I'm a right-handed left back. How can I learn to shoot with my left hand?

Hey. I am 14 years old,186cm tall (6'11) and I weight 81 kg(178 pounds). I am right-handed and I play left back,but I also play right back often,because in team, we don't have high left-handed players ,so left backs play on both positions.

I want to start shooting with left hand, but I don't know how to start working on it and make the shoot strong as shoot with right hand(or strong enough so I can score with left hand).

Can you give me tips,or training plan,so I would know what should I do to make it strong as my right hand?

Thanks in advance

1. Start as very young players start how to play handball : the basic shot : center shot
2. Try to learn it step by step using the right technical feedback. - right foot slightly pointing inwards in front - lifting the arm as far as 90 degrees upperarm - body - stretching it backwards etc : see coaching points center shot : so learn it from the beginning and try to learn it by adding another technical coaching point every time
3. Try to shoot faster every time : that is : performing it in a more explosive way
4. Then try to make jump shots etc
So first : center shot and then the rest.

Practise at home indoors with a foamball as often as you can.
Once at the training try to throw as many times as possible with your left arm - do drills when warming-up with a partner just before or after your training session.
Use the wall as a training object by throwing at a certain point on the wall.
Try to master the three/two step rythm before throwing.

It will be an investment in time, but in the end you might be able to score goals with both hand which is rather surprising for opponenets.

Good luck!

Huh,thank you Roland.

While doing power trainings, try to place emphasis on your less-effective (left) side and as you build those muscles... exercise them most often, placing emphasis on techniques and accuracy adn with time you'll be there!

Hope, this adds up to Roland's great advice!!
