Chris Sailer Kicking – Vegas XXV

Chris Sailer Kicking – Vegas XXV

Why the change in name? Over the year’s Chris Sailer Kicking has developed the ultimate strategy to get High School & Junior College Specialists college scholarships!  How? Exposure.

I want you to think about it for 1 minute.  In 1995, 5 specialists signed D1 college scholarships. Three of them go by the names of Chad Shrout (Hawaii), Nacho Brache (CAL) and Chris Sailer (UCLA).  Do these names sound familiar? Exactly….. Chris Sailer Kicking staff members.  In 2014, 60+ specialists signed D1 College Scholarships.  If the names of those 60+ specialists sound familiar, you are right, they are.  You want to know why?  Almost every singe one of them them went through Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping!

My first student in 1999 was Nick Folk. Give Nick Folk credit for changing the recruiting process for Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers forever.  The NFL All-Pro Placekicker was a student at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA.  The same school that also happens to be my alma mater.  It is also the same school that Lou Groza Award Winner and Washington Redskin Kicker Kai Forbath calls his alma mater. COINCIDENCE?  Nick was a soccer player turned kicker that is the only player that I have ever promised a scholarship to!  I said, “Nick, I will get you a scholarship!”  Hundreds of hours of work later, I was able to get one school to bite, the University of Arizona.  From those hundreds of hours of filming, phone calls, visits, even begging, the world of kicking, punting, and eventually long snapping changed forever.  Why?  The 1st Annual National Kicking Competition was born.  Why?  Because college coaches told me to run a camp where they could see all of these specialists at one place at one time.  Then and only then would they start to believe me and offer scholarships.

The success of Nick Folk and so many others that followed in his footsteps….  Plus Vegas is the reason why the number of Kickers, Punters & Long Snappers scholarships signed each and every year continues to grow!  The proof lies in the history of Chris Sailer Kicking, the birth of Vegas, and the domination of what would become Rubio Long Snapping (Introduced in 2003).  The long snapping story is another 50 page book in and of itself.  I’ll let Chris Rubio tell that story.
How did all of this happen? Exposure. How did exposure begin?  Vegas!  From the 1st Annual National Kicking Competition to the 4th Annual National Kicking Event (Name change due to the fact that college coaches couldn’t attend “Competitions” with stats anymore) to the first Event where camps could no longer be on college campuses, to the first Event where college coaches simply could no longer attend (all due to NCAA rules), Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping have found the way to continue to get our athletes the best exposure the business could offer.

“TOP 12” & “EVENT ELITE” are exposure lists that can now rival lists such as “ELITE 11”.  24 Vegas Competitions/Events later, kickers, punters and long snappers are nearly on the same page as quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs.  The goal has been accomplished.  Players wear their yellow shirts with pride.  The fact that I don’t even need to explain what a yellow shirt means proves the point that the exposure offered is second to none.

100’s of copycats have come and gone over the years.  There are 100’s of reasons to explain why.  Bottom line, Chris Sailer & Chris Rubio are the innovators. Rankings?  You called it, we were the first.  National Event of any kind, you nailed it again, we were the first.  Legitimate Long Snapping Camp? Correct, we were the first.  Social Media Presence? Correct again, we were the first. National Players of the year? You are correct yet again, we were the first.  Kicker getting a scholarship as a Sophomore?  Correct, Adam Griffith (Alabama), we were the first. Long Snapper getting a scholarship as a junior? Aha, Christian Yount (UCLA), we were the first. Long Snapper getting a scholarship offer as a 7th Grader? It happened, (Quinton Skinner, a Rubio Long Snapper since the 4th Grade), we were the first.  College coaches trust in Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping because history proves us to be correct!

After 12 Vegas Events and 12 Vegas Spring Events the time has come.  Vegas = The LARGEST Kicking, Punting & Long Snapping Camp in the WORLD. VEGAS XXV is born.  #VEGASXXV is born.  Say the word Vegas to any Kickers, Punter or Long Snapper in the world and they will know exactly what you are talking about.  10,000+ served = Only 1 word needed.

Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping will continue to be the innovator in the business.  That’s a guarantee.  Get ready for Fall 2014 and Vegas XXV.  You haven’t seen anything like what you are about to see and be a part of.  #TeamSailer #TeamRubio #VEGASXXV #ArmyBowl

Be a part of it!  See you there January 16-18, 2015

Chris Sailer Kicking – COLLEGE CAMP

Every year, Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping hold a College Camp for all the Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers that are currently playing at a 4-Year College and/or headed to play at a 4-Year College. This summer, we simply could not find a suitable time to run one SO we have come up with the following plan….

Any Kicker, Punter and/or Long Snapper that is currently at a 4-Year College and/or headed to a 4-Year College can come to any of our personal camps (IL, GA, NC, TX, CA, Underclassmen Event) for free to work with Sailer / Rubio and also assist with younger specialists. This is a great way to knock off the rust, get ready for the season and inspire the next generation. You will get all of the instruction throughout the day, but simply won’t be able to partake in the competitions. Plus, it will require less travel, this summer, for the college athletes.

We will definitely try to create a block of time next summer for the College Camp but, until then, just contact Chris Sailer (818) 818-209-8921 or Chris Rubio 626-260-2524 to join us this summer.

Los Angeles, CA – June 21-22
Chicago, IL – July 13
Dallas, TX – July 15
Charlotte, NC – July 26
Atlanta, GA – July 27
Los Angeles, CA – July 30
