Basically all footballers can kick the ball about half the length of the pitch. But some can kick it further, some goalkeepers can kick it 3/4 the length and even the length of the pitch.

AnswerYes there is the five yard difference, but the NFL ball also weighs more.AnswerThe guy who left this answer before I completely reconstructed it was an idiot. There is a 5 yard difference between pro and college, and the ball weighs more. But, most college kickers kick it to the middle of the endzone. Most pro kickers kick it to the goal line consistently.

How far should a 13 year old boy kick a football soccer?

There is no real limits that someone should be looking to hit a football, it depends, if you are a goalkeeper you would need to kick it probably to the halfway line, but if you are a striker if you could kick it 30 yards that would be far enough. Do not think you have to hit certain targets because whatever you can do is enough.

Does the size of a football affect its kicking distance?

yes it does when you change the size of the football you change the way the air moves around it. The smaller the football the less air resistence but less stability, meaning it will go far but not where you want it. The larger the football the more air resistance and more stability, meaning it won't go as far as the small football but it will be more accurate. Really it all comes down to how hard you kick it, and how you kick it.
