Handball drills for all skills

  • Two teams with 2 or 3 hoops each. 
  • Attackers try to lay a trap in an enemy hoop. 
  • Variants, not tipping
  • Two rows, left and right one ball.
    • Make a threat
    • Play the ball
    • Tap the goalpost
    • Step out to the centre pilon
    • Run back to left pilon
    • Forward to middle 
    • Back to right pilon.
  • Then join another row at the back.

  • Defender in a hoop, while attacker 1 and 2 bounce
  • Expand to 2 defenders in a hoop and finally 1 loose defender
  • Three kids in a row, one kid in front. 
  • The front of the row throws to the child in front and connects to the back. 
  • Each time another child is in front and vary (bounce, jumpshot, 3 steps)
  • You can also make a game out of it with another row.
  • Divide over left & right with one ball
  • Each time you cross over
    • Sprinting to the pole 
    • Connect at the back of the row 
  • For the physical condition this is a good exercise: 
  • The group has to stand in a row and you let them start dribbling easily. 
  • As soon as the trainer blows the whistle, the last one of the row should run forwards. 
  • You do this until everyone has been last in line and then you let them run a round relaxed 
  • Mini field / 1 ball
  • Divide the group into 2 equal teams (each team starts on the back line of the mini field) 
  • Try to get the ball behind the opposing team's back line (by playing over/ running free).
  • Team that is not in possession of the ball tries to intercept/tap out/possess the ball
  • (you can make the exercise more difficult, by using a soft ball (that doesn't bounce) and don't let them run (3 passes))   

  • All players with ball on the middle line
  • Player plays the ball to the trainer and gets it back while running.
  • Player shoots the ball on target.       



  • Bring the ball to the other side in pairs and score.
  • Red brings the ball to the other side and tries to score.
  • Start in pairs from the back line.
  • At the moment red tries to score a goal, green is allowed to start to score a break-out at the other side as well.
  • Red then defends back.
  • When green has taken a chance they have to go back to defend the other two red players. 
  • These of course start when green has taken a goal attempt. 
  • This exercise can continue in current form because the players keep coming back on their own side. 
  • You can do this on time (which group has scored the most goals?) or you can set a limit to a number of goals scored.
