The School of Kicking began with the coaching career of Dr Dave Alred. The world’s best kicking coach, who taught Jonathan Webb, Stuart Barnes, Rob Andrew, Neil Jenkins, Matt Burke, Morne Steyn, Jonny Wilkinson, George Ford and Jonny Sexton how to kick, and is now passing on his wisdom to the next generation of coaches and kickers.
Our tutors Tony Yapp and Stuart Alred combine the experience of kicking goals in the top three tiers of English rugby, RFU coaching qualifications and years of coaching experience. They have also been through an intense coaching programme with Dr Dave Alred and continue to be mentored by him.
We are passionate about learning and helping people get better. International, professional, semi-professional, grass roots, men and women, players of any age we love to help teams and individuals develop their game.
You may have been told you need to be more consistent for selection, you may have even been told you just can’t kick or you’re not a kicker. We love to prove that with shared enthusiasm for learning and our expertise anyone can improve.
The key to a good kicker at a very high level is confidence in knowing that where you want the ball to go your capable of doing it. That's what we are here to help you achieve. - The School of Kicking
