Metro Parks sponsoring Punt Pass and Kick Competition
Monday August 30, 2010
Metro Parks will host a local qualifier for the national Punt Pass and Kick Competition at Louisville Champions Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 25.
Boys and girls will compete in 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 and 14-15 age divisions for the opportunity to go to a regional qualifier and potentially be sponsored by one of the NFL’s 32 teams in the finals later this year. The winners in each age group are determined by the total distance of their punts, passes and kicks. The finals will take place in early 2011 at an NFL playoff game on a date and site to be determined.
The competition is free, and first through third place ribbons will be awarded for each age division. Participants must show proof of age along with a complete registration form. No cleats are allowed. Forms are available through the Metro Parks Athletic Office, located at the Louisville Tennis Center in Joe Creason Park, or on the day of the event at Champions Park. They can also be found at http://www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroParks/recreation/athletics/.
The competition takes place at the Edith Road section of Champions Park off River Road, east of Waterfront Park. For more information, call 502/456-8173.
In event of inclement weather, call the rainout line at 502/458-0142 after 9 a.m. to confirm competition.
The rainout date will be Sunday, September 26, from 2-4 p.m.
