I completed my second full practice with Shockwave Thursday night. I felt I am getting better timing with my holder and snapper and hit a few good kickoffs. In this league if you can pinpoint your kickoffs, it will help with coverages. There are not nets as there are in AFL and AF2. We have a final walk-thru Friday night and then its game time. My field goals were good as we hit only extra points, but they felt solid. I spent most the practice doing balance drills, a dynamic flxiblity program and on-side kicks. I wanted to show the team I was working as well.
The team is excited as they have been practicing for a three weeks now and are ready to hit someone else. We play the LA Lynx on Saturday and the team management is ready to show San Diego what Arena football is about. I have had over 30 ticket requests from family, friends and kickers that I work with. They are ready to see me kick!
It will be a busy weekend with the San Diego Kicking Compeition Saturday morning and quick stop over at the Martin Bayless Foundation and then to the game. I also have kicking lessons on Sunday! Not to mention finishing two buisness plans for graduate school. The life of a kicking coach….
I will let you know about the walk-thru friday night.
One thought on “Second Full Practice”
Good luck John! I am also an arena kicker, and today will be my first professional game. All i can do now is relax and rely on my training…. ill let everyone know how it goes.- Ryan Harrison, LEHIGH VALLEY OUTLAWZ
