A standard match consists of 4 quarters of 16 minutes, and the first team to score 3 goals wins. Modern handball is usually played in a swimming pool, but outdoor variants exist in the forms of field handball. The game is quite fast and includes no body contact, as the defenders try to stop the attackers from approaching the goal. Players can dribble the ball like in basketball and can take 4 steps. They can also pass using, chest pass, bounce pass and kick pass. Players are only allowed to be in possession of the ball for 3 seconds before either passing or shooting at goal. The game has different phases. Firstly a team needs to gain possession of the ball and this usually occurs with the goalkeeper. The objective is to turn defence into attack. The next phase is moving the ball back away from the opponents goal and to your own goal. The next phase is to get into a scoring position. No players are allowed inside the D zone. However, every player is allowed inside the F zone. Fouls occur when players use excessive force and play is re-started with a jump ball. Players are only allowed a maximum of 5 fouls before they must exit the game. 


Corrected Version:

Handball (also known as team handball) is a sport which two teams of seven players (two outfield players and a goalkeeper on each team) pass a ball and try and throw it into the goal. A standard match consist of 4 quarters which are 30 minutes each. Modern Handball is usually played indoors, however it can also be played out doors which is called “Field Handball” or “Czech Handball”, which can be known as Sandball or beach ball. The game can be fast or slow (it depends what is happening at the time) and includes body contact, and the defenders try and stop the attacks from scoring. Players can dribble the ball like in basketball (but not exactly the same why, because you can dribble with two hands if u want, and stop dribbling and start again) and you can take three steps when not dribbling. The players can also pass. With the: chest pass, the bounce pass, and/or the over head pass. There are usually two stages of the game:

1) Players must gain possession of the ball. This will usually start with the goalkeeper. 

2) Players must try and get the ball into the other teams goal. 

No players are allowed are allowed inside the D-zone. You can also commit unlimited fouls.


The first drill that I am creating is a warm up. The warm up will need to have 10-20 cones as well as 1-5 people. The cones will need to be in a circle. and one after the other just dribble around the cones.

The second one is the same thing however in a straight line and and at the end it is a shot on goal in one of the four corners of the goal.
