HANDBALL for short pass and to keep the game moving

KICK for a longer pass and to score goals, kicks range from 15m–60m (16-70 yards)

GOALS can only be scored via a kick

MARKING: Catching a ball that has been kicked and it’s called a mark.

CAN YOU JUMP ON ANOTHER PLAYERS SHOULDERS? YES!

THROWING: Don’t throw the ball – ever!

RUNNING with the ball is allowed, but the player must bounce the ball every 15 meters, but if you get tackled, the opponent will receive a free kick

Moving the ball in the direction of your goal is the key. If it gets too scrappy or too congested, the umpire (or referee) will take the ball and throw it up to keep the game flowing. It’s much like a jump ball in basketball.

If the ball goes out of the boundary lines an umpire will toss it back into play over their head.
