Explanation of Chris Sailer Kicking Camps

There are so many options out there that it can become confusing. After 19 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, All-American Bowl on NBC, Polynesian All-American Bowl on CBS, 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, etc. 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.

So You Didn’t Make TOP 12, What Now?

For the past few weeks, you have been waiting anxiously to see if you were going to be selected to the TOP 12 Camp. When the first 20 selections were announced, 20 kickers / punters were ecstatic. Hundreds of others were upset, frustrated, angry, etc…. rightfully so. As athletes and competitors the desire to succeed should run deep.

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.If you are a Kicker / Punter that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12 camp this summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Kickers / Punters, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder. Your opportunity is waiting for you in Las Vegas. VEGAS XXXIV

At Vegas XXXIV, I will choose 20 additional TOP 12 Camp Invitees.  They will join the first 20 selected at the Invite Only TOP 12 Camp this summer.   This is a true invite only camp. I do NOT just hand out invites to get people to come to it. That would give me no credibility. I choose the best because they are the best. They will represent the TOP 12 and Chris Sailer Kicking forever.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

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.
