The distance between the goal posts is officially 7 yards; so that is 21 feet.

In metric that is 6.4 metres.

The width of the goal posts themselves is not official, so this might vary; but the rule states that at lest the bottom 2 metres of each post must be padded as protection. In some grounds, the base of the posts can be even 8 or 9 inches thick due to the padding.

### What does an AFL goal kicker do?

well, anyone in a team of players in AFL can kick a goal. as long as they have the ball and can kick it through the large goal posts, then they can kick a goal. but, position-wise, generally, the goal kickers are the players that play the positions 'full-forward' and 'half-forward' and they simply need to get the ball and somehow kick it through the goals, whether it be from a mark and a set shot or a running kick through. sometimes midfielders will run up and kick goals and occaisionally even a defender will run through the middle, receive the ball and have a go. hope that helps!

### How do you score in AFL?

there are three ways to score one is by a touchdown (6 points) another is by a field goal (3 points) (point after touchdown[PAT]=1 point) and another way to score is by safety (2 points) THERE YOU GO :] __________________________________________________________ actually that's not AFL. there are no touchdowns or field goals. in AFL there are two ways to score. If the ball is kicked through the two large posts, it is a goal, worth six points. If a ball is kicked through a large post and a small post, it is a behind, worth only one point. or, if the ball is touched, hanballed, or put through the large posts by the opposing team it is a behind instead of a goal.
