Instruction in placekicking, punting, snapping, and holding is provided as a supplement to spring football practice and as a means to encourage special teams players from various schools to practice together throughout the summer months. All one-day clinics are organized by a local parent or coach who receives the registrations and arranges for facilities. All instruction is provided by Carol A. White (former coach at Georgia Tech and director of the Auburn Kicking Academy) and a regional group of college players, most of whom were themselves campers for many years during high school. Participants spend the day with positive, success-minded athletes who teach effective drills and share their experiences. Everyone is encouraged to establish obtainable academic and athletic goals. The schedule for 2015 - 2017 is below. Contact information and registration forms may be printed directly from this website by clicking on "Click Here" for that camp.

One-day clinics are not competitions. They offer coaches and parents an affordable opportunity to bring specialized teaching to beginners and to players from other positions who must also kick, punt, or snap. Because teenage athletes are constantly growing, even experienced players benefit from the focus on balance and drillwork. Spring is the perfect time to initiate good practice habits for off-season development.
Graduating seniors who anticipate making the transition to college football in the fall should attend these clinics. Staff members can evaluate current performance standards and suggest areas needing the greatest concentration of practice time. Emphasis will be on drills, not on competition.
To register for a one-day clinic, print out the application form, complete all requested information, and mail the form and a check or money order to the address specified for that event. (Do not mail to Coach White in Athens.) Use a separate form for each person registering. Credit cards may not be used for payment. If you miss the mailing deadline, call the clinic director to verify how many athletes at what positions you will register on the day of the clinic. No registrations will be taken by fax or e-mail, unless the clinic director arranges to receive the information. All registrants who miss the mailing deadline must pay cash upon arrival at the instruction site.
One-day clinics will be held regardless of inclement weather conditions. (To accommodate a snow storm in Greensboro, NC, on March 30, 2003, basic drills were taught into the wooden sections in a locker room.) Bring sufficient clothing to stay warm and dry (or to prevent an early sunburn). Drills focus on body control, not on ball flight. Gym walls, soccer goals, baseball batting cages, and hallways actually focus attention narrower than football fields. Each participant should bring both tennis shoes and cleated shoes (no sandals), a football marked with player or school name, and any needed tees. Lunch is always provided at no additional expense.
