There are 7 positions in a Netball game on each team. They are;

  • Centre(C)
  • Wing Attack(WA)
  • Wing Defence(WD)
  • Goal Attack(GA)
  • Goal Defence(GD)
  • Goal Shooter(GS)
  • Goal Keeper(GK)

The centre person starts in the small circle in the middle of the court. Centre is allowed every where apart from the 2 shooting semi- circles at either end of the court.

Wing Attack is allowed in the 'attacking' (or their shooting end) 2/3rds of the court, but not in either semi-circle. If you are shooting towards the right, then they are allowed in the centre 3rd and the attacking 3rd to the right, but not in the semi-circles.

Exactly the same applies for Wing Defence, except that they are only allowed in the defending 2/3rds end - and of course not in the semi-circles.

Goal attack is a shooter and is also allowed in the attacking 2/3rds of the court - the difference being that they are allowed in the attacking semi-circle to shoot.

Goal defence is as in the Goal attack, but they defend the defending two-thirds and are allowed into the semi-circle to defend against the opposing shooter.

Goal shooter is allowed into the attacking third only and they are allowed into the attacking semi-circle in order to score the goals. The Goal Keeper is allowed into the defending third only, and they are also allowed into the semi-cirlce to defend against the shooter.

What is the difference between school netball and international netball?

Primary schools often play hi 5 netball which is the same as 7 netball but only 5 are on court. They do this so children learn where each position can go. In 7 netball you only have 1 place but in 5 netball you switch positions every quarter. 7 netball is usually played for an hour although hi 5 netball is only 20 minutes.
