Kicking Camp Comes to Tampa
Kicking camp coming to Tampa A camp geared toward a neglected football unit is coming to Tampa. By Katherine Smith, Bright House Sports Network The football offseason is filled with numerous seven-on-seven tournaments and lineman camps geared at helping players improve their games. One position that sometimes gets overlooked is special teams – until now. The Rainmaker Kicking, Punting and Long Snapping Camp will feature small group lessons for rising seventh graders to rising seniors that will help understand the kicking and punting game better. There will also be various guest speakers on hand to discuss a variety of topics. Tom Feely, of Feely Athletics, is one of the organizers. His sons have succeeded as kickers at the high school, collegiate and professional levels. He will be aided at the camp by various high school assistant coaches. “This is a position that is neglected for variety of reasons,” Plant assistant coach Tyler Rhodes said. “That is why Feely Athletics has developed a camp to assist kickers and long snappers with teaching them fundamental and experience techniques. We’ll provide the players with the tools they need for successful special teams careers.” Unique to this football camp, it’s open to girls. The camp is scheduled for July 9 at the Cambridge Christian School in Tampa. For information, call (813) 382-4620 or log onto FeelyAthletics.com.
