Candown is a team sport where the primary objective is for an offensive player to throw the ball so it hits the can for a mark. The team that scores the most marks wins the game. There are two teams and each team has four players on each side. Both teams take turns playing on offense and defense. The secondary objective is for the defense to take away scoring opportunities from the offense by blocking, stealing or intercepting the ball.
