Handball Drill Demonstration


Attacker starts dribbling forward to the other side to score a goal.

Defender turns around at point A and sprints forward to point B before turning around again to face the attacker at point C and runs backwards with cross-over technique all the way line D.

Coaching points

After every action, the defender and attacker change roles.

Defender tries to force the attacker into the most unfavourable corner if possible to make scoring as hard as possible. Really trying to get the ball is hard and dangerous and is mostly punished with penalty shot and/or two minutes penalty time. So it is important not to touch attackers.

If an attacker dribbles with his right hand then try to force him into the left corner as he has to get past the defender almost offering the ball.

Defenders have to offer them this side by standing diagonally with the left foot in front.
