Australian Football is all-encompassing involving elements of many sports, including soccer, football, basketball and volleyball. Similar to soccer, players are posted at a number of positions – including forwards, wings and backs – and are allowed to kick the ball, also called the “footy,” as well as handle it with their hands. Although players have designated positions, they are free to move anywhere on the field at any point in time.
