Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

Center shot hip height:

A right hander should take one right footed step forward when they are about an arm's length away from their opponent.

They should raise their arm to shoulder height, backwards, as if to make a normal center shot.

Their right hip should be turning backward with arm and shoulder together.

The player should then take a large step with their left foot, almost so that it is between the opponent's legs.

The final move - players' arms move from back to front explosively, with their hand behind the ball (hand should be sideways, like you want to sweep the floor with the side of your hand).

Finally, let go of the ball and point in the direction you want to throw it.

Coaching points

There is another technique in which the player puts his 'wrong' foot (right foot for a right-handed player) next to the defender and shoots like this at low height.
