In this clip, we’re going to talk about the
goalie. A goalie in indoor is going to be a little bit different than outdoor. You definitely
have a different size of goal to tend. Definitely, the indoor goal is a lot smaller. With the
walls and stuff and the shots coming at you, it’s going to be just as hard to defend. Another
difference is the box surrounding the goal is also smaller than the box in outdoor soccer.
You still have room to run about and make your saves, but you definitely don’t have
as much room to take your punts and run around within the box. Some of the differences between
indoor and outdoor, with rules with the goalie, is the fact that a player is allowed to pass
the ball back to the goalie and the goalie is allowed to pick the ball up with his hands.
Normally, in an outdoor game, the keeper would have to kick the ball instead of being able
to pick it up. Also, a goalie is allowed to leave his box, get the ball and dribble it
back into the penalty area and pick the ball up. Normally, a keeper would have to just
kick the ball out. He’s not allowed to dribble it into the penalty box.
