in my life and the opportunities to help improve so many kickers, punters and snappers so far. I want to see them all succeed and reach their goals.
