Which Camps Should I Attend?

I get asked hundreds of questions per day.  I post to social media and write blogs to make finding answers to these questions easier.  Perhaps the most common question that we get asked is…. “Which camps should I attend?”  

I can understand why this question comes up so often.  There are so many options out there that it can become confusing.   After 17 years in the business, I know the value of great instruction, the value of education, and perhaps most importantly, the value of exposure.  I make choices each year to offer our clients the best possible options to achieve success.  Chris Sailer Kicking remains #1 in the business for that reason.  High school coaches, college coaches and NFL coaches trust in Chris Sailer Kicking.  The proof is in the results.

Las Vegas, TOP 12, US Army All-America Bowl, Underclassman Invitational, Fall / Spring / Summer 1-Day Regional Camps, FBU Youth All-American Games, Australian Scout Camps, College Training Camp & NFL Training Camps, NFL Combines, College Camps.  Many have tried to copy the model that Chris Sailer Kicking has created, but there is a reason why we are #1 in the World.  Experience, real relationships with everyone that matters in this business & the best instruction available across the world.  If you want to make it as a kicker or punter Welcome to Chris Sailer Kicking.

Camp includes instruction and competition. Register for these camps through the University.

FBU TOP GUN:  This is a 2-Day Camp.  You must be invited by Chris Sailer. To be invited is a serious honor.   The specialists for the US Army All-America Bowl and FBU Youth All-American Bowls will be selected at this camp.  Chris Sailer Kicking is an official partner of FBU, The US Army All-America Bowl & The FBU Youth All-America Bowls.  Camps include: Exposure through FBU, the opportunity to be considered for the US Army All-America Bowl & FBU All-America Games, instruction, video analysis, evaluation and rankings.  You register for these camps by calling FBU directly.

Notes:
I recommend attending the TOP GUN Camp every year. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl & FBU Youth All-American Bowl participants are selected by me at this camp.
When prioritizing camps, Vegas Events should always come first.
All camps offer instruction, competition, evaluation and national rankings.
Highlight videos are available at the 1-Day Regional Camps, Las Vegas Events and Invite Camps.
Every camp has SOLD OUT for the past 12 years.  Register early.
Chris Sailer will no longer run college camps as the NCAA has passed a rule no longer allowing any non university employee to serve as instructors at these camps.

This might seem like we are asking a lot of you.  You are right, we are.  An opportunity to play college football or perhaps in the NFL is HUGE.  We will give you that opportunity.  The harder you work, the more time you invest, the reality of reaching your goals will come true.  It is very competitive out there.  Those who work the hardest and understand the process stay one step ahead of the game.  See you at a Chris Sailer Kicking camp soon!

2017 IL Spring Camp Recap, Cooney Dominates!

With each camp we get closer and closer to Vegas 30.  Chicago, IL was the site of the 7th 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp.  So far over 700 specialists have competed in CA, NC, WA, TX, NJ, AZ and IL on the road to Vegas 30. This was bar the most impressed I’ve ever been with the talent and competition in the Midwest.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Michael Cooney (2018, IL) – The long time Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker is really starting to come into his own.  He proved that he was one of the very best at the camp from minute one.  He made it to the end of nearly every competition and came out on top on kickoff.  Michael is a confident kicker that kicks with great consistency.  He has 55 yard range on field goals off the ground.  His kickoffs average 65 yards with 4.0 hang time.  Michael is a D1 prospect that should challenge for a TOP 12 spot in Vegas!

Field Goal Champion
Devin Parker (2018, IL) – Devin did an outstanding job at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp.  He is a great looking athlete with an explosive leg.  He won a major field goal competition with his consistency and ability to also hit from deep.  He has 50+ yard range and a D1 kickoff leg.  Devin also does very well under pressure.  Look for Devin to turn the heads of college coaches this summer.

Field Goal Champion
Bryce Hellgeth (2018, IL) – Bryce is a very talented athlete.  He has a great leg and excellent natural ability.  He stepped up to win the first major field goal competition by connecting on 7 straight field goals from 35 to 52 yards.  Many of these kicks were into a significant wind.  He also showed promise on kickoff.  Bryce has a great skill set and his best is still in front of him.  Look for Bryce continue to make a name for himself this spring and summer.  He is a strong prospect.

Punt Champion
Porter Wilson (2019, OH) – Porter is a big time punting talent.  A 6’5″, 210 pound athlete with unlimited potential.  He did an outstanding job the entire day averaging well over 45 yards, with 4.4 plus hang time.  He also hit several balls over 50 yards with 4.7 plus hang time.  Porter has the ideal D1 punting frame.  He is one of the best punting prospects I have seen in a few years.  Look for Porter to be the first punter in the Class of 2019 to pick up scholarship offers.  He will easily challenge for a TOP 12 spot this May in Vegas.

Top 2018 Prospect
Quentin Wallace (2018, IL) – The TOP 12’er proved exactly why he earned that honor at Vegas XXIX this past January.  The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student is a D1 scholarship level kicker without a doubt.  He hits a pure ball off the ground and has 55+ yard range.  He also has one of the best kickoff legs in the nation.  On this day he hit several balls over 65 yards with 4.1 plus hang time.  His best ball topped 4.2 seconds.  He is a big time competitor that is well on his way.

2017 AZ Spring Camp Recap, Narveson Victorious!

The road to Vegas 30 continued with a stop in AZ on April 9th.  This was by far the most talent we have seen in Phoenix.  Specialists from nearly 10 states were in attendance looking to come out and top gaining major national exposure.  On this day Brayden Narveson proved that he was clearly the class of the competition.  He was rewarded with a scholarship offer and subsequent commitment to Iowa State the following week. Exposure at its finest. Take a look at the results.

Overall ChampionBrayden Narveson (2018, AZ)
Brayden absolutely dominated the competitions on this day.  He won both major field goal competitions and also came out on top in the punt competition.  The TOP 12 Camp Invitee has all the tools to excel at the next level.  He is smooth and accurate on field goals.  His kickoffs are D1 ready.  And he also does a nice job punting the football.  Brayden is a big time pick up for Iowa State.  There are big things ahead for this talented athlete.

Kickoff ChampionGabriel Ballinas (JC, Mexico)
Gabriel is one of the most talented off the radar prospects out there.  He is from Mexico, but is currently living in Arizona.  He drives the ball 65-70 yards with around 4.0 second hang time.  His field goals are coming along nicely.  He also shows great ability as a punter.  Gabriel is the type of athlete that can compete and any college level.  Strong upside here.
