if you are a golie, you can stop the ball anyway you want, as long as it isn't passed to you by a team mate, in that case you must play the ball with your feet but if the ball is shot then yes you may use your hand fist arm leg foot or anything on your body to stop the ball, but if it goes past the line between the goal post it is concidered a goal.

Can you hit a soccer ball with your fists while in the goalie box if you are goalie in soccer?

Yes, you can. This is actually a suggested technique because there is less ability of getting hurt. Yes. You Can. I am a trained goalie and I do. It is not suggested because they would rather you catch it. (which is why I like being tall cuz I don't have to punch it that much) But yes coaches might say to do it but as long as you keep it out of the goal you are fine!! :)
