GS/Goal Shooter= To score goals and to work in and around the circle with the GA. Court area= the third they are shooting in and in the goal semi-circle.

GA/Goal Attack= To feed and work with GS and to score goals. Court Area= the centre third and the third they are shooting in & the goal semi-circle.

WA/Wing Attack= To feed the circle players giving them shooting opportunities. Court Area= The third they are shooting in and centre third and NOT IN THE GOAL SEMI-CIRCLE!

C/Centre= To take the Centre Pass and to link the defence and the attack. Court Area= the whole court except the goal semi-circle at both ends.

WD/Wing Defence= To look for interceptions and to prevent the WA from feeding the circle. Court Area= The centre third and the third where the other team is shooting and NOT IN THE GOAL SEMI-CIRCLE!

GD/Goal Defence= To win the ball and reduce the effectiveness of the GA. Court Area= The third where the other team is shooting and in the semi-circle and in the centre third.

GK/Goal Keeper= To work with the GD and to prevent the GS from scoring goals. Court Area= only in the third the other team is shooting at and in the semi-circle.

Goal Shooter (GS)

Goal Keeper (GK)

Goal Attack x 2 (GA)

Goal Defense x 2 (GD)

Centre (C)

All players are on court at the same time. You wear a bib with the letter assigned to your position so it is easy to tell if you are offside.

Centre can go anywhere except the shooting circle at either end.

Only GS and GA can go in your own shooting area. But can not cross the 2/3 line.

Only GK and GD can go in the other team's shooting circle but have to stop at 2/3s line gonig towards their own goal area.
