No. A goal keeper is allowed to dribble the ball, and this is not considered the same as "putting it down."

Momentum in soccer?

•Momentum applies to soccer when you kick the soccer ball down the field •It is what allows the soccer players to get speed as they accelerate •

What does speed have to do with soccer?

speed has a lot to do with soccer. if you didn't have speed then you wouldn't be able to chase down the ball or catch other players to get the ball

How does gravity effect soccer?

Gravity causes the soccer ball to come back down when you kick it up. It also keeps the players in contact with the field, and keeps the goals from floating away.

Does the size of a soccer ball affect how high it will bounce?

The size of a soccer ball does not affect how high it bounces because gravity pulls down a ball at the same, no matter what size it is.

What are some soccer skills?

The main soccer skills are dribbling the ball down the field, and shooting the ball. There are some special soccer skills such as the rainbow or the disco that enhance your play in a game.

Where is momentum in soccer?

as you run while dribbling with the ball, you lift up your foot to kick the ball and drive it into the goal...the power/momentum comes from the ground-hips-back down to your foot and transfers energy to the ball.

Where are there forces in soccer?

The forces in soccer occur when someone kicks the ball. When you kick the ball the forces that occur on the ball cause it to change shape, change speed, curve and slow down.

How does momentum apply to soccer?

Momentum applies to soccer when you kick the soccer ball down the field so it speeds up and goes faster.

Is there any friction in soccer?

Friction is in the grass. Friction slows the ball down.

If you kick a soccer ball down the field what two things will cause it to slow down?

friction and gravity

Why do the spikes on soccer cleats go down fast?

They do that because they get worn down by the grass and go down from kicking the soccer ball. Also they have to be a certain length, and after a few uses, the running will wear them down. That is why spikes on a soccer cleats go down fast.h

Why does a goal keeper need flexibility?

The goal keeper needs flexibility to be able to respond quickly to the ball hit in the goal direction (by jumping in air or going down to ground) so that he/she can catch it and avoid the ball hitting the goal.

Can a soccer goal keeper move up and down his goal for a penalty?

The goalkeeper must have both feet on the line for the penalty kick.

In soccer the kickoff must travel?

In soccer, there is no rule as to how far the ball must travel. The person who starts with the ball could kick it backward, to the person next to them, or down the field.

What would happen if you dropped a soccer ball down an incline on snow tile and turf?

The ball would roll downhill.

Why does a soccer ball travel slower grass than turf?

Because there is more friction on grass slowing the ball down.

What are uses of friction?

Friction is when you roll a bowling ball down an bowling alley or when you kick a soccer ball. Hope this helped

How is newton's 3 laws used in soccer?

1st law:Newton's first law of Inertia can be seen in many ways. The most common are:1) The force of gravity pulling down on the player2) The (equal and opposite) force of the ground pushing back on the player3) Gravity pushing down on the soccer ball4) The ground pushing back up on the soccer ballAfter the ball is in the air, inertia is acting upon it too:1) Ball being pulled back down toward Earth from gravity2) Ball slowing down in the air from the Friction, or air resistance2nd law:As a player runs and dribble the ball he pushes and run with varying momentum (velocity) therefore, in a specific time frame. He experiences a rate of change of momentum. thus give rise to a resultant force. Evident if he runs and runs straight.3rd law:Newton's thrid law of motion is played out in soccer when the ball has been kicked. We do not really notice this, but the ball is actually pushing back on the foot after it has been kicked, but as we are much bigger than the soccer ball it will go flying. The force of the ball against our foot is equal and oppositeto the force of the player.

Where might be possible to kick a soccer ball and have it never slow down?

You can kick a soccer ball (football) in outspace and it will never slow down.

Is dribbling a soccer ball the same thing as kicking?

I'm a soccer coach at UNC and these are two completely different things. Anyone can kick a ball down the field, but not anyone can dribble it down the field. These two take different talents to do.
