Calling all football fans ages 6-15 in Lake County! If you know an athlete who loves to punt, pass and kick the football, there is an incredible opportunity in which to take part that features an NFL-skills competition right in your own backyard. The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition places girls and boys into five separate age divisions (6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 and 14-15) and each competitor gets one chance to use all three skills to move the football down a regulation-size football field. The boys and girls with the highest score based on distance and accuracy could have an opportunity to move on to a sectional final and possibly a team final, which could land a local athlete a spot in a competition at Soldier Field!
There are two FREE competitions coming up in the Lake County area. On August 29, Foss Park District in North Chicago will host a NFL PPK event at 1:00 p.m., and on September 27 the Buffalo Grove Park District will host its event at Buffalo Grove High School at 12:00 p.m.
All participants in a local NFL PPK competition must register online in order to take part in the local competitions at North Chicago (Foss Park District) or at Buffalo Grove (Buffalo Grove High School).
