Handball Drill Demonstration


Dribbling the ball, players take it in turns to run forward to the defender.

When they get close (around 2-1 meters away) they should jump off, in front of the defender, and throw at the goal.

Defender must try and block the shot.

Coaching points

  •     final step is explosive and large
  •     in the air the hip should go backward together with the throwing arm
  •     pull up other leg until upper leg is horizontal
  •     land on the same leg as you jumped off




  1. To begin with the defender should be fairly passive - allowing attackers to have their shot on goal with only minimal pressure.
  2. However, as the drill progresses the defender can up the pressure.
  3. Attackers can also attempt to use a feint (dummy) to fool the defender and get a clear shot on goal.
