The Value of 1 on 1 Coaching

While practicing with the team is a great way to improve a player’s overall football abilities and helps create a solid base of teamwork, there are certain skills that are hard to master when working in a team situation. Some of the most notable examples of this are kicking and punting. In a normal practice situation, the Kicker does not get the opportunity to utilize these skills as often as is necessary to develop them to their fullest. Additionally, many great football coaches do not have the knowledge necessary to bring out the best in a Kicker or Punter. Because of this, finding 1 on 1 coaching for kicking and punting is essential—to help a player reach his potential.

A professional kicking instructor and kicking camps prove to be the best way to teach this important skill. The best in the business is Chris Sailer Kicking. In addition to providing the coaching necessary to develop the player and bring out the best, Chris Sailer Kicking is THE SOURCE for college recruiting and exposure as well—offering a wellounded package of benefits to up and coming Kickers and Punters of all skill levels.

Stay tuned for updates from our National Events this week in Las Vegas:





Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping Alums Square off in Denver this Weekend!

This weekend’s Divisional AFC Playoff game in Denver, CO featuring the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Denver Broncos includes two Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping alums. The featured alums are both rookies and stars in the making.

Justin Tucker Kicker for the Baltimore Ravens is having a phenomenal season and was just a few votes away from being selected for the Pro Bowl. Tucker has connected on 30 of 33 field goals this year and has been a reliable asset on special teams for the AFC North Champs Ravens.

Denver Broncos Long Snapper Aaron Brewer is another standout Rookie out of San Diego State. Brewer has started all 16 games this season and will look for his first playoff victory this weekend. Brewer beat out veteran Long Snapper Lonie Paxton in training camp and has never looked back.

Look for these two Rookies in the game’s most critical moments to see who comes out on top.

Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping are proud of the success of these two great football players on and off the field.

Good Luck guys!

Dean Crozier has Committed to Rutgers!

Every February, on a yearly trip to Australia to evaluate Australian Punters, Chris Sailer Kicking discovered Dean.  He had only been punting for a few months when we took him on and trained him just February of this year.

During his training, realizing he was a special kicker, he was encouraged to attend our 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas, which happens in May.  Coming from Aussie football, he really performed at a high level and impressed everyone.  Chris Sailer Kicking then got him publicity by getting him all over the National Radar for schools looking for a punter of his caliber.

Dean may end up being one of the best punters to ever come through Chris Sailer Kicking.  He has the physical size and strength to dominate the D1 level.  Even though he just has recently picked up punting, he has made tremendous strides in a short amount of time. A big time prospect that has NFL written all over him with hard work.  At 6’7″ tall and 242lbs, he is a very big prospect for kicking!

Dean Crozier is the second of CSK’s Australian Punters to commit in this class (we have 3 per year).  Daniel Cadona committed to Lousiana Lafayette early this year also.

Here is a link to Dean’s Chris Sailer Kicking Profile.  Take note that his National Rank is currently 9th!

10 Things a High School Coach Should Know About Their Kicker/Punter

10 Things a High School Coach Should Know About Their Kicker/Punter

1. A K/P is unique just like any other position player in the off season.  They should train as athletes first.  But they should also train specifically for their position.  They should not be expected to just jump into any group and train like a lineman or defensive back that day.  Take the time to structure an off season schedule for your K/P.

2. A K/P is only as good as his special team unit, especially the long snapper and holder.  Kickers and punters should begin working with next year’s snapper and holder the day the season ends.  An entire offseason is necessary to ensure a successful season.  Don’t wait until the first day of camp.  Also, the snapper and holder need to be players that actually want to play the position and spend the necessary hours working on and perfecting these key skills.  Tip: chose the punter to be the holder.

3. Set a date and time to meet with your K/P as early in the off season as possible.  Talk about season goals, specialist camp goals (Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping), offseason schedule, in season schedule, snappers and holders, etc.  Meet early and get on the same page and the team will dominate that third of the game we call “special teams”.

4. Your word goes a long way with college coaches.  Please put in the time and effort to help your K/P find a college home.  There are more colleges that need K/P’s then are there are good K/P’s out there to fill those needs.  Believe me when I say, “Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers” get scholarships for their specialty position.  Help your K/P get a scholarship and take a portion of the credit.  This is a great way to build your program.

5. K/P’s are like starting pitchers in baseball.  They cannot kick/punt all day, every day.   They have a K/P count, just like a pitcher has a pitch count.  Focus on quality over quantity and have a plan.  There a plenty of things for your K/P to do to improve their skills including muscle memory drills 7 days a week and film study each day.  Provide a basic digital camera if possible.

6. If you want your kicker to be successful on the field during games, preparation starts during practice.  Make time to give your K/P live reps during practice with the team.  You cannot expect perfection in a game if you haven’t practiced it enough.  Take more time to work on special teams during practice with live reps.  If possible, work special teams right after early outs and stretching.  See number 5.

7. Specialists need the full field for a portion of practice.  Create an early outs session where all the kickers, punters, snappers, holders, and returners take the field before the rest of the team.  20-30 minutes time will do wonders.

8. Allow your K/P to determine the size of the kicking tees they use.  Good kickers work extremely hard in the off season and know which size tee they have confidence using.  Monitor the success rate of the kicks, not the tee size.

9. K/P’s are trained to be their own coach when it comes to technique.  Unless you know what you are talking about, leave your K/P alone when it comes to technique.  Again, monitor the success of the kicks, don’t analyze the technique.

10. Have your K/P’s back.  Encourage, don’t discourage.  There will come a time when a K/P will miss a big kick, shank a punt, etc.  It happens to everyone.  Your going to need your K/P to step up next time.  Tell your K/P that you believe in them and get them back on the horse.  If your K/P knows that you believe in them, they are 10 times more likely to have success.
