Professional Kicking/Punting Instruction

Testimonials

"I met Billy a couple years ago, when my son decided to leave soccer to pursue football. Immediately, two thoughts came to my mind upon meeting him. One, he has a tremendous skill set to work with kids. His calm and confident style allows him to get in touch with each kicker in an effective way. Two, his skill level and knowledge of kicking is unparalleled in the Central Coast. He can spot subtle issues and know how to correct them immediately. He has brought great confidence in my son. Thank you Billy!"

"I first started to kick in the 8th grade and I still continue to kick today for the Paso Robles Bearcats. I was moved up to varsity during my sophomore year of high school with the help of Coach Vinnnedge. He is an outstanding mentor and coach! He has the ability to teach you how to kick and punt with perfection and prepare you mentally and physically for the challenges ahead. If you are interested in kicking and would like to pursue kicking, I highly suggest working with Billy to put yourself at your highest potential!"

"In 35 years of coaching high school football Billy Vinnedge is one of the finest kicking coaches I have encountered. Not only is Billy a great technician of punting and kicking, he does a fantastic job of preparing kickers in the mental aspects of kicking.  Billy is very personable and has the innate ability to individually tailor his teaching to the needs of the player. Billy has tutored our kickers for years and has consistently produced All-League, All-County and All-State kickers. Any young kicker, who is serious about punting or kicking, would be wise to attend his camps."

"My name is Garrett Owens and I handled all the kicking duties at Arroyo Grande High School this year.  I kicked 11 field goals (long of 52) and was third in the nation in kickoff touch backs ( Max Preps) this year. I could not have achieved this without quality instruction from Coach Billy Vinnedge. Coach Vinnedge started working with me my freshman year on proper technique and continues to work with me through out the year.  I received first team all league and first team all CIF with the help of Billy as my personal kicking instructor."

"Hey, my name is Austin Robinson and I am a senior kicker/punter at Arroyo Grande High School. I want to share with you how much Billy has helped me become the kicker I am today. I met Billy when I was a sophomore in high school and I didn't know how to kick other than what I had learned in soccer. Billy worked with me for that whole summer, teaching me the proper mechanics I needed to become a successful kicker. He made up fun and helpful drills, intense work outs and educational film study. When I became a junior Billy worked with me everyday pushing me to achieve greatness and wouldn't let me give up on myself. Because of this I was named first team all county punter in SLO county. I also had 41 for 42 on PAT's and I had 52 kickoff's with 36 of them for touchbacks. Also in my junior of my first varsity sport Billy insisted to teach me a trick onside kick even though we didnt use it. In the 1st playoff game we used the onside kick and I recovered it. Then going into my senior year he continued to work with me to perfect my skills and in the first 5 games I was leading the section with the best punt average and most balls inside the 20. Billy is a great coach and a great friend. I have learned alot from him and how ever far I go in my kicking career I have Billy to thank for every day of it. I hope u choose to make Billy one of your instructors and u get to know him as a person as well. From one kicker to another fellow kicker, Billy can make you one of the best, but you have to work hard for it and listen to what he says very carefully. I wish the best of luck to all u future kickers."

"Billy, thank you so much for helping me with my kicking this season. You are a great mentor and an amazing coach. You were very patient with me and helped me with every litttle detail. Even though I came in half way through the season, in just a week or two you had me kicking like I had been kicking for a year. I had a great experience learning the precision needed for successful placement. My plan is to continue kicking  hoping to make it to a D-1 team. I am looking forward to going to your new camp,  "Billy Vinnedge Kicking Academy."
