Important that players are constantly on the balls of their feet in
‘anticipation’ of the shot. Where possible, a player should move to a
position about 6ft deeper in the court than the ball should be
contacted – this is called the pre shot position.
↑
Players should strive to increase their court speed – (this is not
simply running fast, more so being able to cover all corners of the
court)
Footwork Drill:
1) Player starts in centre of the court & runs backwards
to the back of the court
2) Player runs to right corner
3) Before side-stepping to short line
4) Player repeats drill for left side

Kill Shot
To develop the pupils ability to
hit the ball so low on the front
wall to make it irretrievable, i.e.
a kill.
Shots should be executed
efficiently and smoothly,
focusing on footwork
The kill shot is the primary attacking shot in Handball. Can be
performed with either an underarm or sidearm stroke. The sidearm
stroke is the recommended and most effective stroke to kill the ball.
Kill Shot Key Points:
Players on the balls of their feet in anticipation
Body moving forward before ball is hit
Get into the pre-shot position as quickly as possible
-
Similar basic execution principals as underarm stroke
Ball should be hit downwards using downwards body
momentum
