Intro to NFL Blocking
Long snapping is a very competitive position, and there are often only subtle differences in blocking technique between long snappers on NFL rosters and long snappers with day jobs. Unfortunately, the styles and techniques taught in the pros are frequently different than what is, and what is not taught in college. Fortunately for Special Teams University members, we teach these NFL techniques ahead of your pro day, so you’ll have a leg up on your competition!

Frequently Asked Questions
Does virtual coaching work?
That's a great question that many parents and athletes have. Many athletes have negative idea about virtual coaching because they have never experienced a Virtual Lesson with Coach Stelter! The most detailed lesson you will ever have will come from meeting face to face with the most detailed expert on the subject. Any question you ever had will be answered, and you will learn more in one Virtual Lesson with Coach Stelter than hours on a field at ANY camp. RESULTS happen consistently with Virtual Lessons.
How quickly can I improve?
Improving is a PROCESS! There are no instant fixes or "bandaids" here. We dig deep into the problem to find the solution to all of your issues/inefficiencies. The longer the membership, the more results you will see. Every lesson we build on what we installed at the previous lesson. You WILL see results if you buy in, trust the process and understand that there is no instant gratification with REAL change!
Can I just watch a Youtube video?
Absolutely not. Anyone can post videos on YouTube which means you need ZERO qualifications to do so. If you want to improve, find out what YOU need to work on. Sometimes watching videos on youtube can be beneficial if you're watching someone with great technique! The problem is that there are a lot of pretty good snappers that utilize their athleticism more than their technique. Instead of developing bad habits online, just purchase a Membership and ensure you're doing everything correctly!
How do Virtual Long Snapping Lessons Work?
Every month, Members will schedule a video call with Coach Stelter where they will learn about their snapping, what they can improve, and how they are going to improve it. They will be prescribed drills to perform to improve their specific issues. This call can be done at home, or from the couch--anywhere really!--as long as the reception is good and the athlete can take notes.
After the video call, Members are expected to send film of themselves performing the prescribed drills. Athletes will get feedback on every drill until perfection is attained. Every athlete will be held to the highest standard.
What can I expect?
Special Teams University trains the best long snappers in the NFL and CFL, as well as College and HS teams around the world. This is all done though 1 on 1 sessions. Coach Stelter promises that with his teaching along with your drive and willingness to learn, YOU WILL see the #RESULTS
I started working with coach Stelter this past summer in Austin with the private lessons and it was the best decision I have made for my career. After the private lessons shortly after I purchased the 4 month membership for the upcoming season. I was in competition for the starting spot and with the help of coach Stelter I won the spot and started the whole season. It did not just stop there though we where in contact every week, he is always quick to reply and interested in how you’re doing. We continued to work throughout the season and I improved and became more confident in my abilities each game. I recommend this service to anyone that wants to bring their snapping to the next level and have a coach that genuinely cares about your performance other than just being a number at some other camp. I will also be continuing to work with coach Stelter to continue perfecting my craft!
I went to several camps from January to July 2017 and felt like I improved as a snapper, until I spent two days with Coach Stelter. I went in thinking I was throwing that at 35mph with decent accuracy, and also used a “release point” to finish with a lot of physical effort in my snaps. Now, I snap with less effort and average around 38 mph with excellent accuracy. I saw more improvement in two days with Special Teams U than I did over a 7-month stretch with 5 different camps/coaches. I’ve totally transformed in all aspects of my long snapping during my time with Special Teams U! Real results happy with Coach Stelter.
With spring practice (OTAs, mini camps) now finished in my 3rd year. I want to take the time to send a huge appreciation to my man Kyle Stelter founder and owner of Special Teams University. Those who may not know, I had never snapped a ball in a football game, up till last off season, since 10th grade in high school. Last off-season I made a conscious effort to improve my snapping, but I was still focused on playing my natural linebacker/core special team positions. Through all of the struggles of last off-season and the hard work I became the full time snapper. Last season was my first doing so and with the help of Vinatieri and Sanchez we became a solid unit. Good enough will never be good enough, when better is required. With Special Teams U and Kyle Stelter…. through 4 virtual sessions…from here in Indianapolis, I was coached to tweak my grip, balance, core activation to make my snap with less effort, my velocity increased dramatically, and my locations and accuracy drastically improved with it. So thank you to Special Teams U for the coaching! Cant wait to see where this season is going to take us!
After my stint with the Oakland Raiders, I ordered a Virtual Lesson and learned a ton from Coach Stelter. I learned a better grip for myself and learned how to follow through far more efficiently. I went from being a near one-handed snapper to snapping with both hands with far better control, speed, and consistency. This was all within a few Virtual Lessons. I knew this wasn’t enough though; I had to get with Coach Stelter to see what his training was really about. So I flew into Eau Claire Wisconsin and worked with Coach Stelter for two days. Let me tell you, in those two days I understood why so many were going to him for snapping lessons. In those two days we really hammered away at my technique and really emphasized snapping more efficiently. If you want someone who has made snapping a part of their everyday life talk to Coach Stelter and schedule a Lesson. The man can get all the way down to the physics of ball movement and how placement affects the balls flight and rotation. It was truly a great experience and I came away feeling far more confident. Coach Stelter is definitely someone you want in your corner for snapping advice. Thanks again Coach!
