GD stands for Goal Defence, So that means that you are defending the ball from going in the net. GD always marks GA who is a shooter, this means that Goal Defence will have to try her best to intercept the pass to GA. It is very important that GD intercepts this pass as if she doesn't then GA has the chance to shoot. Although you have to intercept the pass and throw to WD (wing defence) they can then carry on the pass up to your teams shooting third.
The Goal Defence (GD) in netball is on the Goal Attack (GA). The GD position is to defend the ball and try to get as many turnovers as possible and defend the GA when she has a shot a goal.
GP - games played (how many games played) GS - goals scored GA - goals against (goals received basically) GD - goal difference (GS-GA=GD)

The GA can go in the middle third and their teams shooting third. They are allowed in the shooting circle to shoot and can run out for the centre pass. They play against the oppositions GD (goal deffense) and it is one of the most important positions in netball.
When you mean 'D', I am assuming that you mean the semi-circle in your teams goal. If you are the only positions in netball allowed in the semi-circle are Goal Shooter (GA), Goal Attack (GA), Goal Keeper (GK), and Goal Defence (GD). Keep in mind that the GS and GA are only allowed in their goal semi-circle and the GK and GD are only allowed in the opposition goal semi-circle. Hope this helped :) Vicky
Gd, wd, ga, wa
You can do as many passes down the court but there is a very important link called the basic link which goes gk to wd, wd to gd, gd to c,c to wa,wa to ga and maybe ga to gs
first of all the 'pitch' is called a court both teams have a; goalkeep(gk) at each end, a goal defence(gd) on the side, a wing defence(wd) on the wing in the midcourt, a centre(c) which is in the middle of the court,a wing attack(WA) on the other wing in the midcourt, a goal attack(ga) on the side and a goal shoot(gs) in the oppiste semicircle to their goalkeep. gk GS (capitals are the opposite team) gd GA wd WA C c WA WD ga GD gs GK
