COLLECTIVE TACTICS OF THE ATTACK 1/13

COLLECTIVE TACTICS OF THE ATTACK 1/13

(6:6 is always better than 1: 6)

The common tactic of attacking at all team sports is

the creation of numerical superiority of attackers in a particular part of the playground

or a dominant situation to play 1: 1 depending on the ability of an attacker.

There are 4 parameters of a collective attack in handball that enable us to create such situations in a quality way:

WIDTH

 

DEPTH

 

SPEED

 

DYNAMIC IMBALANCE

 

1. WIDTH:

(how to use better the 18m of 6m line?)

 

In order to better understand the importance of the width of the attack, imagine two extremes on the handball court:

  1. ONE ATTACKER PLAYS AGAINST ONE DEFENDER
  2. 40 ATTACKERS PLAY AGAINST 40 DEFENDERS

In the first case, the attacker is in great advantage because he can easily escape the defender who needs to cover 10 meters on each side:

 

In the second case, it is almost impossible to score a goal because the defenders have to defend only 25 cm on each side and there is no gap between them:

 

All real game situations from playing 2:2 to 6:6 are somewhere between the two extremes, and our goal is to get closer to the extreme 1:1 than 40:40.

Handball is not played either 1:1 or 40:40,

but creating game situations in large space

is always an advantage for the attackers.

For this reason, it is important for children to play in large spaces, although they prefer to move towards the middle as it is easiest way to score from there, and the problem they thus create is the density of defence and reduction of the playing space.

 

If the left and right backs mostly attack 6-7 meters from the out line, the team comes in a situation where 8 players are playing in the width of about 8 meters (3 backs, line player and 4 defenders).

On the other hand, if we learn to play 2-3 meters from the out line, 8 players are in the space of about 16 meters.

 

So, by creating good habits with back players, we change the way we play and increase the ability to score goals.

    […] The same logic leads us to coaching wings. By attacking between the first and second defensive player, the wing creates a numerical superiority for offense, but if he does it 3-4 meters from the out line, he decreases the playing possibilities for the back, i.e. if he follows the creation of numerical superiority, he will enter into the playing area of the centre back.
