There are 5 different positions, guardian which is a player that stands at the line attempting to protect his teammates if a ball hits a guardian the points do not count. Another position is a collecter, a collecter picks up balls and gives them to an attacker any position can do this but a collecter can only do this, an attacker is a player who hits the other team or shoots it into the goal. The last position is the goalie the goalie protects the hoop and shoots it into the other hoop but can't hit any other player.
