Ray Guy Prokicker.com National Kicking Championship 2017

Annual Competition and Recruiting Exposure!

Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers have the opportunity to compete with the nation's top prospects at any Ray Guy Prokicker.com event across the country. Our National Kicking Championship Series is a year long competition that progresses from January through December.  This annual event is strategically scheduled to culminate at the end of football season – and just before national signing day in February. This is vital timing for athletes to perform at their "end of season" optimum performance level. It is also a crucial time for college recruiters to finalize their scholarship decisions and even seek new talent to add to their recruiting list for the future.

WHO CAN COMPETE
High school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors can compete by attending any Ray Guy Prokicker.com event throughout the year. This includes summer, fall and winter camps; showcases, charting only sessions, and even through private instruction. The National Kicking Championship Series is the ideal platform for kickers, punters, and long snappers to get on the "radar" of the college coach - and get a "jump" on the recruiting process. High school seniors can also make that last push to get their names in front of the recruiters - or solidify their place in the recruiting process. Even athletes who are not on the recruiting radar - but deserve attention - can come out of nowhere and bring their name and talents to the forefront.

Kickers competing in the High School Division may use (one or two inch placement blocks) for field goal competition and (one or two inch tee) for kick off competition. Long Snappers will snap to a target within a 15 yard range, simulating the standard distance used in college when snapping to a punter.

All athletes will use tees, blocks, and holders provided by Prokicker.com for competition. Long Snappers will snap to a target within a 15 yard range, simulating the standard distance used in college when snapping to a punter.
 
SCHOLARSHIP DIVISON
The Scholarship Division includes senior athletes based on their fall enrollment of the current calender year and who qualify for a college scholarship. High school senior kickers  have the option during competition to follow either high school or college rules as it relates to the elevation requirements of the football during placement kicks and kickoffs. For field goals, they may use one or two inch placement blocks (as allowed in high school) or they may kick "off the ground" (as required in college). For kickoffs, they may use a one or two inch kickoff tee that is allowed in high school (college requires one inch).

Important Note: The National Kicking Championship Series is strategically scheduled to conclude at the end of the high school football season for recruiting purposes. The timing of this event limits high school senior kickers enough time to begin the "transition" of lowering the football to meet the elevation requirements for kicking at the college level. Prokicker.com in no way wants to influence kickers to adjust the elevation of the football in efforts to prepare for this competition. Kickers are strongly encouraged to always use the proper equipment allowed by the rules that enables them to perform at their optimum performance level. It is important to note in this competition, it's not the placement level of the football that will impress college coaches, it will be the performance of the kick.
