According to the FIFA Laws of the Game, all opposing players must be 10 yards away from the ball on any placed kick. The distance is often shortened for younger age groups. See your local league modifications to the Laws of the Game for a specific answer.

In the case of a goal kick, they should be outside of the penalty area.
