Best Answer

A Punter (After a touchdown or fieldgoal is made) in the NFL should at least kick 65 yards.
A Field Goal Kicker should be able to kick at least 55-60 yards to be good.
A Kicker, (When a team kicks the ball away) should kick approximately 35 or more yards.

Field Goal's need accuracy
Punter's and Kicker's don't

How far do you have to kick field goals or kickoffs to be a kicker in NCAA D1?

A field goal is normally 17 yards longer than the distance of the line of scrimmage to the goal line, as that number includes the end zone and the seven yards the holder stands behind. The average field goal range varies for each team. As far as how far you have to kick field goals or kickoffs to be a kicker in NCAA D1, there doesn't appear to be an exact number. Obviously, the further you can kick, the better the chances. Accuracy is also a must.

Does the angle of a football affect how far you can kick it?

Yes. The physics involved are quite complex however, and change depending upon the wind, the surface the ball is being kicked off of, and the individual kicker making the kick. Generally speaking the more surface area a kicker can tough with his foot during the actual kick, the more accurate it will be, however for distance the kicker needs to place his impact on the ball at the lower-back side of the football, so that it has a "driving force" as the ball moves down the field. The more towards the center (in terms of height) that the ball is kicked, the more accurate it will be. The lower (in terms of height) the more distance it should travel. The angle at which the ball is set up or held can have enormous impact on the kicker's ability to kick the ball correctly for that desired play.

Why does a football fly further when an indoor stadium is FULL vs when it isn't?

I bet it's the pure adrenaline of the kicker. "the more people, the more i want me to make this kick, and if they are of the opposing team, i just want to show them how far i can kick the ball and their team OUT."

How do you kick a soccer ball far?

Always try to kick the ball with the side of your foot, this also gives you more control over the ball and where you want it to go. Kicking the ball far into the field is just a technique you have to practice, you won't be able to kick it far the first time, you just have to keep practicing. Or try to kick it with the top of your foot, the laces of your cleats or tennis shoes, whatever your wearing, hope this helps and good luck with soccer.

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.
