Handball Drill Demonstration
Blue players pass the ball around the grid, always throwing the ball in front of the player so that they have to meet the ball.
This time though there are 6 players stood between the outer edge players and three defenders who are working together to mark two players each.
The central defender must only go up and down, always marking the central blue players. Defender 1 and 2 must work together and cross over so that player one is always marking the player on their right side and player two is always marking on the outside left.
To begin with defenders are fairly passive, as the drill progresses though you can increase their role.
To make the drill more live blue players can choose which direction to pass the ball around the grid and green players are allowed to try and win the ball - if they successfully tackle the ball they swap places with the outside player.
