The fast break is an attractive and essential element of handball which is not only exciting for spectators, but also a great way to score a quick goal on the counter, after a defensive turnover.
Speed is important for an effective fast break but what is more important is the awareness. When a player notices that they are not involved in a defensive action, they should be looking to make a sprint up court, as soon as their team is back in possession. Equally, when other players have the ball, they should be looking up and picking out the forward pass.
