Handball Drill Demonstration


Hoops scattered in the area.
Players dribble from one hoop to another.
When the trainer whistles everybody should dribble to one of the hoops.
But.... there is one hoop less than the number of children. So one player cannot go into a hoop. He must sit down next to the trainer.
The trainer takes out a hoop every time. Who will be the last player left on the court ?

variations :
- dribble with left hand
- dribble with right hand
- dribble with both hands in turn every time
