Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

Blue 1 is the feeder in this drill and alternates the pass left-right.

Upon receiving the pass blue 2 runs forward and duels with the defender (red 2). Red 1 is libero (spare defender) and moves to cover and help to keep the attacker out in case of emergency.

Repeat on other side. After 4 attacks each players rotate 1 position in a clock-wise direction.

Coaching points

The libero player should only intervene if the attacker gets past their man or succeeds in getting a shot past the defender. The libero is the second 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!
