They should be commended on their accomplishments. I understand that many other tremendous kicking and punting specialists in attendance were also deserving and can state their case as to why they are deserving over the first 20 selected. In the end, as always explained, these choices were made based on several factors and ultimately the decision of Chris Sailer.

Are you disappointed that you weren’t selected? There are two ways to go about it. You can either 1). Complain, quit and blame others for the decision, or 2). Continue to work harder than ever getting ready for Vegas XXXIV (May 11-12, 2019) and prove that you belong among the elite. Chris Sailer Kicking will select 20 more Kickers / Punters to attend the TOP 12 Camp at Vegas XXXIII. See you soon at the greatest camp on earth…. Vegas.

I’m a Senior, What Should I Do In November?

5 Easy Tips For The Class of 2019 To Get Ahead In Recruiting – November

1. Stop panicking.  We are still very early in the recruiting process.  Less that 5% of the class of 2019 (K/P) have made college commitments.  Less than 10% of the class of 2019 (K/P) have been offered any sort of college opportunity.  Note, there are many waves of recruiting.  Recruiting will last all the way through August when fall camps officially begin for the upcoming college football season.

2. Take unofficial visits as often as possible.  An unofficial visit simply means that you have to pay for the visit yourself.   Getting on campus is the best way to show a college football program genuine interest.  Sending emails, making phone calls, direct messaging on social media, etc. simply isn’t enough anymore.  A coach will know that you have a real interest once you make the effort to get on campus.

3. Start to narrow down your search to universities and colleges that are realistic options.  This includes level of football (FBS, FCS, D2, D3, NAII, JC, etc.), level of academics, region of the country, etc.  Stop targeting D1 football programs if you are not a D1 recruit.  Stop targeting high academic institutions if you have a 2.0 GPA.  Find schools that will reciprocate interest in you and opportunities will follow.

4. Ask for an opportunity, not a scholarship.  Every college coach in America knows that you would like to be offered a scholarship.  When you ask for a scholarship, this turns them off.  You are basically limiting communication opportunity.  When you ask for an opportunity to be on the team, coaches will be receptive.  You are opening a door for communication.  The goal in recruiting is to create options.  Offers of any kind, create buzz, which create more options.  Scholarship vs. Preferred Walk On offers will take care of itself in the end.

5. Get ready for XXXIII (January 19-20, 2019).  The biggest mistake made these days is thinking that recruiting for seniors is already over by this time.  In fact, it is the exact opposite.  90% of Kickers / Punters in this class will be recruited heavily during this time of year.  It will be feeding frenzy.  National Letter of Intent Day (NLI) is in early February.  Vegas takes place this time of year for this reason.  College coaches pay a tremendous amount of attention to the Vegas results and post Vegas rankings.  Scholarships offers and preferred walk on opportunities will be won this weekend in Vegas.

THIS IS WHAT VEGAS LOOKS LIKE! SEE YOU THERE….

Vegas XXXIII (January 19-20) Early Registration Deadline & THE 2019 ALL-ACCESS PASS!

This coming Monday November 19th is the Vegas XXXIII (January 19-20, 2019) Early Registration Deadline.  Be sure to register by midnight to get the early registration discount price of $450.  The price will increase to the regular price of $500 on Tuesday November 20th.

Vegas XXXIII (January 19-20, 2019) Information
1. This is NOT an “Invite Only” camp.  Camp is open on a first come, first serve basis.  Vegas Events offer the ultimate experience and exposure for Kickers & Punters of all skill levels from 8th Grade to College Transfers.  If you want to one day play college football, this is the camp for you! REGISTER HERE

2. Chris Sailer Kicking will select/invite 20 Kickers/Punters from Vegas XXXIII to attend the prestigious TOP 12 Camp (July 15-17, Los Angeles, CA).  This is your first chance to get invited to the TOP 12 Camp.  If you are not selected this time, you will have a second opportunity to be selected/invited at Vegas XXXIV (May 11-12, 2019).  In total 40 Kickers/Punters will be invited to the TOP 12 Camp from both Vegas Events. Here is a look at the 40 talented athletes that were invited in 2018.


3. Vegas XXXIII is HUGE for seniors, Junior College Prospects and College K/P’s looking to transfer.  Trust me on this one.  Read THIS BLOG on what you should be doing in November!

4. There is a tune up session on Friday January 18th in Las Vegas at the same exact facility as the Event itself.  This is an optional session, but it is highly recommended.  It is a great way to get acclimated to your surroundings and work with the CSK staff.  Shake the jet lag off and get your body ready to dominate.  The cost is $100.  REGISTER HERE

5. The 2019 ALL-ACCESS PASS is here! Enjoy all Chris Sailer Kicking camps (excluding the Underclassmen Invitational & TOP 12 Camps).  Yes, this does include Vegas XXXIII, the Vegas XXXIII Friday Tune Up Session, Vegas XXXIV, the Vegas XXXIV Friday Tune Up Session & ALL 1-Day Camps in Southern CA, Northern CA, TX, GA, IL, NC, WA, AZ & NJ.  The ONE TIME fee is $1,999. This will be an incredible training and exposure advantage for one low cost.  REGISTER HERE

“Knowing that you will be training _______ (Class of 2020) for the entire year will give us tremendous insight with that athlete.  First of all we will know that he is tremendously dedicated and second your evaluation of him is going to be spot on since you’ll see him on a consistent basis.  Your All-Access Program will give me the confidence to extend scholarship and PWO (Preferred Walk-On) offers without hesitation to those athletes involved based on your recommendations.” – D1 Special Teams Coach

I HIGHLY recommend the 2019 All-Access Pass to any kicker/punter that wants to play college football and has the dedication that is required to make it to the next level.  To see all the details of the ALL-ACCESS PASS and to see exactly which Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Members will be coaching at each camp, CLICK HERE.  You can plan your entire 2019 schedule right now.  Purchase the ALL-ACCESS PASS by December 31st to ensure that you can take advantage of all 2019 Camps.

I have already been told by several parents of veteran Chris Sailer Kicking Families that this will be a tremendous Christmas Gift!

*** If you have already registered for Vegas XXXIII and/or any 2019 camp and would like to opt in for the All-Access Pass, simply contact Samantha Haines (CSK Administrative Assistant) (208)-582-0461.  She will deduct the cost of any camps that you have previously registered for from the $1999 price.***

***If you cannot make the entire payment all at once, contact Samantha Haines (CSK Administrative Assistant) (208)-582-0461 and she will work out a payment plan with you***

Looking forward to an amazing 2019!
