Kicking penalties explained
When a player commits offside, obstruction, or any other non-violent penalty, the ball is to be awarded to the opposing team, where they will have a "kicking" option. By this, the team is allowed to do one of three things:
Continue moving the ball downfield from the spot of the infraction, by first "tapping" the ball off the boot of one of the attacking players.
Kicking the ball into touch, where they will receive a throw-in from the spot where the ball went out of play.
Kicking for points.
