What can a goalie do during a soccer game?

I'm one of the best people to help answer that, since I've been a goalie for years. Goalies, as you probably know already, defend the goal. They are the only players that are allowed to block the ball with their hands. They must stay inside their penalty box. Here's a cool thing we can do: Goalies CAN step outside their box, but cannot touch the ball with their hands. They may kick the ball into the penalty box and then pick it up and throw/kick it back down the field. Hope this helps!
