Ever feel like there aren’t enough camps for kickers, punters and long snappers? They’re a specialized group for sure! But thanks to Rafter Pro Training in Irvine, there’s a premier camp for these expertise athletes right here in Orange County.

Held on June 28-29, 2014 in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente, Rafter Pro Training 2014 camp is open to all high school and junior college-aged football kickers and punters.

Rafter Pro Training alums and current NFL players, Detroit Lions punter/kicker Sam Martin and Washington Redskins punter Robert Malone will be in camp to offer valuable one-on-one training with camp attendees.

Martin and Malone will work with young athletes on things such as technique and practice skills, offer personal advice, professional consultation and take a few photos while they're at it. As a rookie, Martin finished with the best kickoff average in the NFL and landed the sixth best punting average for 2013 out of all 32 punters in the league.
