2020 Chris Sailer Kicking Camps Explained… 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 20 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, Rising Seniors Invitational, Fall / Spring / Summer 1-Day Regional Competition 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.

2018 Chris Sailer Kicking Summer Opportunities

The 2018 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Tour was an incredible success culminating with a tremendous Vegas XXXII Event.  Now that the dust is beginning to settle, the question is… what next?  Chris Sailer Kicking has a huge 2018 Summer Schedule planned.  Here is my advice!

Class of 2019 & Junior College Prospects
June: Attend 3-5 college camps.  These are camps put on by the Universities themselves and are essentially tryouts.  I cannot stress enough, go to camps that fit your athletic and academic skill set.  DO NOT overdo it and attend too many of these camps.  Avoid poor performances do to fatigue and worse yet injuries.

Late June, July & August: Attend the following camps…
June 28 – Los Angeles, CA 1-Day Camp
June 30 – Charlotte, NC 1-Day Camp
July 1 – Atlanta, GA 1-Day Camp
July 9 – Chicago, IL 1-Day Camp
July 22 – Dallas, TX 1-Day Camp
August 5 – Honolulu, HI 1-Day Camp

*Attend 2 of these camps.  1) Attend the camp in your region. 2) Attend a camp outside of your region.  Compete with others outside of your comfort zone and take the time to visit colleges in that area.  Get experience traveling and getting to know another part of the country.  This will go a long way in helping you making your college choice when that times comes.  As a rising senior or junior college prospect this will greatly benefit you.

July 11-12 – TOP GUN in Rock Hill, SC.  This is your chance to try out to become a U.S. Army All-American or a Polynesian Bowl All-American.  At this camp, I will be selecting 2 Kickers and 2 Punters for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl (The largest and most prestigious All-American Game in the world).  I will also be selecting 2 K/P’s for the Polynesian Bowl (The fastest rising All-American Game to be played in Hawaii).  Chris Sailer Kicking rankings WILL be adjusted from the results of this camp.

TO REGISTER CALL: 973-366-5027

July 16-18 – TOP 12 (Invite Only Camp) in Los Angeles, CA.  If you have been invited to this camp, this is a no-brainer.  You are part of the most exclusive specialist club in the world!

So…. your recommended plan is: 3-5 College Camps, TWO 1-Day CSK Regional Camp & TOP GUN!

Classes of 2020 & 2021 Prospects

June: Attend 1 (max 2) College Camps.  These camps are 99% intended to scout and evaluate the Class of 2019.  You are going simply for experience.  Unless you are a 5-Star, Top 5 nationally ranked CSK prospect, I would highly recommend waiting for these camps until you are a rising senior.  I recommend going to 1 college camp simply to get experience.  Focus your energy and resources on camps that will help get you prepared.

Late June, July & August: Attend the following camps…
June 28 – Los Angeles, CA 1-Day Camp
June 30 – Charlotte, NC 1-Day Camp
July 1 – Atlanta, GA 1-Day Camp
July 9 – Chicago, IL 1-Day Camp
July 22 – Dallas, TX 1-Day Camp
August 5 – Honolulu, HI 1-Day Camp

*Attend the camp in your region. Possible consider attending an additional regional camp outside of your area to compete with others outside of your comfort zone and take the time to visit colleges in that area. Get experience traveling and getting to know another part of the country.

July 19-20 – The 2018 Underclassmen Invitational in Los Angeles, CA.  This is best camp that you will ever attend during your time in High School.  This camp is as much for the parents as it is for the players.  If you get invited to this camp, this is the CAN’T MISS camp of the summer.  Instruction, competition, rankings, seminars, friendships and fun.  Get ready for greatness!

So…. your recommended plan is: 1 (max 2) College Camps, ONE 1-Day CSK Regional Camp (possible 2) & the 2018 Underclassmen Invitational.

Classes of 2022 & 2023 Prospects

June: Private and Group Training with Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Members.  DO NOT attend College Camps. These are not beneficial for you at this time.  Focus on getting better to prepare for the future.

Late June, July & August: Attend the following camps…
June 28 – Los Angeles, CA 1-Day Camp
June 30 – Charlotte, NC 1-Day Camp
July 1 – Atlanta, GA 1-Day Camp
July 9 – Chicago, IL 1-Day Camp
July 22 – Dallas, TX 1-Day Camp
August 5 – Honolulu, HI 1-Day Camp

*Attend the camp in your region.

July 11-12 – TOP GUN in Rock Hill, SC. This is your chance to become an Adidas Freshman All-American (Class of 2022).  I will be selecting 2 K/P’s to participate in this incredible game at TOP GUN.  If you are in the Class of 2022 this is a can’t miss.  For all other youth players (2023 and younger): we feature a youth division at this camp which is unique to any other camp that we run.  This is an incredible opportunity to improve your skills and have fun with others your age.

TO REGISTER CALL: 973-366-5027

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!

So, of course, now you have follow up questions.

Q: My son is a senior to be, won’t his legs get tired?

A: If you want to play college football, this summer should be 100% dedicated to kicking & punting.  To answer the question….YES, they will get tired.  You have to be smart about laying out your summer schedule.  You cannot kick/punt everyday.  Your body needs rest to stay healthy and maintain the ability to perform at your highest level.  Try not to kick/punt on consecutive days.  If you have to kick/punt on consecutive days, take 2 days of rest before the next time you kick/punt.

Q: Many camps are scheduled for the same day?  And if I cannot kick/punt on consecutive days I am going to miss out on many opportunities, so what do I do?

A: It is impossible to be in 2 places at once.  So sometimes you will have to make tough choices.  A college coach can schedule you to come kick/punt for them on an alternate date.  As long as the University is putting on another camp on that day, you can go kick/punt for them.  The coach has to be willing to do this for you.  This is how you will know how bad they really want you.  Call the coach and try to schedule and alternate date.

Q: How do I prioritize which camps are most important?

A: 1. “TOP 12” & “Event Elite”, 2. Underclassmen Invitational 3. FBU Top Gun, 4. Chris Sailer Kicking 1-Day Camps, 5. FBU Regional Camps, 6. College Camps

Q: Camp costs and the travel costs associated with these camps can be very expensive, so what do I do?

A: You will have to prioritize based on the above.  It is important to see other parts of the country if possible.  This will one day make the college decision process much easier.  Again, tough choices.

Q: I am getting a lot of “Invites” from competitors of yours?  Do I have to go to these?

A: I can write a book on this.  But to keep it simple, No.  Invites aren’t invites if they invite everyone.  Our website is used everyday to solicit.  Clever advertising doesn’t equal a quality camp.  Chris Sailer Kicking is the #1 most trusted resource for college coaches nationwide.  Actions speak louder than words.  Believe in Chris Sailer Kicking and will you not be disappointed.

Tips:

•    Be realistic about your skill level when it comes to college camps.  Remember, these are tryouts.  Attend college camps at the level in which you are capable of playing.  This will give you college options.  Attend D1, D2, D3, NAIA, etc. camps where you have a realistic chance of playing.  Otherwise you will simply be spinning your wheels.  Be open minded in your search.
•    There is no way to figure out 100% which Universities will be offering scholarships.  Things are always changing.  Almost every University will take 1 Kicker, 1 Punter & 1 Long Snapper each year as either a scholarship or preferred walk on athlete.  So, all college camps provide opportunity.  Don’t stress yourself out trying to figure out everything that happens behind the scenes.  Their is NO LIST.
•    If a college doesn’t have a kicking camp (common with lower level schools), call the coach and ask for a day that you can kick/punt for them.
•    Don’t kick at a college camp if your are not 100%.  You want to show at your absolute best.  Your performance/results/charts will be used by not only that University, but shared with others as well.  Word travels fast both in the positive and negative.
•    When you travel, take advantage of the opportunity. Visit Universities in the area.  Get a feel for the area or region of the country.  Do not be afraid to simply walk on campus and into the football office.  Tell them you are a Chris Sailer Kicking recruit and would love a tour.  Most Universities will treat you very well.

Setting & Chasing Your Goals: Obtaining All Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt Colors

The question that I get asked all the time is: “When should my son/daughter begin attending your kicking/punting camps?”

This is a complicated question with not one, but many possible answers.

Mostly, my answer is:  “When your son/daughter is ready mentally to handle a camp, not just physically”.

The purpose is to reach your personal goals, not compete with everyone else’s.  Take a look at the objectives that I would set for my son/daughter if kicking/punting was what they had hoped to focus on.  Now, Kicking/Punting is a path to the future.  In this future, a college education is 100% while a place in the NFL is only achieved by less than 1%.

Really, it is all about chasing and obtaining all of those Chris Sailer Kicking colored shirts…

1.) So how do you obtain all colored shirts?  Of course, through hard work and dedication.

This means you must start early.  You are able to attend Chris Sailer Kicking lessons and camps as young as 6th Grade.  You can progress by continuing your training in 7th , 8th , 9th grade . . . all the way through high school, college, etc.  At this level you can collect black, white, navy, green, gray, orange, purple, maroon, and so on though attending Chris Sailer Kicking regional, national and international camps at various locations.  Each shirt is a sign of your hard work and dedication.  What do these color mean? Nothing, just that you have put in the time and the effort toward your craft. The more colors you have, the more camps you have attended.

Other colors are much more meaningful. What do they mean you ask?  Let’s have a look.

2.) The Light Blue Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt (Underclassmen Invitational Logo) = You have been invited to attend the Underclassmen Invitational.

Who is invited? Dedicated sophomores, freshman and youth football players & THEIR PARENTS.  The future for a college education begins here.  This camp was created at the request of college coaches.  You receive instruction and meet your national/international peers.  They will be your friends for life.  You must compete with the best to prepare yourself for your future.  This is the best camp in your younger years that you will ever attend.

3.) The Teal Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt (Camp Champion Logo) = You have attended a Chris Sailer Kicking Regional Camp AND were the overall kicking/punting champion.

These camps take place all over the United States (CA, GA, IL, TX, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, HI, FL currently).  This goal is not an easy one.  Only the best of the best get to stick this feather in their cap.  This is a time to step up against many of the top specialist in the world and make your mark on the national scene.

4.) The Yellow Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt (TOP 12 & Event Elite Logo) = You attended one of the prestigious Las Vegas National Events and were named as a member of the “TOP 12” or “Event Elite”.

Twelve kickers/punters are selected every January in Las Vegas from over the  three hundred kickers/punters in attendance.  An additional fifteen to thirty kickers/punters are selected every May in Las Vegas from over two hundred kickers/punters in attendance.  The odds are against you and being chosen is a huge accomplishment.  This is the best of the best, period.  You must show D1 scholarship ability to earn this color of shirt.

5.) The FBU Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt (FBU Logo) = You have competed not only on a specialist stage, but an all-position football camp stage.

At FBU camps you get instruction at the highest level through the Chris Sailer Kicking staff.  We include Field Goal, Kickoff and Punt film analysis.  FBU is a great venue for exposure through multiple resources even above and beyond what Chris Sailer Kicking provides.  Perhaps, even most importantly, you can get invited to the “TOP GUN” Camp.

6.) The FBU Chris Sailer Kicking TOP GUN Shirt (FBU Top Gun Logo) = You have qualified to participate in the TOP GUN camp through an FBU regional camp.

The exposure that goes along with this opportunity is through the roof!  From this camp, Chris Sailer Kicking will select 7th, 8th and 9th grade FBU All-Americans.  We Also select 2 kickers and 2 punters to participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.  If you are selected as a FBU All-American, you will wear the most honorable Chris Sailer Kicking colored shirt in the nation:

The U.S. Army All-American Jersey!

7.) The Red Chris Sailer Kicking Shirt (Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Logo) = This means that you have proved yourself at the high school level both athletically & physically.

It also means that you have the character to represent Chris Sailer Kicking, to coach and to mentor the next generation of specialists.  This may be the most coveted colored shirt of all.  You begin at the student staff level, can move on to college staff, and eventually you can become a Chris Sailer Kicking Senior Staff Member.

8.) The College Jersey (regardless of color) = This means that your hard work and dedication (and shirt colors earned) has paid off in the ultimate manner.  Hashtag your college and future endeavors for life.

9.) The NFL Jersey (regardless of color).  Whether you make it or not, this is the icing on the cake.  You get to tell your future children that you did it.  Whether you are an All-Pro, a starter or you get cut, the best part is you still have your college education to fall back on.

The color journey and Chris Sailer Kicking journey is complete!

Youth football will earn you a chance to play high school football. High school football will earn you a chance to play college football.  College football will earn you a college degree that you might have not obtained without the help of football.  College football will earn you a chance to play professional football (NFL, CFL, AFL, etc.).  All of the above will earn you a chance to grow from youth, to a young man, to an adult, to a father.  The opportunity and experience will shape the rest of your life.

The goal here is to end your kicking/punting career with this pile of shirts.  You will look back one day and reflect on one of the best times of your life.

See you soon…

Hard Work
