That depends the precise football code, on how far they want to kick it, how strongly they kick it, how powerful their leg muscles are, and their overall flexibility and leg length, because the longer the distance over which a force may act upon an object, the faster it will depart from the impulse applied to it.

So there are actually quite many factors involved.

Kicks in Australian football, using place kicks and the oval-shaped ball, have been known to travel more than 100 yards through the air - though in today's style of kicking and game, this virtually never happens.
