APPLETON EAST HIGH SCHOOL
Our third camp of the summer will be in Appleton, Wisconsin at Appleton East High School’s Pickett turf field. THIS IS A KICKING ONLY CAMP. We will not be teaching punting instruction at this camp.
This kicking camp is open to any middle school or high school kicker or punter.
Please arrive at 8:30am on the game field (find our tent) and we get underway at 9am sharp. We’ll be on the field until noon. Campers will get a free combine t-shirt and plenty of hands-on (or should I say, legs-on) instruction. Come prepared to get some kicks in. You’d hate to be unprepared and have to skip kicks because your leg is tired or sore.
The 3-hour session will be a mixture of group instruction, small group drills that focus on PAT, fields goals, kickoffs and specialty kicks. We add some competition with other campers to get you kicking opportunities under pressure, too! It’s our goal to give you new insights and tools to improve your technique, your consistency, distance and game mentality. Regardless of how advanced you are, we guarantee that you will learn valuable insights that improve your game.
I do not teach a singular method to kicking . We find what works and move on from there. Whether you are a beginner or all-conference, campers tell us that there’s a lot to take away from this experience.
We ask our campers to wear the free t-shirt, not only because it’s cooler than any other camp shirt you’ll get this summer, but because we do some filming, and it’s easier to identify which camper we’re looking at for evaluations.
What should you bring to camp?
First and foremost, a great attitude. We won’t hesitate in sending a camper home if they are belligerent or disrespectful to coaches, parents or fellow athletes (and not refund their camp fee). Don’t be “that guy”.
Do bring comfortable workout gear, kicking shoes, a football that you use in high school (please make an identifying mark on the ball) and any tees that you use. You should also have a jug of water, a snack if necessary, and any additional clothing should the weather be unexpectedly cold or rainy.
What if it rains?
We will have camp — rain or shine. Weather can only delay us. Turf fields offer good footing and no puddles! We will have access to a storm shelter should it be necessary.
What about other camps?
By all means, go to them. Quality repetitions are crucial to your success and competing with other athletes from your area or from across the country gives you a great gauge on your progress. It’s just that some camps get a little pricey or are just too far away. We’re trying to make it very accessible and get you the same (if not better) quality learning. Some of what we teach will be different. It’s great for campers to realize that there is not “a singular way” to become a successful kicker.
RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW
We’re not running a 100-kids-on-a-field camp — ours is smaller and more personal (typically 15-25 campers and under). We want you to learn — and not worry about scouts. Don’t misunderstand, there will be college recruiters in attendance, BUT we don’t do stat sheets… so you don’t need to worry about attempting new skills. Plain and simple, we train kickers and punters, at any skill level to be better than they were before attending camp so that you can become your school’s “Friday Night Kicker”.
IMPORTANT: If you or your camper gets lost or will be delayed in getting to camp, please text Mike Farley directly at: 262-388-3326. We want to make sure that every camper is safe at camp (as well as to and from the camp site).
