The goalkeeper has all the rights of any other player, plus their special privilege to handle the ball within their own penalty area. This means that goalkeepers can legally take goal kicks, corner kicks, kickoffs, free kicks, penalty kicks, throw-ins, and are required to take a turn during kicks from the penalty mark to determine a winner (a.k.a. shootout) before any team mate may kick a second time.

What are the rules regarding the goalkeeper and the little box in high school soccer?

The "little box" in front of the goal mouth is the goal area. There is no rule governing the goalkeeper and the goal box except that if the keeper is taking a goal kick, the ball must be placed on or within the lines of the goal box to restart play. (Note that the keeper or any of his teammates may take the goal kick - there is no mandate that the keeper take the goal kick.) Following the taking of the goal kick, the ball is considered not to be in play until it crosses out of the associated penalty area, which is the "big box" inside which the defending goalkeeper my use his hands to play the ball according to the Laws of the Game. It is highly unlikely that these rules are modified in high school soccer. It could be fairly said that the sole purpose of the goal area is to define the area from inside which the ball is to be placed in the taking of a goal kick on that restart of play.

What is the definition of a penalty kick?

A penalty kick is a type of free kick in association football, taken from twelve yards(approximately eleven metres) out from goal and with only the goalkeeper of the defending team between the penalty taker and the goal. A penalty kick is performed during normal play. Similar kicks are made in a penalty shootout to determine who progresses after a tied match; though similar in procedure these are not penalty kicks and are governed by different rules. A penalty kick is a direct free kick, which means that he can score a goal without another person having to touch the ball first. You cannot score a goal straight from an indirect free kick

How long can a goal keeper hold onto the ball?

Once the goal keeper has taken possession of the ball with his hands they have 6 seconds to release the ball back into play.

If it continues, then play will be stopped and an indirect free kick will be awarded to the opponents at the location of the infraction.

If a defender takes a goal kick and passes it to his own goalkeeper on the edge of the penalty area is the goalkeeper allowed to pick it up and carry it back into the penalty area?

In short, no. A goal kick is not complete (the ball in not yet in play) until the whole of the ball crosses the whole of the penalty area line and into the field of play. If the goalkeeper touches the ball before it completely leaves the penalty area, the goal kick must be retaken. If the goalkeeper touches the ball with his hands after the ball has left the penalty area and become "in-play", then he is guilty of a handling infraction because the ball is not within the keeper's own penalty area anymore. Either the ball is still in the penalty area or it isn't; it can't be both. This is all without even considering the fact that a goalkeeper cannot handle a ball that has been intentionally kicked to him by a teammate, the so-called "pass-back" rule.

Can goal keeper in football kick ball outside of penalty box?

If The ball is in play goalkeeper hold the ball an opponent standing outside the goal line then the goalkeeper strike to the opponent violently with ball what decision taken by the referee?

"Outside the goal line" would mean the player is off the field of play entirely? This would mean the keeper threw it off the field first and the restart would be a corner kick. It is not a foul, which must be on the field, but it would be misconduct. The goal keeper would be sent off for violent conduct. I believe the question you wrote was worded wrongly and is not what you intended to ask. I think you meant to ask, "What if the player is outside of the penalty area?" The restart would be a direct free kick, not a penalty kick, as the infraction occurred where the ball struck the player. Serious foul play would apply and the goal keeper would still be sent off.
