Its many facets such as fair catches, first touching, blocking restrictions and more; need to be applied often while athletes are at full speed and the action is evolving quickly second to second.

The Ultimate Book on the Kicking Game provides high school officials with an in-depth look at each segment of those free kicks, onside kicks, punts and scoring kicks. The important new rules regarding the kicking team’s formation are also addressed. There is also a section giving a thumbnail of the differences between NFHS and NCAA rules.
