The basics are that there is three places on the court center court and the two goal thirds the center court is were the center circle is and that were you start the quarter or after a goal

the GS (goal shooter) and GK (goal keeper) are not aloud to pass the goal third line and the the GA (goal attack) and the GD (goal defense) is aloud to go to to the other goal thirds line and then they have to stop.

Center (C) is aloud to go any were but the goal circles.

and last the positions are WA (wing attack) and WD ( wing defence) are aloud to go to 1 goal third the WA end and not passed the other goal line and there not aloud in the goal circle

1) You can hold the ball for up to three seconds

2) You can defend your opponent when you are a least three feet or ninety cm away from the opponent

3) You cannont contact your player which affects the play

4) You can only shoot for goal within the goal circle

5) Only the Goal Shooter and Goal Attack are allowed to shoot for goal

6) You cannot step e. You catch the ball and land on your right foot, that is your grounded foot , you can keep that foot grounded but if you lift your foot up and put it back down you will be penalisied for steeping.
