Phase 3 Kicking is led by Coach Chris Husby. Coach Husby has been a professional kicking coach for over 12 years. He is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas and has been training kickers, punters, and long snappers at the high school, college, and professional levels.
Coach Husby is also the owner of Special Teams Football Academy (STFA).
STFA brings together some of the best football coaches and top experts in the Midwest to help kicking specialists reach their highest potential. They focus on special teams’ instruction, and all of our instructors are former kickers, punters, and long snappers, who have trained and competed at the highest level, whether as an NFL Professional, free agent, or college-level specialist. Based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, STFA trains athletes from the Midwest, Canada, and many other countries around the globe. They offer year-round coaching and instruction on all aspects of special teams, including kicking, punting, and long-snapping, so that you get the best chance with college recruiters.
Chris Husby is an excellent coach. He is easy-going, humble, observant, caring, and has an ability to teach kicking concepts in a logical and easy-to-understand fashion. He is detailed, and honest. As a former specialist himself, he recognizes the challenges specialists face in the sport. He began working with my son, Miguel, when Miguel was an underclassman in high school. He taught him regularly during Miguel's high school years, and we believe he was fundamental in helping Miguel develop his kicking technique and maximizing his abilities. Miguel walked on to the University of Iowa football team, and eventually earned the starting job. He led the kicking teams to national prominence during his two years as a starter for the U of Iowa. Miguel is now preparing to compete for a kicking job in the NFL, and feels well-prepared, in part due to the strong foundation in the technical aspects of kicking he developed as a result of Chris' instruction

I remember my first lesson with Coach Husby was really different. I could tell how much he cares about what he does and coaching people. He has helped me grow as an athlete and a man. He has also helped me from being a high school kicker to now a division 1 athlete and I am forever grateful to him and the entire coaching staff. Honestly, I’m forever grateful!
Eddie, Big 12 Kicker
I have worked with Coach Husby over the past several years and have been impressed with his diligence in evolving and updating his knowledge of special teams. As a long snapper I have a perspective on special team’s coaches that is somewhat skewed to just the kickers and punters. When I first met coach Husby our initial drills were simple yet highly effective in presenting proper form and technique; in continuation, our drills developed into targeted, detailed aspects of the craft. While some kicking coaches know a little about snapping, others such as Husby take what they know and build it upon experience and by a constant passion to pursue knowledge even in finite detail.
Raymond, SEC Long Snapper
As a coach, Chris provided Alex the tools he needed to keep improving as a high school kicker into a D1 FBS kicker. Alex has a passion to be the best and under Chris’s leadership he has been able to keep progressing with each step of this journey.
As a parent, Chris has been a wealth of knowledge for us. Had he not encouraged Alex to attend college specialist camps, I am not sure we would have attended any. Alex’s attendance at these camps opened up some big doors that led to scholarship offers.
Parents, if you are looking for a man of integrity and knowledge to invest in your son or daughter, my wife and I completely endorse Chris and his team of coaches. Alex has been blessed to work with some of the top kicking coaches in the country and Chris and his team is right there with them. What Chris brings to the table is the ability to invest in the whole person, not just the athlete.
Rich Probert, Father of former Liberty University & Iowa State Kicker
Coach Husby is a great guy who knows everything there is to know about Special Teams. I would highly recommend any specialist in need of training or refinement to contact Chris as he knows what he is talking about and will help to make you a better and more well-rounded specialist. He is a guy that truly cares about Specialists and he wants to help them achieve their goals whether it to be the starter on their high school team or to make it to Division 1
Patrick Le Corre, Former MAC Ball State University Kicker/Punter
Working closely with Chris Husby has enabled me to appreciate his outstanding qualities as a person and a Special Teams trainer/coach. Chris is a person of integrity; honesty and strong principles are the pillars of his character. He has become an exceptional coach of his expertise. and the stellar success of his students are proof of his skill as a teacher. Chris goes the extra mile for his kids, and that has allowed many of his students to achieve their dreams. I highly recommend Chris Husby
Coach Tom Feely, Feely Kicking & Father of 5 collegiate kicking children
I first met Coach Husby in between my sophomore and junior year of college in mobile Alabama, at a camp he was coaching at. I was in between leaving a junior college and looking to find my next school to play at and continue my education. Coach Husby did an amazing job not only coaching me but also helping me find a school that would be a good fit for me. Coach Husby is an amazing coach who is a class act and does things the right way. I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn how to kick or snap. Or anyone who is looking to better their craft
Aaron Van Dyk, Former Southwest Minnesota State University & NFL Free Agent Long Snapper & Now LS Coach
Chris is one of the great men in the Kicking Industry. He is a trustworthy mentor and passionate about the kickers he trains. He is absolutely the right coach for a high school and college kicker for life on and off the field.
Jon Coppens, Former Big 12 University of Texas Longhorns K
...Chris ran an outstanding camp. My son is new to kicking and to see how they worked with kids at all levels was impressive. Their patience and attention to detail shows how good their veteran kickers are. I am shocked with the improvement I have seen in just a few sessions and can't wait to see what a few years with these guys can do. Thank you both.

I had an amazing experience at this camp. It was very well run by the staff and they were always by your side giving advice after each and every kick. Great college helpers too! Look forward to attending camp next year! - Camp Attendee
Kicker, Camp Attendee
The camp was a fantastic experience for my son (kicker) and his long snapper. They both truly enjoyed the experience and professional staff as well as camaraderie with their fellow special teams athletes. I would highly recommend this camp for any special teams athlete for training, good competition and development of great relationships!
