Centre
Around the Academy:

Centre

Centres are able to move in the whole court, with the exception of the goal circles.

They have to help out in defence and attack.

But they are mainly relied upon to shift the ball away from the defensive area into attack.

Centres also restart the game each time a goal has been scored.

They do this by making a pass from the centre circle.

The centre is the engine of the team so they have to be quick and creative with their passing.

Centres are normally the swiftest player on the court which means they are often among the smallest.
