3 Philosophy of the game Handball is a team sport played by male or female teams. The players are allowed to handle and throw the ball using their hands, but they must not touch the ball with their feet. The objective of the game is to score and avoid getting goals. The team that scores more goals in a given period of time wins the match. The game is played at a very high speed and body contact is permitted. As a result, Fair Play has a central importance. Basic handball is either played in a sports hall or outdoors on a 40x20 metre court or a School gym. The other variations of the game, such as Mini handball, Beach Handball or Wheelchair Handball, are all based on the fundamental rules of the game, although both facilities and rules shall be adapted to their needs. Who can play the game? Handball is a team sport for two squads of 7 players (six court players and a goalkeeper) up to 14 on a team. For competition handball 1-2 referees are also necessary Basic Handball (The Traditional Game) How to Play? In Attack (with The Ball) In Defense (with-out the ball) Goalkeeper Allowed Not Allowed Consequences -Throw & catch the ball using hands & arms -Pass the ball to a team mate -Take a max. of 3 steps with the ball -Bounce the ball with one hand & catch it again -Play outside the goal area -Touch the ball in the air above the goal area -Break through the defence -Put the ball on the floor when the referee takes ball possession away -Use your hands to block the ball and use your open palms to take the ball away from the opponent -Make body contact with an opponent (in face to face position) in order to monitor the opponent s movement -Fair play - Stay outside the goal area - Stay at least 3 metres away from the free throw -Touch the ball with any part of his body inside the goal area - Leave the goal area without the ball and play as a field player -Block or kick the ball using your feet -Hold the ball for more than 3 seconds -Take more than 3 steps with the ball -Bounce the ball, catch it and bounce it again -Enter the goal area with the ball -Touch the ball inside the goal area -Charge the opponent or run into the defensive player -Throw or push the ball away after the referee takes ball possession away -Pull or hit the ball out of the hands of an opponent -Hold (body or jersey) or push, run, jump into an opponent - Endanger the opponent - Use the goal area as basic defensive position - Interfere with the execution of a free throw - Take the ball into the goal area from outside - Leave the goal area with the ball - Endanger the opponent while executing a save -Free throw for the opponent -Free throw for the opponent -Steps, free throw for the opponent -Wrong dribble, free throw for the opponent --Goalkeeper throw -Goalkeeper throw -Offensive foul free throw for the opponent -2-minute suspension -Free throw / 7m throw -Free throw / 7m throw & if movement is directed at the opponent & not at the ball -personal progressive punishment - Suspension (2 minutes) or disqualification (red card) - 7m throw - Warning (once) & personal progressive punishment - Free throw - Free throw - Personal progressive punishment
4 Handball Movement While on offense there are some things to remember: players must create space by spreading the court, and must also be a threat when attacking. Players can move the ball to from one wing position through the backcourt players to the other wing player and then the same back, which is called succession, to create holes within the defense. In order to create holes, all the players must be in constant motion. Players should start from a point around 15 m away from the goal, make two to three quick steps in the direction of the defending team. Catch the ball on the move, take one to two more steps while holding the ball, and look for a possible shot at the goal. If no shot option is there pass the ball to the next team member, who is already in his forward movement. But always be aware of a situation where players can go into a one-on-one, or if the defending players do not move, they can make a jump shot from 9-10 m to try and score. Remember that passing the ball is faster than if being carried by a player. Through the rules, players are allowed to take more than three steps if they are dribbling the ball, but this also slows the player down. In tactical playing, only dribble the ball if there is no one on your team in a position to throw the ball to. On defense when attempting to stop the attacking team, the defenders try to foresee their movements and have one defending player to each of the attacking players. In order to make one-to-one-situations more difficult all six defending players should move a bit to the ball side. To ensure that each defending player has one attacking player they should talk to each other, communication is vital to team defense. Positions Players positions have been named from left to right as left wing (LW), left back (LB), center back (CB), right back (RB), right wing (RW) and pivot (P).
5 I. Warm-up Drills When doing warm-up or cool-down drills, use only the sidelines and end lines as boundaries so that all players may play. 1) Over and Under (Figure 1) 1. Divide players into groups of two with one ball between them. 2. Have players face back to back, one foot away from each other. 3. Have players pass the ball over their heads, and then through their legs, keeping their hands on the ball at all times. 4. After every successful pass one player takes one step forward, in order for the players to be stretching their backs and abs. 5. Ensure players are passing the ball with both hands. 2) Feet Passing Stretch (Figure 2) 1. Divide players into groups of two with one ball. 2. Have players lie down on their backs, head to head, with the ball between one player s feet. 3. Players pass the ball to each other by lifting their legs, so the other player tries to grasp the ball with their feet. 3) Torso Twist (Figure 3) 1. Divide players into groups of two again with one ball. 2. Players line up back to back, one foot away from each other. 3. One player turns their torso to the right with the ball, and the other left, keeping their feet planted to the ground. Players must keep their hands on the ball at all times 4. Players pass the ball to each other stretching their backs keeping both hands on the ball. Again after every successful pass one player move further ahead. 4) Crazy Ball Madness 1. Divide players into two teams, and have them line up on opposing end lines. 2. Place all balls at the centerline. 3. Players have 45 seconds to throw as many balls onto the opposing team side.
6 4. Players cannot cross over half. 5. After 45 sec count the balls on each side. 6. Players should realize that if they hold the balls until the last few seconds and throw them all at once they could win. 7. Next time: Players can only hold onto the ball for 5 sec. 5) Touchdown 1. Divide players into two teams. 2. One team starts off with the ball at half. Teams try to score by placing the ball down on 3. the opposing teams end line. They are allowed to take as many steps as they want and as many passes, but are not allowed to dribble. 4. Opposing team tries to tag or touch the player with the ball. If they tag the player holding the ball, the ball is turned over to the other team. Give the player 3 meters to pass in the turned over ball. 5. After a few minutes progress to only 5 steps, then to 3 steps, then taking only one dribble, then finally working towards taking more than 1dribble. 6) Timed Tag 1. Divide players into two teams, using half the court and one ball. 2. One team starts off with the ball, and must tag the opposing players with the ball. 3. Players are not allowed to dribble, and must pass the ball in order to tag the players out of the game. Players may take their three steps. Players cannot throw the ball at the other players. If players go outside the boundaries they are out. 4. Time to see how long it takes each team to tag all the opposing players out. 7) Headball 1. Divide players into two teams. 2. One team starts with the ball at half, and tries to score by passing the ball down the court and trying to head the ball into the opposing net. 3. Players are not allowed to dribble and can only take three steps. Defending team tries to steal the ball. 4. There are no goalies in this game. Players should pass the ball around and move to create space. II. Footwork Drills Offensive Footwork 1) Footwork (Figure 4) 1. Have players run around the gym, and meet with another player anywhere on the court. Players stop and face each other, and take three steps, every player will fake to the left, then step to the right, then jump off their left foot (Footwork: Left, Right, Left) 2. Players should try and meet with every team member and practice this. 3. Next switch to fake left, spin to right. Progress to right, left, right (jumping off of right foot). Then fake right, spin to left.
7 Goal of Drill: Preparing players for proper footwork on offense. Have players sell the fake, which will give them space when attacking. 2) Offensive Footwork Drill (Figure 5) 1. Have players line up in a row facing the net at around 12 meters. 2. Players pass to a player standing at the 9-meter line, and then receive a pass, land in front of the net faking to one side (taking one step), and explode to the opposite side (left or right) of the net, jumping off both feet. 3. Players then take their last step and jump and shoot the ball at the goal. Goal of drill: To get players used to exploding away from the defender, instead of attacking the defender straight on. When players land, they fake one way, and jump the other around the net. Defensive Footwork 1) The Great Pinnie Grab 1. Pick a few players (approx. 1/3) to grab pinnies and place them in the back of their shorts. 2. Have other players try and remove the pinnies. The only way any player can move is defensive slides. Players cannot run, only slide. 3. After all the pinnies have been removed, pick different players to have the pinnies in their shorts. Goal of Drill: Preparing players for proper movement on defense. 2) Defensive Footwork (Figure 6) 1. Have players line up in a row, one player on the six-meter line, and one player in front standing on the 7-meter line.
8 2. Players in the line alternate going around the player from right to left, and run into the defending player chest to chest. The defense slides to the side, which the attackers are going, who makes contact and falls to the ground (taking a charge). 3. Defensive players should not be using their arms to push the player, just use the chest. When falling down, players should land on their buttocks and slide onto their backs. 4. Progress to allow the players to go to whatever side they want, so the defense must react differently. Goal of drill: Getting defense use to contact. Players on defense must move across the six-meter line, and must use their bodies to stop the attacking players. 3) Defensive Footwork #2 (Figure 7) 1. Players slide across the six-meter line keeping their hands up, then come up and hit the attacker at the nine-meter line. 2. When hitting the attacker, defense should place one hand on the players shooting arm (at the forearm, to try and stop the attacker from shooting), and the other hand on the opposite hip (to stop the momentum of the attacking player). If the attacker if right handed one hand on right arm, the other on the left hip. 3. The defender s stance should have the same foot up as the shooting arm, so if it s a right handed shooter, the defender should have the left arm on the shooting arm, and left foot slightly forward, with the right hand on the left hip. 4. Players continue back along the six-meter line, then run up the sideline, and start down the next six-meter line, and pop-up to hit the offender at the nine-meter line. Goal of Drill: Getting players used to contact, and where they should be hitting the attacker while on defense.
9 4) - Get players into groups of two. 1. Players bend at knees and attempt to swat each other s knees, trying not to get hit by the other player. Goal of drill: Getting players used to swatting at the ball during defense. III. Ball Handling Drills/Dribbling After receiving the ball and before dribbling a player holds the ball with both hands. The ball is being dribbled sideways at hip level. Bouncing on the ground is performed by the combined action of the elbow and wrist joints. The angle of the bounced ball depends on the speed that the player is moving at. The faster the run the more the angle becomes obtuse. If an opponent comes closer, a player must lower his position as well as the dribbling, protecting the ball from being taken by the opponent. With An opponent With-out an opponent Ball Handling (Figure 8) 2. Divide players in groups of two with one ball. Have players face the same direction with one player holding the ball between them.
10 3. Both players explode from side to side dropping the ball between them (both hop to the same side). Players keep the ball in the air, with their hand on top of the ball when catching and dropping. The ball must not touch the ground. 4. Option 1- have players dribble the ball, one player dribbles once, then the next hops and dribbles. Goal of drill: Get players used to the ball, and preparing them for the side-toside movements required in playing. Make sure players are exploding when they are jumping. 2) Grasping Strength 1. Have players divide into groups of two with two balls. Have both players grab the balls (one in each hand), and try to push and pull the balls out of each other s hands. Player s hands must be in front of the balls, not underneath or on the side 2. Do not twist the wrist in order to get the balls. Goal of the drill: To ensure players are grasping the ball with their fingers as hard as they can. This will help with shooting and passing. Chasing Drills (still ball Handling) 1) Chasing Drills #1 a. 1 player lines up on the 6-meter line with a ball. b. 1 player lines up on the end line. c. Whistle is blown, player with ball dribbles as fast as they can and tries to score on the goalie at the opposite end. The player on the end line tries to catch up to the player and tag or touch them. If the player with the ball is touched the drill is over. d. Option 1-players start drill sitting down, Option 2- players start drill lying on stomach. Goal of drill: Running on a fast break under pressure from the defense, while the defense attempts to stop the fast break. 2) Chasing Drills #2 a. 1 player lines up on the 6-meter line with legs spread shoulder width apart (defender). b. 1 player with ball lines up a foot behind the player on the 6-meter line. c. Player with ball bounces ball, then bounces ball between legs of the defender. The player with the ball catches the ball and continues dribbling the ball and tries to score on the goalie. The defender tries to tag the dribbler. Goal of drill: Running on a fast break under pressure from the defense, while the defense attempts to stop the fast break. 3) Chasing Drills #3
11 a. 2 players line up on 6-meter line in line with goal post facing the opposite net. b. Ball is bounced (by coach or player) anywhere on court, usually between the players. c. Players move as soon as they hear the ball bounce. Whoever gets to the ball first becomes the attacker and tries to score on the goalie, the other tries to defend. d. Option 1-start sitting down, Option 2- start lying on stomach. Goal of drill: Court awareness and fast break movement. 4) Chasing Drills #4 a. 2 players line up on 6-meter line, one player lines up on the end line. b. Players on 6-meter line have one ball; whistle is blown players run down the court passing to each other. The player on the end line tries to tag them. c. Players cannot dribble the ball, and can only take 3-steps while holding the ball. Goal of drill: Passing the ball is faster than dribbling the ball. Players must move together in order to get to the goal. IV. Shooting Technique Drills SHOOTING Shots are one of the most important elements of handball. They are vital elements that decide the scores. While shooting the muscles of the lower and upper limbs, pelvic region and trunk are extremely engaged. One can assume that shooting is performed similarly to passing, but with a stronger action of the trunk and upper limbs. The shot power is conditioned by the distance and hand action time on a ball. The greater the distance that the hand on the ball covers in the time unit the stronger the shot will be (a ball reaches a higher velocity) performed. The names of shots have been derived from the way the players move on the court and the position of his/her body to the ground. In handball there are the following shots: i. Stem Shot ii. Jump Shot Stem Shot
12 Jump Shot The analysis of a vertical jump shot from the bio-mechanics point of view, allows us to say that... i. For a jump shot (long jump) the best take-off angle is 45 degrees so that a player covers the greatest distance. ii. For a vertical jump shot the best take-off angle is 90 degrees, a player can then jump the highest. iii. The quality of a jump always depends on its initial velocity. Pictures of Jump Shots These drills should be repeated for the first few days of practice, as technique is one of the most important parts of handball. 1) Skipping Drill
13 a. Each player has a ball, and starts skipping. Swinging their arms across their bodies, turning their torso, and lifting their legs. b. Players lift the same leg and arm, and try to jump as high as they can. c. Players opposite arm should be held out in front of them. 2) Lying Down a. With a partner and a ball, get players to lie down on their backs facing each other 5-6 feet away. b. Have players extend arm back above their head, with the ball touching the ground, and their hand on top of the ball. Fingers should not touch the floor. c. Have players roll forward into a sitting position, and have the players pass the ball once up in the sitting position. d. Have players turn torso, so their opposite arm is facing forward. 3) Progression from Lying Down. a. Both players stand up approximately 6 feet away from each other. b. One player passes the ball; the person receiving the ball catches and falls into the sitting position. The players then rolls back into the lying position and then continue rolling up into a standing position, and then passes the ball. c. Players can only pass the ball once they are back in the standing position. 4) Shooting over Top a. Get into groups of three. With two players six feet away, and one player on their knees behind one of the players. b. The player on their knees throws the ball over the shoulder of the player standing in front of them. c. Ensure players are throwing while extending their arm fully. Players should be reaching and releasing the ball at the highest point. Have the standing player crouch if shorter players are throwing over top. d. Players behind catching the ball. e. Have players throwing the ball at the standing persons chest and then at the feet to ensure snapping of the wrist. 5) Shooting Technique a. Each player has one ball and faces the wall, lying down on their shooting arms side. b. Have players throw the ball against the wall, leading with their elbow and snapping their wrist. The shooting arm should finish at the opposite hip (arm is going across the body). c. Players should use abs to get more power. Back Drills 3) Stem Shots (Figure 15) a. Have players line up at LB, with one player at CB passing the ball. b. Players pass to CB, run to the bench, catch the ball, (if right handed) jumps off their right foot over the bench and lands on their left foot, and shoots the ball and follows through on their right foot.
14 Goal of drill: After players jump over the bench and land, all their momentum should be on that back foot, and then players should explode forward. Players should follow through across their bodies. 1) Hoola Hoop Drill (Figure 16) a. Have all players line up in one corner of the court, with each player holding a ball. Set up 5 hoola hoops so that the players have enough room to run through them. b. One player jumps over the pylons on both feet, and practices their technique, (lead with elbow, and snap their wrist), then runs up to the hoola hoops. The player then begins running as fast as they can, stepping in the hoola hoops. On their last step they players jump and shoot the ball at the net. Right-handed players start off on their left foot, while left-handed players start off with their right foot. c. The next player begins once the player starts running through the hoola hoops. d. Switch to the other side. e. Progress down to only three hoola hoops. a. To get players used to proper technique, start off with players jumping off a bench, instead of the last hoola hoop so that they have more time in the air to shoot the ball. Have other players sit on the ends of the bench to create more stability. Goal of drill: Players must get used to moving as fast as they can. Running through the hoola hoops taking long strides, and shooting the ball.
15 4) Jump Shot (Figure 17) a. Have players line up at left back at around 12 meters, with the other net on the nine-meter line. b. Have players pass the ball to the center back, run and catch the ball, take their three steps and shoot before the net. Players should shoot the ball before the net so that they don t injure themselves. c. Players should be jumping as high as they can making them drive there knee up, releasing the ball over top of the net, using their wrist to snap the ball down. d. To try and get players using proper technique, get them to jump off a bench before shooting the ball. Again have players sit at the end of the bench to keep it from tipping. Players should start further back so they have time to shoot the ball. Goal of drill: Proper technique, and shooting over top from back. It s important that players jump and reach as high as they can. Players must use their wrist to snap the ball down over the net. Make sure the players drive there shooting arms knee up, and follow through across their body. 2) 3-Line Drill (Figure 18) a. Divide players into 3 lines around 12 meters back; left back (LB), center back (CB), and right back (RB).
16 b. CB starts off with the ball, and passes to either the LB or the RB. The player receiving the pass must be on the move catching the ball, then takes their 3 steps and shoots the ball from the 9-meter line. c. Example: CB passes to LB, LB shoots, next LB passes to CB, CB shoots, next CB passes to RB, RB shoots, next RB passes to CB, CB shoots etc Goal of drill: Movement of backs during offense. Wing Drills 5) Rolling (Figure 19) a. Have players line up at left wing. b. Have players run through the hoola hoops, and jump off the bench. Have players jump out as far as they can and land on their left foot and shoot the ball. c. Once landed players should swing their hip and follow through with their shooting arm, so that they are now facing the opposite direction from where they started at wing. d. Now facing the other way players should backpedal out of the shot, and land on their buttocks, and roll over their shoulder out of the shot. e. Progress to shooting the ball and rolling out on gymnastic mats, so they get used to rolling. f. Switch to the right wing. Goal of drill: Proper technique of a wing shot. Player s ability to roll out of a wing shot will give them more time in the air to shoot. Players will be able to roll properly if they can twist at the hips. TEACHING OF CATCHING AND PASSING 1. General Remarks Both elements are taught together. Start with the one hand half-upper catch and pass, then teach the other more complicated movements. Thus at the beginning teach the easy elements that are often used in game. Both right and left hand catching and passing must be practiced.
17 When teaching how to catch the ball, you must remember that players.. I. Should keep their eyes on the ball until they have caught it. II. must spread their fingers, inner palms to the ball, and slightly bend their elbows. III. While catching the player must assume a posture required to pass. IV. Should always move to the ball, without waiting. V. Should not correct the catch. Various Catching Methods - In handball there are the following methods of catching the ball: a) upper b) half-upper c) lower d) in midair e) after bounce f) from the ground g) with the help of the other hand h) putting down a ball Teaching how to pass, always remember... i. To pass with the right and left hand. ii. That passing should be as simple as possible, without additional moves. iii. that the ball must be passed in front of a player, taking into account the player s speed. iv. That the pass should be performed while running. v. to practise short and long passing, taking into account the particular vi. Situation on the playing field. V. Passing /Catching Drills 1) Rectangle Drill (Figure 9 a & b) a. Divide players into lines in form of a rectangle; as per Figure 1. b. The ball starts at 2 opposing corners. c. The ball is passed to the next player on the right, once the ball is passed the players run to the other side. Corner players must run diagonally across. d. Option 2- pass to the left, Option 3- after passing run half way, and backpedal the other half.
18 e. Call the players name before passing the ball, players receiving the ball must be aware that the ball is coming. Crisp passes and running No jogging. Goal of drill: Passing and catching. This drill develops awareness of oncoming passes, communication between the players and movement without the b 2) Rectangle Drill #2 (Figure 10) a. Divide players into each corner and at half along the sidelines. b. One player in the corner starts with the ball, runs half way along the end line or sideline and passes to the next player on the move, who receives a pass approximately half way between the lines. They stop and pass to the next player on the move. c. Have players stop when passing the ball to ensure better passes. Goal of drill: Passing and catching on the move. Players must be able to catch the ball while running, and be prepared to stop to make a pass to another player on the move. 3) 4-Line Drill (Figure 11)
19 a. -Divide players into 4 lines along the end line, 2 players along the sideline and 2 middle players by the goal posts. b. The middle lines have balls. c. The middle players pass the ball to the outside players, and cross with the other middle player, then receive the ball from the opposite side. d. Outside players take 3 steps and pass, dribbling is not allowed from the outside players. Always face forward, looking at the net. Goal of drill: Passing and court awareness. The middle players must cross with each other, while catching the ball on the move. 4) 2-Line Drill (Figure 12) a. Divide players into 2 lines along the end line, around 1-2meters apart. b. One ball for every two players. c. Players run up the court passing the ball quickly between them, until they reach the end line. Once they reach the end line, the players run to the sidelines and make long passes to each other. Catch on the move, but stop to pass the ball. d. Have players look at the net before passing the ball. Goal of drill: Passing and catching. Players make short quick passes up the court, while running. Then make long passes across the court to a player on the move. Make sure players look at the net first when catching a ball.
20 5) 3-Man-Weave (Figure 13) a. Divide players into 3 lines along the end line. b. Middle line starts with ball, and then passes to either side. c. Players follow their pass, and take over the empty line. d. Keep players wide, crisp passes. e. Option 2- reverse 3-man-weave, passing players must run in front of the players instead of running behind them. Goal of drill: Crossing with players, and catching the ball on the move. Again make sure players are looking at the net before catching the ball. 6) Star Drill (Figure 14) a. Have players divide into position, LW, LB, CB, RB, and RW. b. Have one ball start at the wing position LW. The ball is passed to the LB (1), across to the RB (2), down to the RW (3), and then to the CB (4), then passed back to the LW (5). c. Have players follow their passes. Players are on the move when catching the ball; they take their three steps and then pass the ball. d. Option 1- go in the opposite direction, starting from LW, LW to CB, CB to RW, RW to RB, RB to LB, and LB to LW., Option 2- add another ball. Goal of drill: Passing from positions, always face the net as to be an offensive threat. Players attack and act as a threat and pass the ball.
21 Pivot Drills 6) Passing to the Pivot (Figure 20) a. Have the pivot line up on the six meter line, with one defender about 1 meter in front of him. Have one player (the passer) stand on the 9 meter line. b. The pivot is restricted to move between the pylons, while the defender tries to stop a pass from going to the pivot. c. The passer tries to get a pass into the pivot, passing so the pivot is moving to get the ball. No lob passes over the defender. Goal of drill: Movement of pivot into the open space, allowing an open shot. 7) Jumping Over (Figure 21) a. Have one player lie between the 6 and 9-meter lines.
22 b. Have another player hold the pivot by the waist as hard as they can. The pivot tries to get free by pumping their legs and running. c. Once free the pivot runs and jumps over the player lying down, receives a pass, turns and faces the net, and then shoots the ball. d. Pivot should jump towards the net. Goal of drill: Pivot must fight for position. 8) Guessing Drill (Figure 22) a. Have a pivot line up on the 6-meter line facing the goalie. b. The coach blows the whistle, and a player bounce passes the ball to the pivot, on either side on the pivot. c. The pivot turns around on the sound of the whistle, and must find where the ball is coming from. d. Once the pivot catches the ball they turn and face the net and shoot the ball. Goal of drill: Pivot must react to where the ball is played.
