What our NFL alumni are saying:

"Jonathan (Ruffin) helped me out a ton. Early on in my career when I was in college I was having trouble kicking. He was able to help me out and tell me what I was doing wrong. Within a short period of time he had sorted out the problem."                          
--GRAHAM GANO - Former Lou Groza Award winner - Florida State / current NFL Kicker – Carolina Panthers
"This camp does it right… Everything you can learn right now — the drills, the fundamentals, the small things — are all from guys who have a lot of experience going through some of the changes in kicking. It's great to be able to transfer that to your own practice. How you can separate yourself from other players on the field, or other kickers on other teams, is if you can remember the things you learn at this camp and work on them on your own. They teach the right way."                                                                           
—MIKE NUGENT - Former Lou Groza Award
winner - Ohio State / current NFL Kicker - Cincinnati Bengals
"Ray Guy and Rick Sang provide crucial information for the special teams player, no matter what skill level. They have developed numerous specialists at every level of the game including high school, college and the NFL. Not only do they teach the technical skills, they teach the much needed mental skills that will give every athlete a competitive advantage." 
—BOB LIGASHESKY - Former Special Teams Coach, Pittsburgh Steelers / Super Bowl XLIII Champions
"I think what separates the camps from a lot of other camps is the variety of drills and the variety of expertise and film analysis we do — and the experience of the staff. I've gone to camps where you have guys coaching that haven't kicked the ball in their life. At these camps you have All-Americans and all-conference players, guys who have done it for years. With the repetition you get at these camps and the way you learn to teach yourself, and then you can go home and practice, practice and practice."
—GRAHAM GANO - Former Lou Groza Award winner – Florida State / NFL Kicker – Carolina Panthers


Comprehensive instruction and training
From beginning to end, our innovative training program is designed to teach each athlete the fundamentals and techniques that allow him to learn to coach himself. Our professional coaching staff guides participants through a skill-learning process where every experience has a purpose. This allows each athlete to identify personal needs and develop individual skills, and at the same time create a blueprint for practice and improvement.
Expert analysis
The second day of the camp includes an in-depth review of the individual skills and fundamentals taught on the first day. Training begins by developing these same techniques in a systematic order that matches the sequence in which the skills are executed in games. This not only promotes faster skill improvement, it also enables a much deeper retention of learning. More importantly, every athlete will gain a valuable learning experience through drills simulating the pace and pressure of an actual game.'s training has a lasting effect!
Athletes learn to start taking charge of their own development from the moment training with professional staff begins. One of the primary benefits of's teaching methods is that athletes learn and develop the skills and techniques necessary for continued success — and the record books prove it works with well over 700 alumni currently on college teams and 20 alumni/staff currently on NFL rosters. Self-reliant athletes who are serious about kicking have the ability to teach themselves around the clock and stay ahead of the competition!
