Metro Parks Hosts Punt Pass and Kick Competition
Monday August 29, 2011
Metro Parks will host a local qualifier for the national Punt Pass and Kick Competition at Louisville Champions Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 24.
“The Punt Pass and Kick Competition has been a popular event across the country for more than four decades,” said Metro Parks Director Mike Heitz, “Metro Parks is excited to host the qualifier again this year.”
Boys and girls will compete in 6-7, 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 2012 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 Athletics Office, located at the Louisville Tennis Center in Joe Creason Park, or on the day of the event at Champions Park.
