Kearny HS (San Diego, CA) Football Kicking Clinic

San DIego Kicking Camp
TKS Owner John Matich (Kicking Coach)

We had the opportunity to work the kickers from Kearny HS in San Diego, CA the other day. And we found some great talent!  To get things started we started with a dynamic warm-up.  When were done, they were almost ready to call it day. Commonly we get kickers tell us our warm-up is like a “workout”.  Funny but true….

After the warm we hit some basics field goals. Working on proper form and technique. We didn’t go further then 30 yards, because we were focusing on mechanics. In the beginning of the clinic, Luis and Miguel were kicking 60% on field goals. And after some guidance they were up in the 80% range. To commonly, I find kickers trying to kick long field goals to early in their career. They often find themselves getting frustrated and not focusing on the mechanics.

Then we hit some punts. All four punters were inconsistent at best. After a few drills we started getting some punts to turnover. It was nice to see them smile. We got the snapper involved, Carlos, who was firing them back. Working on some operations and with the head coach watching, Luis and a few other of the punters kicked great punts and were praised immediately.

After some work on kickoffs, the students were all ready asking Coach Matich to come back in a few days.

Well see what happens. To be continued!
