detailed kicking, punting, and long/short snapping academies in the nation. With the ability to train within a private environment inside a 75,000 square foot sports facility (See Photos Below), all athletes can train year around...despite the weather conditions! This environment also allows the athlete to focus on form and technique, maximizing the potential for perfecting their swing. Unlike many other camps out there, ProForm Kicking Academy focuses on the many very specific attributes that are involved within each swing of the kick. Much like the golf swing, there are a number of problematic issues that need to be addressed on a consistent basis. It takes very experienced coaches to identify each of these specific movements and correct them when needed. The ProForm Kicking coaches have 35+ combined years of recognizing proper and improper movements within the kicking and punting motions...not only by visually seeing them, but by experiencing them as well. Both coach Hollis and coach Gaetano have kicked thousands of footballs at ALL levels of football and have learned to identify and correct any problems they have encountered. That is what separates an average kicker from a great kicker...and ProForm Kicking Academy will assist in that transformation!


ProForm Kicking Academy Coaches:

Coach Mike Hollis and Coach Jim Gaetano, have worked together on mastering the most efficient and effective ways of kicking and punting!

The amount of knowledge that the ProForm Kicking Academy coaches have learned over 35+ combined years is unparalleled in the industry!

  • Mike Hollis, retired NFL kicker of 9 years. Mike played for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, and New York Giants. He represented the AFC in the 1998 Pro Bowl in Hawaii, after leading the NFL in scoring (1997 - 134 points). Mike has worked with 5 different Pro Bowl punters during his NFL career, learning from and coaching each of them.
  • Jim Gaetano, long-time high school, college, and professional kicking coach (15 years with Mike Hollis). Jim has had numerous tryouts with NFL teams and spent the 1987 preseason with the Kansas City Chiefs. He has coached many NFL kickers and punters including former All-Pro Punter Brian Moorman of the Buffalo Bills. In addition, a former NFL agent of 9 years, Jim has established solid relationships with college and NFL coaches.
