Please identify which sport you are referring to.

• soccer penalty kick - 12 yards from the goal.
• Basketball freethrow line - 15 feet from the board.
• hockey - the puck is placed at center ice. The attacking player approaches the puck- When the offensive player contacts the puck, it must continue toward the goal, and play continues unopposed until the shot is made. Only the goalie may face the offensive player, and may not leave the crease until the shooter contacts the puck.
