The goalie does have a right to "check" another player, but it can not be compared to what it is like in hockey. You must keep your arms down and you may not kick them, but as to the fact about being inside the box, you will lose your rights of aggression once you step outside the 18 yard line (box) and the ref can call the golie for cheaking a player if its not legel

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.

What were the Modern day rules of soccer?

Soccer consists of many complicated rules. One of the rules is that a soccer game lasts 90 minutes with a fifteen minute break after half of the game. Another one of the rules is that you get five players on the bench. You get to take three of your players out of the field and put in three players from the bench. These are called substitutions. You can make one substitution at a time or all three. Your team can have only 11 people on the field at a time. Your team also has to have a captain. Usually the captain is chosen based on experience. Also, another one of the rules is an offside. An offside is when someone from the opposing team gets the ball behind the last defender. There are also cards. If the referee shows you a yellow card it is a warning. When you get two yellow cards in one game you get a red card. A red card means that you have to leave the game and not get to play the next one. The referee can also show you a red card without showing you two yellow cards. Different players have different ways of celebrating a goal. A goal is when the ball goes into the net past the goalie. If you score a goal it helps your teams win the game. There are four different positions in soccer, goalie, defender, midfielder and, forward. The goalie has to keep the ball from going in the net. Goalies are the only players that can use their hands. Defenders help support the goalie and clear the ball out into the midfield. Midfielders run up and down the field supporting both defenders and scoring like forwards. Forwards, also have a tough job. They have to score goals. Soccer also has fouls. Fouls are when you push, shove, or slide tackle someone from the opposing team. If the foul is bad enough you can get a card. This is how injuries happen. If you make a foul outside of the 18 yard box the opposing team gets a free kick. A free kick is a chance for the opposing team to score by kicking the ball at the net with a wall of players blocking the way of the ball. If you make a foul inside the 18 yard box it is called a penalty kick. A penalty kick is where someone kicks the ball one-on-one against the goalie.

What are the different positions in soccer?

Goalie is the only determined position in soccer. He us the only player who can use his hands and only inside the goalie box of his side if the field. All ten of the other players are considered outfield players. They are not limited in their roles and may interchange positions freely. Typically, players will specialize in a certain role. Defenders specialize in keeping the opposition from scoring. Attacking players will attempt to score. Midfield players play between the two, usually defending and attacking. There are other more specific names for defenders, midfielders and forewords, such as strikers and sweepers, but those are the main ones.

If a player does not close his hand on the puck but does use his hand to push the puck under the goalie in the crease in ice hockey is it a penalty shot or just delay of game?

Players in their defensive zone can hand pass the puck to anyone in the defensive zone; therefore, they can "shovel" the puck under their goalie in the crease to stop play. Play would be stopped provided the goalie was in check by an attacking player; otherwise, the goalie would be given a minor penalty if he didn't get rid of the puck within 3 secs. This penalty rule is at the discretion of the referee. With regards to penalties and penalty shots associated to players playing the puck with their hands: If any player other than the goalie closes his hand on the puck or picks the puck off the ice with his hand "OUTSIDE" of the goal crease, a minor penalty will be assessed most likely a delay of game. If any player other than the goalie closes his hand on the puck or picks the puck off the ice with his hand "INSIDE" the crease, a penalty or penalty shot will be awarded to the non-offending team. (at the discretion of the referee)

Can a goalie play the ball with their hands if the ball is inside the penalty box but their feet are outside the penalty box?

Yes, the goalie is allowed to handle the ball as long as the ball remains in the marked area. I.E. If the goalie slides to get a ball, and slides out of the penalty box, but the ball remains inside, it is still as if he/she had just picked it up standing inside the box. Hope it helps!

Do hockey goalie suspenders go over or under the chest pads?

The answer is both and neither. I find goalies, like most other players these days, forgo suspenders at all in favor of simply using the belt supplied on the pants. This is a mistake as suspenders will keep goalie pants properly positioned far better then a belt. Whereas most goalies are now tucking their chest pad inside their pants I would say a larger percent who do use suspenders wear them over the chest pad. Again this is an individual decision
