    Default Is there a definition of a kicking tee?

    Question from my old club as the their ref banned them from using two cones.
    Difficult for me to picture but apparently. The kicker laid two standard training cones on the ground one at 45 degrees laying on top of the other.
    The ref said you can't have separate devices and they must be one piece?
    I've never come across this but is was he correct?

    Well Law 8.7c specifically says a kicking tee, which I take to mean one of those plastic things and not a construction of more than one.
    Places the ball directly on the ground or on sand, sawdust, or a kicking tee. The kicker may be assisted by a placer. Nothing else may be used to assist the kicker.
    The second sentence, for me, makes the ref right. Have they ised a kicking tee? Well, kinda, And nothing else? No.

    Ckuxmann asked a similar question in 2009. No satisfactory answers.

    Have the club tried a telescopic tee? Then it’d be legal. (ish) or this one, technically a kicking tee.

    It seems unlikely that you can gain an unfair advantage by stacking two plastic cones.. a commit or garden kicking tee would surely do the job better

    I have once seen a player use 2 of these cones - one bent in half and squeezed into the top hole of the other.

    Personally they can have a couple of upturned buckets ,
    If they’ve worked hard enough to merit a conversion it’d be a pretty poor show to disallow a rather inventive method of creating a tee
    Id be quite intrigued to watch its construction and effectivness

    Is the right answer

    I seem remember the LotG says or used to say tee must be "approved by the Union".

    I would not be fussed at two training cones.

    I recall (when you could kick off and restart with a place kick) that someone used a cut down road cone to facilitate a high trajectory. Can't recall if I saw it live or on telly.

    so if in thye OP the two separate cones were gaffer taped together is that still two separate devices or no one - given you could hold one cone between two fingertips and transport the entire creation?

    frankly it seems a tad OTT to call them out for that when (IMO!) a piece of gaffer tape would change the interprtetaion possibly

    (grass roots, somebody forgot the kicking tee and it didnt becopme obvious until the first tee requirement etc etc etc)

    Frankly a more common theme for me is standing there whilst the kicker screams for the tee to a group of teammates who can't find it coz they left it with the water bottles but now someone has moved it. I have in the recent past resorted to demonstrating how to dig out a kicking mound to an incredulous teenager who assumes I must have completely taken leave of my senses and would definitely cross the street to avoid me in future (all in 90 seconds or less).
