Kick-Off Shot

A "kick-off shot" can never score a goal. A "kick-off shot" is a shot taken after a kick-off before the entire ball out of the center circle, including the boundary line. The ball must touch a player from the kick-off team after leaving the center circle before a goal can be scored by the team taking the kick-off. If a kick-off shot enters the goal (either directly or via contact with an opposing robot), no goal will be scored and a kick-off will be awarded to the defending team.
