Handball drills for all skills


  • Players stand back to back facing the wall at a distance of 4 to 5 feet.
  • The first player throws the ball and gets out of the way of the second player who has to catch the ball.
  • Then the second player throws and the third player catches the ball, etc.
  • Variation:
    • Larger run distance for being back in line.
    • Put the pawn behind the row formed, they must first go around it before they can join the row.
    • The first player has the ball.
    • The ball is thrown against the wall and the first player jumps over the ball with their legs spread wide.
    • The next player catches the ball and throws it against the wall.
    • The first player joins the back of the row. Etc
      • The exercise can also be performed as a competition.
      • In which case the player who cannot catch the ball or jump over it must disappear from the line.


  • Course with conditional elements
  • Touch the first pylon.
  • Slide into the square.
  • Left/right first row then to second row.
  • Repeat from the first row.
  • Lift the knee of the ladder.
  • Between the poles and finish on the target.


  • You make pairs.
  • These pairs start calmly walking through the hall with a ball.
  • About every minute you make it a little faster.
  • So we slowly work from a slow running pace to a sprinting pace.
  • You can also choose to give different instructions to a pair.
  • Examples of this are:
    • Passes with a jump.
    • Passes with 2 arms.
    • Pass with 2 arms above the head.
    • Sprint the other way after a pass.

  • 4 attackers.
  • 3 defenders.
  • 1 attacker stands like a circle in the middle.
  • 3 defenders stand around it.
  • The other attackers try to play the ball around by applying pressure.
  • The attacker in the middle.
  • Defenders try to intercept and prevent the attacker in the middle from receiving the ball.
  • Attention defenders:
    • Talking.
    • Stepping out.
    • Step back.
    • Good foot forward.
    • Blocking space with arms.
    • Cover your back.
  • See Insta-film.

  • From the left and right set-up positions, two ladders are laid out diagonally.
  • The group is divided over the ladders, the goalkeeper stands on goal.
  • The group on the left hand side starts with the ladders.
  • After the last ladder they make a zero pass and finish on goal with a jump shot.
  • When the first of the left group has reached the halfway point, the first of the right group starts.
  • Variation in the laddering:
    • 2 legs high speed through the ladder
    • 2 legs in the ladder, then out ( jump )
    • 2 feet on the ladder, 2 feet next to the ladder (dribbling).
    • 2 passes to the front 1 to the back
  • You can also place a passive defender for the players to shoot over.

Throwing up in different ways in pairs

  • With your right hand
  • With your wrong hand
  • With bounce
  • Throwing to each other from a greater distance
  • Throwing to each other from close range


  • All players stand on the side avenue, 4 lines are set out.
  • At 70% you run to the first line and backwards back to the sideline.
  • Then to the 2nd line and backwards, 3rd line etc.
  • Variation:
    • Bounce the ball
    • Holding ball back
  • We do this 4 times,
    • 2 times without ball and
    • 2 times with ball.
    • In between 30 sec rest

2 or 3 teams depending on the size of the group.

  • Start all behind the pawn
  • The first one starts and goes with 2 feet at the same time through the ladder, sprints to the pawn, goes around it and runs back to the group (not through the ladder again)
  • Ticks the next player and he does the same.
  • The team that is sitting down first has won.


  • Inclined through the running ladder ( face right or left)
  • Backwards through the ladder
  • Without ladder with ball and slalom (tipping)
  • Slalom with the wrong hand (tipping)


  • The focus here is on defending.
  • Attackers are outnumbered, 3 and the defenders are 2.
  • There is one attacker on the circle and two build-up players.
  • The attackers are going to look for the defenders and try to play 1 on 1.
  • The runner on the circle is going to offer herself and may also finish.
  • It is important that the defenders talk to each other and step out and back in time.

Variation: 1 additional defender 3:3
