We were the first ones to offer kicking camps to rate one kicker/punter against another but not for just ranking purposes but to offer where one specialists is and where the other needs to get to in order to succeed. We know many of our young specialists enjoy seeing the results of others hearing from them firsthand who have gone on their own “Journey”.
The Kickers Zone also was the first dedicated cloud-based environment, software “Coaching On Demand Video Analysis” (CODVA) services portal serving the niche athlete of college/professional bound football kicker/punter “specialists” and the parents and coaches who support these great athletes.
