McDaniel College Punting Competition
The camp competitons are a blast.
Shown here is the McDaniel College punting competition. The playing surface is the next generation of artificial turf "field turf" which was installed by the Baltimore Ravens.

Andy McTeague, Straight On Kicker
Does NKS work with straight on kickers?
You bet. Some of the top placekickers in the National Kicking Service program are straight on.

Is soccer style kicking superior?
Absolutely not. Lab and field tests prove the skills equal. The preference for each kicker is based mostly on body type and athletic experience. Here is Andy McTeague in 8th grade at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy Camp. Andy went on to star at St. Johns Prep (Massachusetts).

West Coast Staff
The NKS staff and camp counselors are hard working and dedicated...
but they also know how to have fun. Shown here is our West Coast Staff from left to right: West Coast Director Jim Power, Jeff Ferrier-San Jose State, Ryan Slack-Idaho State, Coach Dana Roach-Saddleback College, Mike Hughes-San Diego State, Brian Borreson-Utah, and Rafael O'Campo-San Diego.

Tonya Butler, Girl Kicker
Girls attend NKS camps every year.
Some notables have been Darci Hata (Hawaii), Nicki Edelman (Pennsylvania), Stephanie Weiner (Penn State), and Heidi Garrett (California). Most well recognized may have been Tonya Butler (shown here), a Georgia Scholastic All State placekicker who gained national acclaim.

Max Shaw, Youth Kicker
All levels of players attend NKS camps...
Beginners, youth league, high school and college All Americans, and aspiring professionals. For most activities campers are in groups according to their age/skill level. On the left is Max Shaw, age ten at the time, at the Stetson University camp in Florida. By the end of camp Max had hit a 35 yard field goal.

Youth Division Campers
Youth Division Campers
While NKS summer camps attract top high school and college players across the USA they are also appropriate for ages 10 and up. It's a huge advantage for these stars of tomorrow to be exposed to the basic sound principles of placekicking, punting, and long snapping. For most activities players are placed in their own age group. Shown here are youth division players at our Queens University of Charlotte camp.
