Handball Drill Demonstration
Player / coach stands in line with the substitution line and feeds the ball to the attacking players (white 3 and white 1).
On receiving the pass players must try to wrong foot the wing defender as they engage in a defensive duel.
After the move is over (after an interception or a shot on goal) the attacker join the back of their own line and the defenders sprint to switch sides of the court and join the back of the line on the other side of the court.
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!
