yes the goalie can do that but i don't think the goalie would want to kick the puck because it might result in a goal.Also the goalie can save the puck with any part of his body.

What is stroke in hockey?

The most scary thing you will ever do in field hockey. Defiantly if your the goalie.To get a stroke, the goalie has to make the ball unplayable (example: the goalie sits on the ball) or if a player otherthan the goalie blocks the ball from a goal with any body part (example: hands or feet).This penalty is just between one player and the goalie. The goalie stands on the goal line and the player places the ball on the stroke line (the foot long line, about 5 steps in front of the goal line).The ref will say "goalie ready" and then "stroker ready". When both say yes, they will blow their whistle The stroker will then attempt to hit the ball into the goal and the goalie block it.About 80% of the time, the ball will make it into the goal. Lol, not the best thing to hear if your a goalie (like me). But don't worry, strokes are VERY rare.

What are the Field hockey Goalie rules?

First of all, a goalie is somone who wears at least a helmet and a different coloured shirt. A goalie of this type has goalie priveleges when in their own circle, can play using only their stick inside their 23 metre area, and can remove the helmet safely off the field to play anywhere. If they do not put the helmet back on, they still have goalie priveleges. A goalie wearing at least the helmet, shirt, kickers and legguards has goalie priveleges in the circle, can play using only their stick inside their 23 metre area, and cannot influence play outside that (except when taking a stroke). Both must wear the helmet when defending a stroke. When the ball is inside their circle and they are holding their stick, they can use any part of their body to stop or deflect a shot at goal in any direction (including over the backline), and can use only their stick, legs/legguards, and kickers/feet to clear the ball a long distance. They must not lie on the ball.

How do shock absorbers stop an automobile from continually bouncing?

Shock absorbers or dampners are resistive to motion. The spring will allow your suspension to flex up and down. The shock absorber is a hydraulic valve that has 2 motions compression and rebound. The compression motion happens when the shock is being compressed or the tire is moving into the body. The rebound happens as the shock is expanding or the tire is moving away from the body. The shock stabilizes the suspension travel and different types of shocks with different settings can change how quickly the suspension reacts to spring motions.
