Hockey, Soccer, Lacrosse, and other team sports that use a goaltender. The Goaltender stay in front of a big net and tries to stop the other team from scoring on his teams goal.
in basketball it is illegal to goal tend.
It can be considered a blocked if it is legal and all goaltending rules apply
Goal tending is when a person stands between the goal posts with a racquet and catches the ball when someone tries to score a goal. If they score then the goal tender holds their racquet straight up in the air. If the miss then the goal tender waves the racquet from side to side.
If goaltending was legal, the sport that it would be legal in would be basketball. Goaltending is when a defensive player misdirects the ball from going through the hoop when the ball is on its way down through the hoop. When the ball is on its way up to the hoop, it is legal to misdirect it. Also when the ball has hit the backboard of the hoop it is not allowed to be touched or misdirected, because that is also considered goal tending, and if goaltending was taken out of the game of basketball then players would be able to touch the ball when it is in the air whenever they would like, and there would most likely not be as high of scoring as their is in basketball today if it was legal.
if the shot is on the way down and a player swats the ball. also imagine the rim as a tube up to the ceiling, if the ball is in that cylinder on the rim and a player grabs the ball it is also goal tending.
