Goal keeper (1/7)

List item

The furthest back on the court, the goal keeper is responsible for their team’s net and keeping the opposition team’s score down to as low as possible. Only allowed to venture in the final goal third, the usual netball rules of only two steps when handling the ball apply here. When defending the goal from an attack, the goal keeper is allowed to try and block the ball with her arms, however this is only a luxury when they are at least a metre away from the attacker. One final duty of the goal keeper is being on top of rebounded efforts that have failed to go in from the opposition.
