please take a look
Can this be worded a little better? Trying to find something that might be more appealing.
Elite Kicking is about helping the kicker/punter achieve their goals, and become the best they can be.
Two helpful thoughts:
One - "kicker/punter," if that term describes two different positions, should not be written this way. The "/" punctuation is not an appropriate shortcut for the word "or," unless you are speaking in text. If, however, the position is a single position listed as "kicker/punter," then this is fine.
Two - your pronouns do not agree with what they modify. You talk about "their goals" and the best "they can be." Whose goals? The kicker/punter. You've listed "the kicker/punter" as a single person - something that my first point might help you correct. If you keep the term as a single person, "their" and "they" are the wrong pronouns because they refer to multiple people. Even "the kicker or punter" is a singular noun - it is a single person that may be one of two positions. You're going to have to pick a gender. I know that sucks, but sometimes you just have to do it. There are a lot of ways to go about gender choice, but the easiest to read is to make the pronoun gender (a) make sense within context; or (b) if neither makes more sense than the other, use your own gender. In this context, the male gender makes more sense. Although I am aware of female kickers and punters, they are less common by far. Use a masculine pronoun if you keep your subject singular.
