Handball Drill Demonstration

Description

Blue 2 starts with the ball and dribbles with it from right to left. As they set off on their run blue player 1 times their run so that they cross just behind blue 2.

As the players' paths cross, and the defender's view is obscured, blue 2 offloads the ball and player 1 then runs to the outside of the goal area line and shoots.

Coaching points

Turn shoulder towards the player as you pass to protect the ball.

As the drill progresses you can allow the defenders to become more active - making it harder for the attackers to find space for their shots.

Variation:

Players decide between themselves before setting off whether to pass the ball of whether blue 2 carries the ball all the way, with blue 1 making a dummy run.

Player 1 starts with the ball.
