Handball drills for ball control

This game can be played as an end game but also during training and as a warm-up, which makes it appealing, especially since you can differentiate and change it well.

  • Two teams are made in a square of about 10 by 10.
  • One team starts with the ball, the goal of this team is to pass the ball to a teammate 10 times.
  • The goal of the other team is to intercept and pass the ball 10 times.

This game comes in different situations.
Examples are:
  • Larger/smaller field
  • Different way of passing (MUST via bounce, MUST through the air).
  • Toss straight, further and further apart
  • Bouncing closer together again
  • Throwing high, jumping catch (with null pass) further and further apart
  • 2 Players pass the ball at a good pace
  • Players take turns trying to intercept and finish directly on goal. Do not stop, but continue directly at speed
  • Keepers spread out over 2 goals so that they can continue in quick succession.

  • Make a big circle with all players
  • Start with two balls and pass to each other, always skipping 1 person in the circle.
  • Always bring an extra ball into play.
  • Attention:
    • Good arm position,
    • Stand on the front feet, right leg in front.
    • Good catching with triangle behind the ball.
    • Good fit.

  • The player in the middle receives the ball from the goalkeeper and plays it to his/her left or right
    • At the end, you can choose to make a change.
  • The attackers finish near the goalkeeper
  • The aim of the outer build-up is to run wide and create a lot of space for themselves and the rest of the team
  • When the rounding is completed, the players wait at the other end until everyone has been through and then they do the same.
