Retired 9 Year NFL All-Pro Kicker Mike Hollis!
With the affiliation of Jacksonville Ice & Sportsplex, ProForm Kicking Academy offers one of the most detailed kicking, punting, and long/short snapping academies in the nation. With the ability to train within a private environment inside a 55,000 square foot sports facility, all athletes can train year around...despite the weather conditions! This environment also allows the athlete to focus on form and technique, maximizing the potential for perfecting their swing. Unlike many other kicking camps out there, ProForm Kicking Academy focuses on the many very specific attributes that are involved within each swing of the leg. Much like the golf swing, there are a number of problematic issues that need to be addressed on a consistent basis. It takes very experienced coaches to identify each of these specific movements and correct them when needed. The PKA coaches have 30+ combined years of recognizing proper and improper movements within the kicking and punting motions...not only by visually seeing them, but by experiencing them as well. Both Coach Hollis and Coach Gaetano have kicked thousands of footballs at all levels and have learned to identify and correct any problems they have encountered. That is what separates an average kicker from a great kicker...and ProForm Kicking Academy will assist in that transformation!
