The difference between basketball and netball is that in basketball you can take more than 2 steps and dribble up the court, but in netball the most amount of steps you can take is 2 and you are put in certain positions. Another difference is that netball is played in thirds and basketball in halves.
In a regular game you must have 5 players on a team! the positions are 1 is point guard, 2 is a strong forward, 3 is another strong forward and may throw in the basketball. 4 is a center and 5 is a strong post player! By rule, there is nothing that any one of these positions can do that the others cannot. But they all have traditional "roles" which they usually adhere to. Welcome!
