It's when a football team kicks to the other team
The football travels a lot farther than the balloon does.
NRL is tackle football, there are kicks in play (start of field) and there are converisons. Touch football requires you to touch a player, no kicks during plays and no converisons.
Nothing you hike it back yo the kicker and he kicks it like a golly kicks when he gets the ball.
one team kicks the football to the other team and the fun begins:-)
