Best Answer

In amateur and international hockey, the goal crease is a half circle with radius of 6 ft (1.8 m). In the NHL and North American professional leagues, this goal crease is truncated by straight lines extending from the goal line 1 ft (30.5 cm) outside each goal post.

What is the goalie crease and how big is it in lacrosse?

The goalie crease is the circle around the goal that I believe has a diameter of 9 feet for men and 8.5 feet for women. In men's lacrosse a goalie and the defenders of that same team can go in the crease and in women's only the goalie is allowed inside the crease. In women's if a defender steps into the crease then the game is stopped and a girl from the other team is given an 8 meter arch penalty shot, if someone on the offense of the other team steps into the goal the ball is given to the goalie and everyone must be a certain distance away to allow the goalie to clear the ball. Also with women's if an offensive player that is shooting the ball steps into the crease then the goal is not counted and the ball is given to the goalie.


What happens when one of your teammates steps in your own goalie's crease in hockey?

It's never a good idea to step in the goalie's crease, even if it's our own goalie. Goalies need their space to maneuver and make saves. In some places, refs might call penalties for invading the crease, but most refs won't, especially if it's your own goalie.

Lacrosse goalie scores goal in his own crease?

In a game, the goalie can accidentally score on his or her own goal.

The goalie is also allowed to leave the crease and in some rare cases can actually go up and score in the other team's goalie.

Can you go in the goalies crease in soccer?

no you can not go in the crease on the goalie side what kind of dumb question is that Yes, any player of either team CAN step into the crease. You can score and pass from inside the crease as well. However, you cannot walk into the crease while you have the ball (meaning you can pass the ball to someone who's inside the crease, and you can walk into the crease while you do not have the ball). The guy who called this a 'dumb question' must be pretty dumb himself.

Can a goalie be hit in the crease?

No, the crease is the designated area on the ice surface where a goalie should be able to freely move about to stay square with the puck. If there is intentional contact, a penalty is assessed to the forechecking player. If there is incidental contact with the goaltender and a goal is scored on the play, the goal will be disallowed and the face off will take place outside the blue line.
