It counts on a serve.

It may count, but it has a name. Anyone know the name of it though? I can't find it anywhere. I only know there is a name because one of my gym final exam questions is what is the name of it. So ya.......

If it goes directly over the post, it is not a score. When it goes over the post, also called the upright, it is considered to be wide and so it is not a score. If it goes over the crossbar then it is a point. If it goes into the goal, then it is a goal worth 3 points

The goal is H-shaped with a net below the crossbar, similar to a soccer goal and rugby goalposts being stuck together. Getting the ball over the bar gives one point and getting the ball into the net gives 3 points. Scoring is mainly done by hitting the ball with the Hurling stick. The ball can be kicked but not be thrown for a score.

If the ball goes out after you serve it in Volley Ball them the other team gets the point if they didn't touch it when you contacted the ball and it went over the net.

What are some games that come from hurling?

Camogie, which is the women's version of Hurling, is the main one. The rules are very similar. You have other unofficial games, like long puck competitions, to see who can hit the ball furthest, or over a set course with the fewest pucks. This is known as the Poc Fada, and there is an annual competition for it in August each year, in the Cooley mountains in Co. Louth. You have games where players try to hit the crossbar with the sliothar (name of the ball Hurling is played with).
