Handball: Shadow defence

This is the best handball site I have visited.
Joelma

DESCRIPTION

Blue players 1, 2 and 3 stand in a line with a supply of ball to try and feed to blue player 4.

The defending player (Red 1) must stay in front of the receiving player and mirror their movement across the court, preventing as many balls as possible from reaching blue player 4.

The receiving player must change pace and direction in order to lose their marker but they are not allowed to step in front of the defender.

COACHING POINTS

Encourage communication amongst the on the ball players.

Defender should have slightly bent knees so as to be ready to quickly change direction and follow the attacker.

Look for sharp and fast bursts of speed from Blue 4 and Red 1.
