Soccer Goalkeepers “distribute” the ball by kicking, punting or throwing it. Once they pick up the soccer ball, they have six seconds to punt it or release it. They can pick it up, run with it and then punt it, throw it or drop it and dribble it or kick it. (However, they cannot touch it with their hands outside the “Soccer Penalty Box” and once they drop it they can’t touch it again with their hands until an opponent has touched it). They can also put it down on the ground and dribble it outside the Penalty Box like a “field player“. (See “Soccer Punting“, “Sidearm Soccer Throw” & “Soccer Goalkeeper“).
