PART 1. You are required to correct and rewrite the following explanation of the game of handball and then post it on your blog with appropriate headings etc.
Handball (also known as team Handball, etc. Team Handball is a team sport in which two teams of seven players each (six outfield players and a goalkeeper on each team) pass a ball to throw (shoot) it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of two periods, 30 minutes each, including a half-time at 15 minutes, and the team who has scored more goals win. Modern handball is usually played indoor, but outdoor variants exist in the forms of field handball. The game is quite fast and includes body contact, as the defenders try to stop the attackers from approaching the goal. However, the contact is only allowed when the defender is in front of the offensive player. Players can dribble the ball like in basketball and can take
4 3 steps without dribbling. They can also pass using, chest pass, bounce 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 to the opponent’s goal. The next phase is to get into a scoring position. No players are allowed inside the D zone. Faults occur when players are considered as good defense and refractory to the offensive team’s offensive rhythm. Fouls, although, occur when players use excessive force and play is re-started with the opponent’s free throw. Depending on where the player has violated the opponent, the play will probably be re-started with the opponent’s seven meter free throw. Players are allowed infinite amount of faults, which acts like fouls in basketball. However, if they create excessive forces to the opponents they could end up as a penalty. Penalties requires more punishment compared to a simple free-throw. Penalties include the opponent’s 7-meter penalty shot, two minute suspension if the foul was very menace or it can even end up to completely leave the playing area.
PART 2 You second task is to design 2 drills and post them with explanations and diagrams on your blog. The First drill is a warm up drill suitable for Handball. Name: Catch the Ball! Skills used: Defense, Offense, Shooting, Passing, Goalkeeping, Ball handling.
In this warm up, you will need at least 8 people (at least 4 on each side). The size of the field should be no larger than 25*15m^2. The objective is to bring the ball inside the 6m line (in Handball) from the opponent’s side to your side by either passing the ball over the boundary line, or shooting from the opponent’s side to your side.
However, if the opponents captures you while you attempt to capture the ball, you will be sent to jail. The jail is located at the side of the field (one per side, two in total), and your team mates have to save you by touching you without getting captured by the opponents.
Once you get the ball inside the 4m line, you have to get out within five seconds, or you will be forced to get to jail.
The Second Drill is a handball skill development drill to develop either passing skills, defensive skills or shooting skills.
Name: Indiana Pass/Shoot Drill
Skills used: Passing, Shooting, Ball Handling.
Here is a diagram for the drill, since it is really complicated: You start at either of the red squares. You pass the ball to the passers (the green circles), while you sprint forward (blue dotted lines). Near the yellow squares, you will receive the pass from the passers you passed. You will continue this until there is no more passers to pass in front of you. You will either dribble or take three steps and shoot from the orange square! Make sure you get your ball immediately because there will be people shooting from behind. Afterwards, you go to the closest red square, and repeat the structure. After few minutes (your choice), you will switch the sides of the red squares in order to shoot from the left side. You should also substitue the passers with other people who were doing the drill.
