Teams work to keep possession of the ball by throwing and catching it. If the ball is dropped to the ground it is handed to the other team. The defending team can block with their hands or intercept with a catch. The team with possession attempts to work the ball up field to a position where they can set a player up for a header or volley into the goal. When players have possession of the ball in their hands they can only pivot (as in basketball) and not run with the ball.
