Goal defence
Goal defence

The goal defence patrols the defensive third, the goal circle and the centre third.

Their main job is to stop the opposition from scoring and to get the ball out of the danger area!

The Goal Defence has to keep a close eye on the other team's goal attack.

They must have good skills of anticipation so they can block passes and get the ball out to their own attacking players.
