Handball AJ (10 mins)

Handball Warm Up

12 players

2 target boxes, 5 v 5 with 2 target players, 20y by 20y area

Ball is played with the hands, players cannot run with the ball in hand, no players apart from the target players are allowed in the target area, players throw to each other, defending team can only intercept and block.

I start by saying the team with the ball can only pass to the target player once they have made 3 passes, once a player passes to a target player they swap positions The team who conceded start with the ball.

First to 7 points or 10 minutes playing time.

This is a good movement to get the players communicating, working as a team, finding space and also has the physical benefits of a warm up.

Progressions:

1) Have to pass to every player on the team before you can pass to the target player

2) Players have to make 5 passes

3) Players head instead of throwing
