FINE TUNING FOR THE KICKER OR PUNTER
COGNITIVE - KNOWLEDGE OF KICKING
This is the foundation of the two domains.
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.
