Handball: Block the pass, block the pivot!

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

DESCRIPTION

The blue players are trying to pass the ball through to the pivot (white 1).

At the same time though the red players are working hard to block this pass.

The aim for the red players is to run forward and touch their back court player before running back quickly to defend any passes to the pivot.

After they have been touched blue players pass the ball to a player in the opposite line and they then run to the back of the other line.

Drill continues in this way.

COACHING POINTS

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!
