Meet with a coach

Schedule a session with a coach for individual, small group, or team training.

Bob McNeel

Session Deliverables:

• Cultivate a Diverse Kicking Toolbox

• Develop Space Recognition Skills to Identify Kicking Opportunities 

• Develop Tactical Understanding of Several Ways to Apply Pressure by Kicking

• All Sessions Customizable to Suit Individual and Team


Goals ​A Word from Coach McNeel:

Kicking is a true weapon on the pitch with pinpoint accuracy, tactical pop kicks over a blitzing line, bouncing grubber kicks through the line to an oncoming wing, long booming boots will drive defenses crazy – both winning field position battle and tiring opposing forwards.
