The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick (PPK) program is a national skills competition for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 15 to compete separately against their peers. Girls and boys in five separate age divisions (6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, and 14-15) compete in distance and accuracy punting, passing and kicking. Established in 1961, the PPK program is the oldest NFL Youth Football program. With more than three million boys and girls from around the country taking part in the PPK competition every year from July through January, it is one of the world's largest youth sports participation programs.
