No...not really. You can line up for a FG on 3rd down. If you get a bad snap, you can fall on the ball and then line up again on 4th down. But once a "kick" is attempted, you have given possesion of the ball to the other team. ----

The only way that could happen is if the kick was missed and there was a penalty that the kicking team accepted that would allow them to keep possession of the ball but would not give them a first down. *If the ball was kicked for goal, then charged down and recovered by the kicking team without having passed the line of scrimmage, the players might be able to reset and kick again. This has an extremely low probability of happening as the recovering player is likely to be downed or score a touchdown, and will never even consider attempting another kick.

The distance is 10ft in both endlines. So there are 20 ft I don't get that answer.The distance from goal line to goal line is 100 yards minus the width of one white stripe. For clarification, starting at the south goal line it is ten yards from the north side of the goal line to the north side of the ten yard stripe. Continue this down the field and you are at the north side of the other ten yard stripe. Ten more yards would be the north side of the goal line. A touchdown occurs at the south side of the stripe. One stripe less than 100 yards.

What is the scoring system for field hockey?

The scoring system in field hockey is the same as in ice hockey and association football. The score counts how many goals each team has scored, and the team with the most goals at full time wins. To score a goal, the ball has to cross the goal line into the goal after last being touched by an attacking player in the shooting circle (from 1 January 2013, "own goals" will be introduced, so a goal is scored regardless of which team touched the ball last in the circle). Goals don't count if the ball has not been touched by a player in the shooting circle. Goals also do not count if during a penalty corner, the first attempt at goal is a hit (i.e. with a back swing) and as a result the ball crosses the goal line at a height of more than 46cm (18in) above the ground (the same height as the backboards on the goal).

What does fourth down and 12 mean in football?

It means that the team is on it's last attempt at a touch down and they have 12 yards to the end zone. They have the option to go for the touch down or punt. In American football, the offensive team has 4 plays, called downs, to advance the ball 10 yards. If the offense cannot gain 10 yards on four plays possession of the ball turns over to the other team. If the offense can advance the ball 10 yards in four plays (this is called a 'first down' and you would hear the announcer say '1st down and 10') they get another four plays to advance the ball another 10 yards. The term '4th down and 12' means that the offense has one more attempt to make a first down and they need to advance the ball 12 yards to do so. In a situation like this there are three scenarios: 1) The offensive team will punt the ball to the other team because they are close to their own end zone and should they not gain 12 yards on 4th down the other team would get possession of the ball and have a very good chance to score points. 2) The offensive team will attempt a field goal if they are within the other team's territory on the field. 3) The offensive team will attempt to gain 12 yards on a 4th down if it is late in the game and they are behind in the score. It means that if offense can't make the 12 yards in the next down, the ball will be turned over to the other team. In general, it means "punt".

Basics of football?

The basics of football is to score more points than your opponent. The way to do this is by either running the football into the end zone which gives you six points, or by throwing the football to another teammate and if he/she catches it, than that is a touchdown which also gives you six points. After the touchdown, the team that scored has a chance to either attempt a field goal (kicking the football through the field goal) which is 1 point or go for 2 points by running a normal offensive play, you may not kick the ball in order to get the 2 point conversion. Both offense and defense must play 11 players on the field at once.
