The Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club will once again be sponsoring the annual Punt, Pass and Kick competition on Friday September 6th at 4 p.m. in Father Martin Park.

The competition is opened to boys and girls (competing separately) ages 6-15 in age groups 6 & 7, 8 & 9, 10 & 11, 12 & 13 and 14 & 15 as of December 31, 2013.

The NFL PP&K Program is a national skills competition established in 1961 sponsored by the NFL. Competitors are judged by distance and accuracy in punting, passing and kicking. Over three million boys and girls participate. The Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club has been hosting the local competition since the mid 60’s.

Winners of the local competition advance to the Sectional Championships in Central New York later in the fall with Sectional winners advancing to the team championships at a Buffalo Bills game.

The OBGC will be holding practice sessions leading up to the competition. Competitors are reminded no cleats are allowed to be used.

Registration takes place before the event. For further information call 393-1241.
