Handball Drill Demonstration
Three defending players, lined up outside your shooting circle, one feeder stood in the middle (could be the coach) and then two equal lines of attackers on both sides of the court.
The attacking players take it in turns to attack. The first players passes the ball to blue 2 and then runs forward, looking for the return pass.
The blue player then takes on their man in a 1v1 where the libero defender (red 2) moves over to cover and only helps if the blue player gets past the first defender.
In this drill, with the extra man, the defenders should be able to stop the shot on goal 90% of the time.
When defending be sure to:
- Have your arms in front of you, slightly bent and ready to intercept the ball
- Stay between the goal and the attacker, following the attacker's movement
- Use small short steps (never jump)
After a few minutes be sure to swap the player's roles around.
