Handball Drill Demonstration
The blue attacking player plays a one-two with the central player.
They then run forward to meet the pass.
The defender must be aware of when the pass is coming and be poised, ready to pounce, to snatch away and intercept the pass.
According to the rules of the game you are allowed to touch your opponent so in some cases both players should be prepared for contact.
Try to grab the ball with the hand which is closest to the ball.
If you can't grab the ball then try to push it out of your opponent's hand(s) with a short, fast wrist movement.
Drill tags: defence, intercept, intercepting, interception, meet, passing
