The goal circle, or "crease" allows attackers to have an advantage to see the field or make a "roll." A player behind the goal can make feeds to offensive cutters, and if the opportunity is there, to run around the perimeter of the circle and score a goal. It is a good way to shake defenders and to use your teammates to set picks and make cuts so you can score a goal.

It's probably one of my favorite parts about attacking in the sport.
