We don’t rank the athletes. They rank themselves through the National Camp Series (NCS) KIX system.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2011
The National Camp Series (NCS) a network of expert kicking coaches across the country will be hosting a number of kicking events throughout the country the weekend of Oct. 15-16, 2011.
Utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
By utilizing over six years of historical event data, the KIX system determines a kicker’s rankings by cross-referencing player data to determine how the athletes stack up against others, both presently and historically.
The National Camp Series works with some of the best kicking coaches in the country to provide high quality instruction to kicking specialists around the country.
Kicking specialists can then attend NCS events and objectively demonstrate their skills through an NFL style workout. The results of these workouts are then entered into the NCS KIX system for colleges and universities coaches throughout the country to review.
The National Camp Series (NCS) was created by nine year NFL kicking veteran Michael Husted. Husted, who wasn't heavily recruited out of high school, or drafted into the NFL, says he empathizes with those young kickers who have the ability and desire to leverage their sport to get a college education, but aren’t in the ‘spotlight’ when it comes to recruiting. He says the NCS KIX system addresses that issue.
"The NCS levels the playing field for those who don't want to get caught up in all of the 'politics' that occurs in the kicking industry,” says Husted. “If you can kick, punt or snap, the NCS KIX system will let a young kicking specialist’s skills speak for themselves. No excuses. No explanations." Husted goes on to say that, “We don’t rank the athletes...they rank themselves through the NCS KIX system.”
