Boys and girls ages 6-15 are invited to try out their skills while having fun at the annual NFL Punt, Pass and Kick Competition.
The City of Friendswood will be hosting their annual local NFL Punt, Pass, and Kick competition on Thursday, Sept. 29, from 5 – 8 p.m.
The competition will take place on the main field at Centennial Park, 2200 S. Friendwood Dr.
Boys and girls are all welcome to attend and participate at no cost. No special attire is needed but shoes should have no cleats.
The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick (PPK) program is a national skills competition for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 15 to compete separately against their peers.
Established in 1961, the PPK program is the oldest NFL Youth Football program. Girls and boys in five separate age divisions (6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, and 14-15) compete against each other in punting, passing and place kicking in a fun and engaging forum.
The PPK program is free for both organizers who host a local competition and to every boy or girl who wants to participate.
PPK is one of the world’s largest youth sports participation programs, according to sponsors, and thousands of young people across the nation take part in the competition each year from May through January.
