Kohl's Kicking In Action Picture

Kohl's Staff & Mission

Kohl's goal is to help every motivated athlete attain their maximum level of performance in kicking, punting, and snapping. We want to teach our athletes the correct techniques and practice habits that will allow them to reach their full potential. We will help the athletes who prove to be talented enough to move up to the next level in football. We want our camps/private lessons to be run in a way that each athlete gains from our staff's expertise and insight.  When you look at our staff of 90+ plus coaches you will see a group that is dedicated to helping each camper who attends a Kohl's event. We also understand that football can be a great teacher about life. We want each Kohl's athlete more prepared to succeed in the game of football and also in the bigger game of life.


Kohl's staff of 90+ coaches have some of the most impressive resumes in college and professional football!  On any Saturday or Sunday during the fall you will be able to see many of these staff members put their teaching into action either on TV or by attending games in person.
