Performance videosCollege coaches and recruiters desperately need access to video footage that allows them to identify the talent of prospective players who will meet their team needs. During the evaluation process, athletes must impress college coaches by displaying their competitive skills – ideally through video of actual game performances. Even though this may be ideal - game footage may not always display the true talents of an athlete – or it may not even be available.
Performance videos provide an innovative way for athletes to complement the evaluation process by "capturing" the athlete in a competitive setting that will display individual technique as well as the capability of each kicker, punter, or snapper. College coaches will be able to “see for themselves” the individual performance of each athlete allowing them to effectively measure distance, record times, score accuracy and calculate the results.
Performance videos are highly recommended for college-bound student-athletes in pursuit of recruitment and scholarship opportunities. Videos will be uploaded to YouTube for placement on the prokicker.com website. Athletes who purchase this service will have access to recorded footage online for individual marketing as well as for personal and shared viewing.
Every college football program in the country will have instant access to view every Performance Video through recruiting links 24/7 on Prokicker.com. Head Coaches, Special Team Coaches, and Recruiting Coordinators who are in immediate need of a kicking, punting or long snapping prospect will be informed of this evaluation method through direct phone contact. Information on prospective players will also be promoted via USPS, email, press releases, and using social media websites like YouTube.
Performance Videos are optional and available to every participant competing in the National Kicking Championship. Filming will be done during the initial round of each kicking, punting, and long snapping competition. This provides every athlete the same opportunity to be "captured" on film while performing in a competitive setting. Athletes that advance to the final round of competition will receive an additional Performance video free of charge.
In today's game, college coaches and recruiters want more than finding raw athleticism in a player. They want to find athletes who have taken the initiative to develop their skills and prepare for competition. By attending the National Kicking Championship, the first step has been taken. By creating a Performance Video, athletes will have taken the next.
A minimum of four complete skill sequences are recorded for each video. Skill sequence options include field goal kicking, punting, long snapping, and kickoffs.
Performance Video: Field Goal Kicking, Punting, or Long Snapping - $100 / Kick-offs - $50
