Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

Players stand in line and take it in turns to pass to the feeder (blue 1) and then run forwards to move onto the return pass.

Players should look to catch the ball near the 7meter line and take off before the edge of the goal area line on their strong foot.

Once they've received the ball players must throw a jump shot before landing as far as possible  inside the D

Variations:

  • 3 step rythm (right handers : left,right,left and left handers : right,left,right)
  • 2 step or even in 1 step
    jumping off : left handers : right foot, right handers : left foot
  • jump off with your 'wrong' foot (1,2,3 steps)

Coaching points

This drill can be done after players can master a normal far jump shot. Difficulties appear when players have to go outside and throw at the goal. 

Techniques differ a lot when throwing from the left or right wing position.

Progression

  1. Put the cones further to the center when players have problems delivering a correct jump shot far.
  2. Put the cones further to the wings when players are more able to perform 
  3. Cones can be replaced by passive defenders.
