Note: The only ways a keeper may kick the ball past the half way mark is when a player passes the ball back to the keeper, in this case the keeper can kick as far as they please. Also if the keeper catches the ball and bounces it outside of the keeper area and then kicks it, this would be a valid play. If you are confused on this rule, you may ask a staff member for help.
