A kicking tee is a rubber or plastic platform, often with prongs and/or a brim around an inner depression.
In American football and its variants, a tee may be used on kickoffs to raise the ball slightly above the playing surface (up to one inch, by NFL and NCAA rules). The CFL and some high school leagues also allow the use of tees on field goal and extra point kicks, where another player (the holder) places one end of the ball on the tee (usually just a rubber block) and holds the opposite end.
Tees may also be used for place kicks in rugby league football and rugby union football.

Famous quotes containing the word kicking:
“I hate the actor and audience business. An author should be in among the crowd, kicking their shins or cheering them on to some mischief or merriment.”
