"Professional kickers offering quality instruction."

 

lessonsKCKicking's lessons give a student an understanding of proper fundamentals and mechanics as well as prepare them for the mental aspects of special teams play. Lessons are engaging, structured, and enjoyable, to ensure that you have the best opportunity to improve as a specialist.

KCKicking’s coaches have several years of playing experience in the National Football League and in major College conferences (SEC and B12). The goal for each lesson is to ensure each student has a thorough understanding of proper kicking mechanics, learn how to interpret feedback given to you based on the result of each kick, and implement corrections in a manor which will carry-over from the practice field to game day.

Group Training Program

KCKicking now offers group training which incorporates EMVP’s Kicking Velocity Program to help its athletes increase strength, endurance and the leg speed necessary to take their kicking game to the next level!

EMVP KCKicking kick training

Within your body you have what is called a 'kinetic chain'. The body is made up of joints, bones and muscles that all function together; it is the same idea as individual links in a chain. Each must be strong in order to work properly. For the kicking athlete, the kinetic chain sequence starts from the first push off the grass to the follow through. EMVP’s 4 Stage Kicking Velocity Program, with the use of their SureFit Leg Weights, focuses on strengthening this chain piece by piece. They do this by starting the athlete with a functional strength stage; where they perform their actual on the field movements. They follow this with specific exercises selected and compiled by EMVP’s team of current and former professional athletes as well as certified sports physiotherapists. By combining functional training, new exercises, commonly used exercises, and specific rehabilitative exercises they are ensuring that our athletes are getting a well rounded workout, strengthening the entire kinetic chain.
