Billy Vinnedge Kicking Academy will host a National Camp Series (NCS) evaluation event in Santa Marina, CA, on August 19, 2012, according to Camp Director Billy Vinnedge.
Vinnedge has experienced all levels of football. He was a kicker / punter for the San Diego Chargers and has been teaching individuals how to kick for over five years. His goal is to make the Central Coast a powerhouse with Division 1 Kicking Prospects.
Kicking Coach Michael Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, says he is excited about the NCS season starting again so soon after a very successful NCS Super Camp in Orlando, Florida in February and working with Billy Vinnedge on his NCS evaluation events.
By utilizing our 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,” says Husted.
“By sorting through 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,” he says.
Husted says kickers and coaches are seeing the value of the KIX system and NCS is showing signs of strong growth in 2012.
"2012 is shaping up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series,” says Husted. “After a strong 2011, and having introduced our Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, we are positioned extremely well to leverage analytics to showcase our athletes, and to provide ‘objective high school kicking specialists statistics' to college and university coaches.”
Husted adds the NCS is not just about player rankings but quality coaching as well, like the coaching provided by Billy Vinnedge and the Billy Vinnedge Kicking Academy.
“NCS Associates are some of the best kicking coaches in the country,” says Husted. “Their goal, and the goal of NCS is to provide high quality instruction to high school kicking specialists around the country.”
Husted says great coaching and objective evaluations is what kick coaching should be about.
"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."
"We don’t rank the athletes...they rank themselves through the NCS KIX system," he says.
