Handball Drill Demonstration


Players are in a circle.
Pairs are opposite eachother and get the same number.
When the trainer calls out a number, the pair in question sprint to the ball and try to get it before the other one of the pair does.

- just touch the ball and sprint back : Who is back first ?
- run backwards back to your position
- hop one one leg to the ball and back
- make the distance to the ball larger, shorter
