Handball Drill Demonstration


This drill practises the pivot rolling off the defender for a quick shot on goal.

The coach/feeder (blue 2) passes to blue 1 who runs to meet the pass and then pushes/rolls off the defender (white 1) to find space for the shot on goal.

Repeat for a series of 6 shots.

Coaching points


Don't make life easy for the defender! Be strong, hold your ground and most importantly, don't stop moving.


Start by being passive and allowing the attacking players to roll off them

Next stage: half active (attacker is still successful).

Lastly, defender fully active.
