Handball: Out and Defend - 1v1 defence

Excellent site. Very concise and easy to use. I'll definitely be emailing...
David, Handball Coach

DESCRIPTION

Player 1 (the feeder) stands in the middle of the court and passes the ball to player 3.

Player 3 then tries to break through the defence and defender 1 tries to prevent the shot on goal.

Straight away after the attack has finished (with an interception or a shot on goal) the feeder passes to player 2 who also now tries to break through.

Repeat this four time (8 attacking moves in total) and then rotate positions and give the defending players the chance to catch their breath.

COACHING POINTS

This is a tiring defensive drill that will test your defender's ability to run out and block the attacker in a 1v1 duel.

Key Points - defending in a personal duel:

- Arms slightly bent and slightly in front of you
- Prevent attackers from coming between your arms and move sidewards along with your attacker and stay between goal and attacker
- Pressure the attacker's movements
- Never jump, keep close contact with the floor and lots of small, quick steps to shadow the attacker!
