Handball: center shot with defenders

Excellent site. Very concise and easy to use. I'll definitely be emailing...
David, Handball Coach

DESCRIPTION

B1,B2 and B3 throw just along side their defenders after passing with them first.

Attackers should always be in a forward motion when reveiving the pass.

Variations :

- center shot when running

- center shot hip height

- center shot knee height

 

The rather passive defender only shows the attacker where to throw : defender has hands high --> attacker should decide for a shot at hip of knee height. Defender has hands low --> attacket decedis to throw with a high shoulder height center shot or running shot.



5 throws and then change positions with defenders or left, center, right

COACHING POINTS

center shot
- lefthanders : right foot in front. righthanders : left foot in front
- at the same time get your hand at the height of your shoulder and then backwards
- fore-arm should have a 90 degree angle with upper-arm
- hip goes turns backwards together with the throwing arm
- hand behind ball, fingers slightly spread
- the thrird and last step going foreward must be a big one and explosive
- foot into the direction of the goal
- hand,arm,shoulder,hips must move foreward explosively, with full force
- hand behind the ball, don't squeeze the ball
- when the other foot comes off the floor, the throwing arm should pass the head (ear height)
- stretch out the throwing arm, point towards the direction you want to throw it
- upper body part follows the throwing arm lightly downward

mistakes often made :
- wrong foot in front
- ellbow is lower than the shoulder
- when throwing the elbow is in front of the shoulder
- hand under the ball
- no turning of the hip backwards
- no stretching backward of the shoulder and arm
