Pre-season is the perfect time to start building a solid base for your team's fitness in preparation of the first game of the season.
Speed and Endurance
Use these routines to improve your players' agility and stamina running before getting them working in small groups. While focusing on their fitness levels remember to always have them running with a ball in hand, this will help improve their dribbling and passing at the same time as their stamina.
Responsibility for Personal Fitness
To see real improvements in your players' stamina, individuals have to be responsible for their own fitness. It is important they run or play handball three times a week. Any less than this and any improvements in your team's fitness levels will be lost.
For this reason encourage your players to train outside of your handball sessions.
Note: sections of this plan can be used for running a fitness session with groups from 5 to 50 people
Use the Give and Go in handball to create space, get past defenders and give your team the attacking edge!
Fast paced, give and go, running shot handball session - Get your players to release the quick shot to catch the opposition on the back foot!
Regular analysis of your own performance as a coach will ensure you continue to improve your ability to deliver top quality sessions.
Like many other international tournaments, we've had to wait a little longer for it to start but it's time to get excited for some big hitting!
