Handball Drill Demonstration


Blue players must work together to try and prevent white players from breaking out of the circle.

To do so they must move quickly to pair up and form a human barrier in front of the white players as they try and burst out.

Coaching points


Blue players may only use their bodies, no arms.

After breaking out run as quickly as you can across a certain line, before the blue players are able to tag you.

Defending in a personal duel - key points:

- 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!
