The National Camp Series (NCS) is a nationwide network of expert kicking coaches with NFL and College level playing experience whose goal, according to founder Michael Husted, is to provide effective instruction on the field and guidance off of the field that will allow student-athletes the ability to leverage their sport to get a college education.
Husted, who created the National Camp Series (NCS) after kicking in the NFL for 9 years, says he wanted to create the NCS Kicking Coach Directory as a way to ‘show off’ the quality of coaches that are part of the NCS team.
“NCS Associates are some of the best kicking coaches in the country,” says Husted. “NCS coaches provide the highest quality instruction to high school kicking specialists around the country.”
"One of our main goals with the National Camp Series is to create a valuable network of kicking coaches for athletes,” Husted continues. “We want these athletes to easily find a reputable coach in their area that will not only provide them with proper training, but will assist them off the field as they look to play at the next level. “
Husted adds, “I believe that our new website effectively explains who we are and what we are all about. The NCS Kicking Coach Directory acts as a TEAM."
Husted says he is excited about the launch of the new NCS Kicking Coach Directory, but he’s even more excited about the NCS season starting again so soon after a very successful NCS Super Camp in Orlando, Florida early in February.
"2012 is shaping up to be the best year yet for the National Camp Series,” says Husted. “After a strong 2011, and having introduced our Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, we are positioned extremely well to leverage analytics to showcase our athletes, and to provide ‘objective high school kicking specialists statistics' to college and university coaches.”'
Husted says that by utilizing its Kicking IndeX (KIX) Player Rating System, NCS provides an objective evaluation platform for student-athletes who want to showcase their capabilities to colleges and universities for recruiting purposes.
By sorting through over six years of historical event data, the KIX system determines a kicker’s rankings by cross-referencing player data to determine how the athletes stack up against others, both presently and historically.
"The NCS levels the playing field for those who don't want to get caught up in all of the 'politics' that occurs in the kicking industry,” says Husted. “If you can kick, punt or snap, the NCS KIX system will let a young kicking specialist’s skills speak for themselves. No excuses. No explanations."
