Handball drills for all skills


  • Centre plays ball to set-up, set-up starts in direction of corner and corner comes running in.
  • The set-up plays the ball near the sideline to the corner player, who presses between 1 and 2 and plays the ball to the centre.
  • At that moment, the set-up passes behind again and receives the ball from the centre, finishing on goal.
  • Bringing the ball up in teams of 3 (left formation, middle formation and right formation) and scoring the goal on the other side.



  • Bring up the ball in 2 teams from your own 6 meter area.
  • On your own half of the field you encounter 1 defender (stays only on this half of the field).
  • On the other half of the field you encounter 2 defenders, but you also have a circle runner offensively.


  • Red brings the ball up to the other side and tries to score.
  • Pairs start from the back line.
  • As soon as red makes a goal attempt, green may start to score a breakout at the opposite side.
  • Red defends back.
  • When green has taken a goal they have to go back to defend the other two red players.
  • These have of course started at the moment that green has taken a goal attempt.
  • This exercise can continue in a flowing way, because the players keep coming back to their own side.
  • You can do this on time (which group has scored the most goals?) or you can choose who has scored the most goals.


  • One person on the left side of the pitch (can also be another position) and this person has to shoot as many balls at the goal as possible within 1 minute (or longer).
  • The rest of the players collect balls and one of them plays the balls to the ball.
  • Shooting the link-up in succession.
  • Keep track of how many times the player has scored.
  • When you have shot, you must walk backwards to your position. Keep changing until everyone has been there.


  • Different ways of approaching (i.e. slightly inwards or outwards etc.)
  • Different shots (underhand throw, bend throw, out of the way, etc.)
  • Use more than 1 position


  • Green passes 2 - 1 - 2 and shoots at goal.
  • After throwing on goal you are handball
  • 3-1-3 and shoot at goal.

Also useful for playing into the goalkeeper:

  • On the hands
  • Top corner left / right
  • Shoulder height left / right
  • Knee height left / right
  • Bouncing balls left / right
  • Low balls left / right



  • Green passes 2 - 1 - 2 and shoots at goal.
  • after throw on goal you are handball player, after handball you are goalie
  • 3-1-3 and shoot on goal.


  • Blue crosses over,
  • Red must try to get rid of the ball.
  • Ball away? -> defend until everyone has lost their ball.
  • Too easy?
    • Extra defenders.
    • 3 times a ticker,
    • whoever catches the balls in the shortest time is the winner.


  • The teacher sets out three areas of approximately equal size with pawns.
  • It is best to use the volleyball lines (see map).
  • There are three sections (see map):
  • Left: barons square (losers square)
  • Centre: princes section (neutral section)
  • Right: king of the court (winner section)
  • All students stand in the middle section.
  • With a signal from the teacher the game starts.
  • All pupils have to try to tap/strike the ball of another pupil out of the box.
  • If you succeed you move one square to the right.
  • If your ball is knocked away you move up one square to the left.
  • If you hit/tap someone's ball out of the box on the right you score a point.
  • If your ball is knocked out of the winner's box you lose all your points.
  • If your ball is knocked out of the left box nothing happens and you stay standing.
  • When the teacher gives the final signal the person with the most points is king of the court and he/she has won.
