The National Football League’s PUNT, PASS & 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.
The Minnesota Jaycees continue their decades long tradition of coordinating local and sectional NFL Punt Pass & Kick competitions across the state. These community events are a great way to get kids and families out and active and provide Jaycees and volunteers around the state with a fun project to coordinate every year.
Girls and boys in five separate age divisions compete against each other in punting, passing and place kicking in a fun and engaging forum. The PPK program is free – both to organizers who host a local competition and to every youngster who wants to participate!
With more than three million boys and girls from around the country taking part in PPK competitions every year from July through January, it is one of the world’s largest youth sports participation programs.
