The Cheraw Recreation and Leisure Services Department will once again sponsor a local NFL Pepsi Punt, Pass, & Kick competition at Arrowhead Park. The contest will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28 on the football field at Arrowhead Park.
The competition is free and it is open to boys and girls ages 6-15. Anyone is interested in participating can sign up at the Cheraw Community Center from from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday or at the competition.
The Pepsi Punt, Pass & Kick competition allows youngsters to showcase their talents in punting, passing and placekicking with scores based on distance and accuracy. The age classification deadline is Dec. 31, 2014.
The top finishers from each of the 10 age groups at the local competition will then advance to the Eastern District Sectionals, which will also be held in Florence in October. Those winners will then have their scores compared to the other winners in North and South Carolina, with a chance to move on to the Carolina Panthers Team Competition in December in Charlotte.
All participants who register must have a parent sign a waiver form and everyone entered must wear gym shoes with a soft sole. No football cleats or turf.
