FINE TUNING FOR THE KICKER OR PUNTER

 

COGNITIVE - KNOWLEDGE OF KICKING

This is the foundation of the two domains.

  • Instructional Training

  • Perform Demonstrations

PSYCHOMOTOR - SKILLS

This is where we pass the knowledge gained into the physical technique of kicking.

  • Skills are developed through repeated practice of kicking and practicing technique.

  • Through positive reinforcement, student-athletes cultivate the self-confidence to learn to grow as kickers. With continued practice, students develop correct techniques and become proficient so the skill becomes a habit and thus becomes muscle memory.

AFFECTIVE - ATTITUDE

We hope that with a fun, safe, easy environment to learn in we hope to build:

  • Positive attitude towards kicking.

  • Interest to continue to practice. We believe this should come from internal motivation.

  • Appreciation of how hard and challenging learning how to kick and punt is.

  • Motivation to be the best all-around student-athlete they can be.

  • Enthusiastic about the next time he/she will get to kick/punt.
