Kicking Coach Darren Monnett, of Next Step Kicking, has been selected to coach at the National Camp Series (NCS) Super Camp VII being held February 16-17, 2013, in Orlando, FL.

NCS Super Camp VII is one of the premiere kicking camps in the country. It is a two day kicking camp which will feature some of the country’s best high school kickers, punters and snappers.

Monnett brings a wealth of experience both on and off the field with over 30 years of kicking, punting and teaching skill.

In college Monnett kicked at one of the toughest venues in the country, Northern Illinois University. He won the starting job three times but lost it twice due to injury. In his senior year he ranked in the top 20 punting in Div. 1 all the while kicking in the one of the most weather challenging stadiums in the country. Monnett accomplished all of this standing only 5'9" and 155 lbs.

Monnett showed that with strong leg mechanics, proper technique, and working on the fundamentals, you can succeed at punting.

Darren has used his skill and knowledge to train several high school kickers to award winning seasons and college scholarships. He focuses his teaching to developing game ready kickers and prepares his kickers to be able to transfer what they have learned in practice to be successful in games.

Michael Husted, who founded NCS after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, is now a kicking coach in San Diego, CA. He says Super VII is about great coaches, great instructions and great evaluations and he is looking forward to having Monnett coaching at Super Camp VII.

"All of our NCS coaches are eager to get down to Orlando in February to help teach as well as evaluate the top kickers, punters and long snappers from all across the country and outside the US,” says Husted. "This is the only camp where high school specialists will have a chance to work with some of the best kicking coaches in the world."

"The quality of instructors for our Super Camp is outstanding and continues to grow every year,” says Husted. “The NCS Network is committed to helping young athletes learn proper technique as well as to help them navigate through the recruiting process so that they can leverage their sport to get a college education.”

Husted says that by 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 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.

"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."
