Stronger Defending When Protecting The Goal

Handball is a demanding contact sport so this session introduces your players to the more physical side of the game so your defenders can overcome their fears in 1v1 situations so they are ready for game time.

Improve the willingness of players all ages and abilities to contest the ball and stand up to the opposition through use of these progressive drills and blocking exercises, which also recap the technical aspects of the sport.

What's in the Session?

To get your players in the blocking zone we start with a confidence building pairs-blocking-drill. Players work together to build blocking confidence while learning the benefits of team-work when defending and blocking to keep out an opposition’s attack.

Final thought:

If your team continually leaks goals no matter how well you attack, they will always struggle to win matches - especially in the final quarter when your players are tired. So use this plan to give your team the best chance of winning.
