Punt, Pass & Kick Competition Saturday at Grover Cleveland

Kids ages 6-15 are invited to this FREE friendly competition hosted by the YMCA of Greater Erie

September 9, 2021

The popular, free football skills competition IS BACK! That's right - Punt, Pass & Kick is again sweeping the nation! Thanks to Punt, Pass & Kick USA, Inc. boys and girls ages 6 to 15 can show off their skills and have fun while competing for a chance to advance to the next round - ALL FOR FREE!

Not familiar with the event? No worries - it's as simple as the title! Each participant gets two attempts to throw the football, punt the football and kick the football off of a tee. Using a tape measure that is laid out on the ground, and string to calculate accuracy (distance from the tape measure), the child's longest distance, out of the two attempts, will be put towards their total score. The top performers will advance to the next round!

Divisions are split by gender... 6/7 Boys, 6/7 Girls, 8/9 Boys, 8/9 Girls, 10/11 Boys, 10/11 Girls, 12/13 Boys, 12/13 Girls, 14/15 Boys & 14/15 Girls. Ages are as of December 31, 2021, so be sure your child is in the correct division.

While there is no charge for this FREE event, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED! Pre-registration is STRONGLY encouraged because low pre-registration numbers could lead to the event being canceled.

The YMCA is offering TWO (2) different options for local events (children may only participate in ONE local event per year) to give more opportunities for the children to be able to participate in one or the other.
