"Being prepared is the key to winning that starting position, earning a college scholarship or ultimately playing professionally. That is why our main objective with every Ray Guy Kicking Camp event is to provide every participant focused "individualized" instruction allowing each athlete to develop their own "natural" style. Even though there are basic, easy to understand guidelines to follow when developing kicking, punting and snapping skills, not all athletes kick, punt or snap the same way. We help every athlete understand not only where "their skill" needs improvement but also what they are doing naturally that is already correct. This way, athletes learn at a much faster pace allowing them to accomplish our program goal of "learning how to coach themselves." - Rick Sang, Ray Guy Camps Director
