Handball: Defending a 2v2 with libero

Your website has been very helpful. What I have learnt has helped...
Abier, Handball Coach

DESCRIPTION

White 1 starts the move by passing the ball to the white player on either side.

From this point on the drill is live and the two blue players must try and defend the two white players.

Blue 1 is libero and follows the direction of player, positioning themselves so that they are ready to cover and help out in case of emergency.

COACHING POINTS

The libero player should constantly be alert and on their toes, reading the game and following the direction of play - ready to move in in case of the attack breaking through the first line of defence.

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!
