Youth Football

Punt, Pass & Kick

The Detroit Lions would like to thank Stu Alderman and the staff from the Michigan Recreation & Park Association for their strong involvement, hard work and dedication to the Michigan Punt, Pass & Kick Program!

The NFL 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.

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 – 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.

For more information on how to get involved in a PPK program in your community, please visit www.NFLPPK.com.
