January Kicking Camp- Northern Specialists Camp- January 11, 2014

Welcome to the Northern Specialists Camp- January Kicking and Snapping Camp.

Coach Chris Husby of Special Teams Football Academy and Coach Brian Jackson of Team Jackson Kicking will be teaming up to run our 1st Annual Northern Specialist Camp on Saturday, January 11, 2014 in St Cloud, MN at St Cloud State University inside the 'Husky Dome.'  This camp is open for Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers of all skill level.

Our 1st Annual Kicking Camp.
This will be their 3rd camp together.  Last winter they ran their first game together call the 'Southern Specialist Camp' which had over 45 specialists attend covering 10 states.  Their second camp will be their 2nd Annual 'Southern Specialists Camp' held December 13-14, 2013.

Our Northern Specialist Camp covers multiple aspects in the kicking game for High School, Youth (ages 12-19), as well as JUCO/Collegiate Specialists. This camp is open for Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers of all skill level.  This camp is designed to help your athlete become better through instruction, be evaluated, improve confidence in own ability, prepare specialists for LARGER SHOWCASE CAMPS, as well as get exposed to College Coaches.   For the JUCO specialist, this is a chance to get evaluated and exposed to college coaches for transferring.  College kickers can expect to receive great instruction as well as compete and kick against other great college specialists.  PUNTING will be conducted in the dome.

Sample videos:

Almost all videos were the direct result of guys that moved onto the next level because they didn't have good HUDL film, and they were sending our videos out.  Plus Coach Jackson & Husby sent them out on the athlete's behalf.   These videos were deemed icing on the cake or the affirmation/confirmation for various scholarship offers.
