Handball drills for attack / offense

  • make several teams of 5, 4 or 3 players / depending on the number of players in the training
  • 2 teams start to play against each other
  • who scores continues playing, who does not score leaves the field and a new team comes on the field
  • give different instructions at the beginning, e.g. always a change must be included, no steuten or 10-second rule double score....


  • Organization:
  • Make 5 equal groups, 1 group at each side and 3 in the middle.
  • Make sure both sides have several balls.
  • Put 2 defenders (red) just inside the 9 meter line.

  • Sequence:
  • B1 plays to B2
  • B2 runs to the ball and plays to B3
  • B3 plays to B4 and B4 tries to score.
  • Meanwhile, B1 has to chase the ball to help the defenders.
  • Then repeat from left to right.

  • Points of attention:
    Swap positions clockwise every 2 minutes, after 10 min everyone will have played every position.
    Pass quickly and accurately, and put pressure in the joint (i.e. between 2 defenders, if the defenders get the ball, the exercise stops and you start again from the other side.
  • Both start in a corner,
  • circle the pawn, whoever gets to the ball first is the attacker
  • and tries to score.
