Goal attack
Goal attack

The goal attack's primary role is scoring and setting up goals.

They can play in the centre third, the attacking third and the goal circle but NOT the defensive third.

The GA's main duty is to feed the goal shooter so they can fire the ball into the net close to the post.

But if the defenders are marking the GS then the GA will often have a shot from nearer the edge of the goal circle.

The GA must have both strong passing and shooting skills.
