Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

Setup as shown, with the player on the far right passing to the player in the middle. The player then crosses with the player on the left who takes a shot at goal.

After catching the ball B2 feints as if to go to the right, but changes to the left to cross with B3. B3 first feinst to start to te left, but quickly sprints to the left to cross with B2, catch the ball and throw at the goal.

Players swap positions after throwing.

Coaching points

Make players jump off at 8-9 metres, not too any closer and not any further away.

Throw just next to hands of defenders (in most situations it is simply not possible to throw over the hands of defenders - players cannot jump that high! - (compare smashes in volleyball : most of them are places just next to the blocking hands of defenders)

Progression

  1. Defender acts as if to block the shot by holding his arms high to give space for the shot next to the defender's arms..
  2. Defender jumps up to block the shot.
  3. Defender is really active to prevent a goal shot.
