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!! :)
