Being a Kohl’s Coach for over ten years, the one thing I hear the most from athletes is talk of their star rating & ranking and what they want to achieve, especially during the Showcase season. But I wonder how many have thought about what it takes to achieve it and how to make it happen with their training? I am a big believer of setting high goals, laying out a detailed plan and doing everything in my power to try and achieve them.
1-Day Training Camps
This camp's major focus is on training and improving but we will chart campers at this camp. Kohl's is actively searching the country for the best prospects. A strong Kohl's philosophy is that every kicker be exposed to punting. Andy Kohl went to college a kicker and left a punter. If an athlete has good leg speed they should be able to be proficient at both disciplines when proper technique is applied.
Most high school and college coaches will value a specialist more if they are able to do both the kicking and punting for their teams. We want to expose each kicker to both disciplines. In the previous 9 years we have had a few athletes that want to just focus on punting. We have tried to create a flexible schedule where the pure punters come to camp at 11:30 warm-up, get filmed, and join the camp for the afternoon session.
The one day camp is a great way to get expert coaching and training in a short time period. The major difference between the 1 day and 2 day camps is the amount of time to practice and execute drills. The core fundamentals and coaching will be the same.
