Right now in our P.E. class, my group’s unit is about handball and in the class we are starting to put more knowledge about handball. At first I didn’t really know anything about handball because I thought it wasn’t a popular sport and I never really watched it on TV. How are we going to play right, if we don’t know the right rules? In this post I will be talking about some of the handball rules.
- Explain the rules about inside the D zone(6m line).
The D zone is the lines that surrounds the goal. D zone is where the goalie stands and nobody else, even your team mates. But court players can cross the line to jump shoot so they have to catch the ball in the air and shoot before you land inside of the D zone or the line.
- What’s the goal keeper’s speciality? What can he/she do? Write down as bullet points.
- They are allowed to move freely within the goal perimeter.
- Can not pass the goal perimeter if the goalie is holding or dribbling the ball.
- They are allowed to touch the ball with all parts of their body including their feet.
- The goalie can come out from the goalie circle and become as an regular player.
- If the goalie defends the ball and goes out it is still their team’s with a throw in from the goalie.
- If the ball hits the goal keeper’s hand and goes outside of the court, how is play resumed?
The ball stays in the possession of the goalie’s team and the play will resume by goalies throw in.
- Can players pass the ball to their own goalkeeper?
No, if you pass the ball to your goalkeeper the possession of the ball will change and it’ll be the other team’s ball.
- What will happen if the defensive players go inside the 6m line to defend a shot?
If the player does it to gain advantage they get penalized. If they knock out the ball from a player to defend, they loose the possession of the ball.
- What is a “fast throw-off”?
Modern Handball introduced the “fast throw-off”. The play will be immediately restarted by the referees as soon as the opponent team is satisfy with their concerns. Many teams use this rule to score easy goals before the opponent team sets up their defense.
