To the Kicking Community:
My son has been training with Brad Bohn at West Coast Kicking Academy for over 3 years and has benefited greatly from working with Brad and his staff. The instruction he has received has helped him continue to improve over this time, which has allowed him to compete at a high level. This training has now taken him to a level that is generating a great deal of interest from colleges across the country.
Brad and his staff teach techniques that enable kicker's to maximize their abilities. They use video very effectively, to breakdown the kick from beginning to end, not only showing the students what their doing well, but where they can improve. Because WCKA trains it kickers in small groups, the boys get a lot of personal instruction, which is very beneficial.
Brad not only teaches kicking, but also takes a sincere interest in the boys and gives them guidance about other things colleges are looking for in their athletes, like good grades and being good human beings, to name a few.
I would highly recommend WCKA to any parent looking to help their child get to the next level as a kicker

Our family has had a long and fruitful teacher/student relationship with Brad. We have been with WCKA for over four years. We have seen the iterations of the business unfold, but more importantly we have seen Brad's wisdom and kindness become manifest with our sons. The kicking aspect of football is a delicate duet of technique and emotional focus; Brad sees these as intertwined and has taught my sons accordingly.
As parents, we want the best for our kids. We achieved that in our time with Brad. He has used the most advanced filming setup of any camp or instructor in the country. He has formed an excellent relationship with both of my sons. He treats each different. He has congratulated them on their success and consoled them when they were not as successful. He has helped them set very high goals and then helped them to achieve those goals in a methodical and clear way.
Along the way Brad has helped each one of our sons look at reality and plan for that reality. While Brad is inherently and optimist, he keeps his students in the here and now. He communicates.
We hope our time with him and WCKA continues for many years.

Brad Bohn has been teaching, instructing and guiding my son for the last 5 years. The weekly personalized instruction including the use of the video system at each practice is testament to Brad's professionalism and commitment to each of his students. He has helped prepare my son both physically and mentally to kick at the D-1 level. I would highly recommend The West Coast Kicking Academy to anyone desiring to improve their kicking game.

Coach Bohn brings the whole package when you are looking for a kicking coach. His personal kicking experience, teaching techniques, background in psychology and a proven track record of training some of the top kickers in the country year after year. Our son opportunity to train with him on a consistent basis is a cornerstone to his achievements. Simply put he would not be where he is without Coach Bohn.

Brad Bohn evaluated my son Louis as a freshman. He was taught the basic fundamentals of kicking and brought along rapidly to become the starting varsity kicker as a sophomore. The continuous training, support, and development made Louis become a nationally recognized college level kicker. I would highly recommend Brad Bohn and West Coast Kicking Academy to any athlete that has the desire "to be the best that they can be."

Three years ago, when Chase was at an athletic crossroad, we came out for a kicking evaluation with great hesitation. To our pleasure with found that it was the best things that he could have ever pursued. The "Family Like" environment, "State of the Art" Video equipment and "One on One" training have taken Chase from an entry-level kicker to an "All League" player. True, there are other places to get kicking instruction, but the level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and results a young man receives from Brad and Alan Bohn (West Coast Kicking) is unparalleled.

After working with you and your dad for the past few years, Zach has become an extremely good kicker and punter. It's apparent that the personal small group sessions have given Zach the ability to stand out at local and national competitions. In fact, I find that WCKA kickers are amongst his competition at these events, which is a further testament to your teaching skills.
Watching Zach hit a field goal or drop a kickoff deep into the end zone, is just as exciting as any touchdown pass. Brad, many thanks to you and Alan for preparing Zach mentally and physically for his senior season.

Brad has helped my son develop the skills that have taken him from being a good soccer player to 1st team All- Orange, 1st team All- CIF division IX, 1st team All- Pacific Coast League in one year. As Joe's fundamentals have improved, Brad has helped Joe with the mental aspects of kicking. In short, Brad has been there for Joe when he needs him.Mark Robles - Father of Joe Robles
"Our son has reached a new level in kicking thanks to Coach Bohn. Coach Bohn is an enormously gifted teacher who trains his students in the most current and proven techniques as well as stressing the importance of training for both physical and mental fitness.
His practices are extremely organized, professional, and enjoyable for his students. Thank you Coach Bohn for your commitment and dedication!"
