Ray Guy explains how to use onside kicks An onside kick can be used at any time to create a big play, but usually these kicks are employed when the game is on the line and the kicking team desperately needs the ball in the hands of its offense.

As this year comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you. It would have been enough to provide the quality kicking, punting, and long snapping training camps; but that you so positively mentor and model what it means to be a mature, responsible athlete in the pursuit of a sport was so much more than we ever expected.
Your impact on our son during the most important years of his life went far beyond athletics. Due to some conditions beyond his control, he found it impossible to continue his love of punting after his freshman year in college. Yet we are certin he will always reflect back to your role during that time in his life as one of the most positive experiences and take the lessons with him as he matures into his adult life.
So thank you again for your tireless dedication. It meant more to us than you can know.

I attended the Ann Arbor camp this past summer and had a great time. I wanted to let you know that I just recently kicked my longest field goal of my career at 60 yards and averaged 44.5 yards/punt in my last game. Your camp really helped tune up my kicking game for this season. Thanks for your incredible service.
I attended your camp in Memphis. Two-a-days have started now, and I really started blasting the ball. I am averaging 50 yards per punt with a 4 + second hang time. Thank you so much.

Over 70,000 miles across the US are traveled annually to bring kickers, punters and long snappers the most innovative training equipment and instructional program of its kind.

Thank you for putting on a great camp this past weekend (April 12-13, 2008). Michael loved it. He told me immediately after the camp, "it was the best camp ever and I want to come back." He said, that your staff was giving him feed back after each and every kick and "they were really great coaches."

I just wanted to tell you that we enjoyed the camp very much. Thanks for doing a great job!!

My son Cory attended your camp at Eastern Kentucky University this past week. It was the second time he has participated in Prokicker/Ray Guy Kicking Camp and as a camper, he expressed to me that he really enjoyed his interaction with the coaching team and that they were very supportive and helpful with their instruction.
As a parent with a great deal of professional experience in this area, I too appreciate the manner in which the camps are organized and the attention to detail that you and your staff exhibit. It was uniquely evident that your team worked equally with the young inexperienced camper as well as the more seasoned and developed athletes.
In addition, not many campers will understand what Ray Guy accomplished as a punter, but as a parent who watched him in his prime with the Raiders, I can't describe my excitement to see him interact with my son on a one on one level. It's very impressive to view his support and genuine concern in each and every camper. He's not a celebrity lending his name to a business; he's giving back to the profession every day, camper by camper with great consideration. He understands that a young person's life can be impacted and altered by a single comment or praise.
Thank you for you sharing your expertise. Feel free to utilize any of my comments as you see fit and thanks again for your efforts to enrich your campers. Keep up the good work!

Please pass on to Rick and all the team how impressed we were with the Seattle-Tacoma camp. The coaches were relatable and imparted their knowledge in such a way that the players couldn't help but benefit from their experience and skills. They were completely professional, and treated even the youngest attendees with respect as athletes.
I would like to know what other camps my son can attend this coming winter, as he grew as a person in two days, not only as an athlete.

From orientation to the end of each expertly-organized, caring, hard-working, and instructive day, I felt that every penny I paid for the camp was well spent. I only regret that I hadn't sent our son sooner. I will highly recommend your camp to others.
You are the coaches kids need to inspire them to play football, and, most of all, to grow and live life right. I can't thank you enough.

If you can long snap, you definitely will be considered an asset to any team regardless of your primary position. So, whether your goal is to earn a scholarship, or to help your team any way you can, the instruction received at these camps is unparalleled. Work with experienced and successful collegiate and professional long snappers who are also experienced instructors...

Rick, just a quick note to say "thank you" and "job well done" in regard to the recent camp in Birmingham. I was extremely impressed and pleased with the organization and actual teaching. My son Will participated in the long snapping aspect of the camp. He had fun, but learned many new drills and techniques that I feel certain will only improve his snapping. The most gratifying aspect of the camp for me was the honesty you and your staff displayed. So many of these young men are repeatedly told how good they are and/or that they will have their picks from scholarship offers. You made it very clear to these young men, and their parents, just how difficult it is to make it to the next level. Kids today rarely display the "I really want it" attitudes that it takes to make it to the college or professional level. You made it very clear to these young men that nothing is going to be handed to them. I had the privilege to play at the University of Georgia. If any of these young men knew what an honor and thrill it is to play at the next level, I imagine you would see a much stronger work ethic. Please extend my thanks to your entire staff. Keep up the good work.
