The game is played on an oval that is about twice as long as an American football field and as wide as an American football field is long. There are 18 players on each side. The objective is to kick the ball between the two middle polls at each end. A goal is worth scored if the ball is kicked through the middle posts and is worth 6 point. If the goal is kicked between the middle post and the smaller side post or if the ball goes between the middle posts without being kicked, then 1 point is scored.
There is no offside, so players can move any where on the field and can pass the ball in any direction. However, you are not allowed to throw the ball. To pass, a player may kick (punt) the ball or "hand pass" the ball. A hand pass is a pass in which the ball is placed on the palm of one hand and punched off with a closed fist of the other hand.
