Handball: Stretching the defence with passing.

Excellent site. Very concise and easy to use. I'll definitely be emailing...
David, Handball Coach

DESCRIPTION

The blue players must pass the ball between themselves with the intention of stretching the defenders as much as possible.

When the center left two attacking players have the ball (blue 4 and 3) the first defender (red 1) covers the space.When the center right two players have the ball (blue 3 and 5) it is the second defender's (red 2) responsibility to cover the space.

The defender who is not immediately defending should shuffle over to make sure that the defence is not leaving large gaps.

The outlets are the left wing and right wings where the defenders can not go.

COACHING POINTS

Key points:

  • Running forward to meet the attackers.
  • Knees bent ready to change direction.
  • When backtracking into defence take small steps, without turning your back on the play.
