U6/U8 No Pressure Goal Kicks Rules
U6
Law 16
The Goal Kick: the kick should be allowed to be taken from anywhere along the goal line over which the ball traveled. This is so the ball can be put back into play quickly.

The ball should be placed two or three yards into the field of play to make it easier for the child taking the goal kick to get the ball well into the field of play once it is kicked.
The defending players must stand at least at the halfway line until the ball is in play.
If the opposing team has an infraction during the goal kick and the referee deems it necessary, the goal kick may be retaken.
The position of the defending players is so that the attacking team has a chance to advance the ball up field.
