“If you are an aspiring kicker or punter, I would highly recommend Coach McCabe and One On One Kicking.”

One On One Overview
One On One Kicking is the TOP elite training facility and camp for kickers, punters, and long snappers across the globe for all ages; ranging from grade school to high school to college to professional leagues.
The most important aspect of our training program? Quality instruction. Our staff is comprised of former NFL punters, kickers, and long snappers, as well as NCAA All-Americans, All-Conference players, and Ray Guy and Lou Groza Award Winners.
Most importantly, all of our coaches are trained to instruct using similar methodology and drill combinations, meaning sound technique and form are taught consistently at each of our training locations.
Each One On One Kicking Coach is committed to ensuring that our students put in the necessary work to play college football, either as a scholarship player or a walk-on.
Our programs stress the importance of several components of Strength and Conditioning: muscle building (mass), speed training (fast-twitch), and flexibility work (dynamic movement). Each of our training sessions intentionally teaches about each of these components, and we give our trainees guidance about how to work out in a way that’s most beneficial to specialists. Our specialists benefit from the ability to follow a specific plan that creates stronger athletes while also stressing bio-mechanic stability, leading to less “tweaks” and injuries.
Because our players are athletes, it’s important for them to take initiative about how they fuel their bodies. We resource players with nutrition plans and supplement guides, making sure that while training, they’re maximizing their body’s potential. It’s important for kickers, punters, and snappers to build muscle in the safest, most efficient manner, and specialists in our program gain knowledge about how to safely train and properly put on muscle.

Stretching is so often something people neglect to do at the end of a training session because they are too tired to do anything else. One on One recommends athletes engage in both the kicking/punting drills as well as the workouts for optimum results. Before and after each workout you MUST stretch appropriately!
The goals of a dynamic warm up are to:
- Increase blood flow to muscles
- Increase body’s core temperature
- Open up/loosen joints
- Increase nervous system awareness
- Actively stretch muscles to prepare them for the activity that will come
Some examples of what to do for a dynamic warm up include:
- Walking Lunges
- Prisoner Squats
- Lateral Resistance Band Walks
- Toy Soldiers
- Butt Kicks
- High Knees
- Leg Swings
Like any movement that requires a repeatable and dynamic motion, punting, kicking, and snapping requires the development of muscle-memory. Our year-round program was designed to create an environment that builds strength and explosion in our athletes. We focus on technique through drill work and kicking in competitive situations.
The first session for a player who enrolls in our year-round training focuses mainly on teaching the player drills meant to be performed at home and at practice. It is important for the player to understand that our training program, like any athletic training session, requires more than just showing up in order to improve. Real improvement comes from dedication to drills at home and at practice. Our training sessions are meant to check and refine technique, provide a competitive environment, and primarily, provide a work-space to improve with hands-on instruction from our staff.
Competition and Charting
A specialist is not judged by how he can perform alone on an empty field. It’s how that technique holds up in a game that matters. At One On One Kicking, we believe in constant competition and the creation of high-pressure environments. Our trainees are constantly competing with each other and dealing with things like crowd noise (a gauntlet of their peers screaming around them) and the feeling of having all eyes on them, where one punt or kick matters. We also specialize in preparing for competitive combines or expos. Our players consistently place in the top 10 ranking of specialists nationally.
In addition to preparing for other combines, each One On One Kicking location annually charts their athletes individually, creating an extensive database for company rankings of our top performers. Our athletes leave the training program fully equipped to handle the pressure of collegiate kicking or kicking in competition because they’ve done it on a regular basis.
The One On One Kicking prospects page is a great tool that exists as a one page representation of our trainees. We instruct our players in what college coaches want for a highlight video, how to make that highlight video, and how to best represent themselves when in front of a college coach.
In addition to highlight videos, we also help advise players about which college camps they should be attending; in the world of college kicking, getting a scholarship to a particular school is often a matter of timing. Our goal is to help high school players navigate the recruiting waters and come out of their high school seasons having achieved whatever goals they’ve set for themselves.
