Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

The two blue players stood on the wings of the court both have several balls at their feet and take it in turns to throw the ball into the central player. Once they have past the ball into the middle-man they should drive forwards, ready to receive the return pass, pivot and try to feed the ball into the red player on their side.

Defenders must communicate amongst themselves to decide on which of them goes forwards to close down the oncoming player and which is remaining to cover the man on the edge of the D.

Coaching points

side steps, small, fast steps, remain low to the floor and keep as much contact to the floor as possible.
