Kick-It Trainer is the perfect soccer gift to improve ball-kicking skills

kickit-trainer

Most adolescent brother and sister relationships consist of teasing, hair pulling and kicking. But in the case of teenage siblings Erik and Kirsten Nergaard, “kicking” was the impetus behind their innovative new invention, Kick-it Trainer.

Kick-it Trainer is a patent-pending piece of sporting equipment which enables athletes of all levels to hone and improve their ball-kicking skills in rapid fire succession without having to chase after the ball each time, or worry about it landing in the neighbor’s yard.

The idea for Kick-it Trainer was born when Kirsten and her brother, Erik were playing tetherball one day at a nearby school. They both agreed that it would be great if their soccer ball was tethered as well. The idea was too good to let go of and when they returned home, they designed and then built the very first Kick-it out of plumbing pipe from Home Depot.

I had the opportunity to test this product out first-hand and Kick-it Trainer truly lives up to its promise. It is a great tool for any soccer player who wants to practice their kicking style over and over, without the need to chase after the ball. Also, by continuously repeating the kicking motion, Kick-It Trainer helps build muscle memory while also helping the player perfect their kicking style. You can Kick-It with your right foot, or build your performance in your left foot. Kick-It is great for kids as young as nine years old and it’s the perfect tool for American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) teams nationwide.

Furthermore, Kick-it Trainer’s ball sling accepts any size sporting ball, and the unit is lightweight, portable, sturdy, and a breeze to set up and breakdown. Plus, it can be used both indoors (with the aid of 150 pound weights) or outdoors.

Kick-It Trainer retails for $149.99 but it is on sale this holiday season for $134.99 on their http://kickittrainer.com/shop/. You can also follow them on Facebook at Facebook.com/KickItAthletics or on Twitter @KickItTrainer.

    I seem to recall there being a similar, possibly infomercial-only device in the 1990s called the “Kickmaster”. The accented pitchman used to exclaim “The KICKMASTER! So you can practice your foot-ball!”

    Anyone remember that? I’m having trouble finding anything related on YouTube.
