About Punt, Pass, and Kick
The NFL's PP&K program is a national skills competition for boys and girls between the ages of 6-15 to compete separately against their peers. Established in 1961, the PP&K 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 PP&K program is free – both to organizers who host a local competition and to every youngster who wants to participate. With more than four million boys and girls from around the country taking part in the NFL's PP&K competition every year from July through January, it is one of the world's largest youth sports participation programs.
