there are 7 positions C, WA, WD, GA. GD, GS and GK. There are each of these players from both teams and their partners are from both team C-C, WA-WD, WD,-WA, GS- GK, GK-GS, GA-GD, GD, GA

If you are short you are better off playing Centre, Wing Attack and Wing Defence. If you are quite tall than you should probably start playing, Goal Shooter, Goal Keeper, Goal Attack and Goal Defence. There are 7 positions on each team, your opponent team has 7 to. Goal Keeper plays on Goal Shooter, Centre plays on Centre, Goal Defence plays on Goal Attack and Wing Defence plays on Wing Attack and vice versa. Each player gets a certain amount of court. Goal Shooter gets the attacking third and the attacking goal circle, Goal Attack gets the centre third, the atacking third and the attacking goal circle, Wing Attack gets the centre third and the attacking third, Centre gets the centre third, the attacking third and the defending third, but not the two circles, Wing Defence gets the centre third and the defending third, Goal Defence gets the centre third, the defending third and the defending circle, Goal Keeper gets the defending third and the defending circle.

GS stands for GOAL SHOOTER, GA stands for GOAL ATTACK,

WA stands for WING ATTACK, C stands for CENTRE,

WD stands for WING DEFENCE, GD stands for GOAL DEFENCE,

GK stands for GOAL KEEPER.
