CHANGING THE ROAD

Avoiding Chest-to-Chest Combat

 

Methodology developed by “Handball Education Coaching Team” coaches Krešimir Pažin and Domagoj Matoic

There are a few basic handball skills that Marija and her teammates need to master in order to be able to learn "changing the road".

Please re-read the chapters "Penetration" and "Recognizing the Game Area" and continue reading only if you are 100% sure that your team has mastered all that is written in it.

If you are not 100% sure about this, take another 6 months or a year for learning.

If you do this, both you and the players will appreciate it.

If you don't because you don't have time for it now, the damage will be double:

You will never have time to go back to basics, and you will deprive your players of the opportunity to learn them, so their skills will be superficial, and to correct the wrong habits will take maybe 5 times more time, and in the older age groups you will not have that time.

If this knowledge is not well understood by the players, everything you try to do from "Changing the Roads" will be in vain and will create frustration, instead of handball progress and enjoying the game.

The ball will often drop, passes will be inaccurate, players will make the wrong decisions and wonder why they are unsuccessful, the movements will be non-alined and the overall play in the attack will be ineffective.

On the other hand,

if you have a good path of learning "Penetration" and "Recognizing the Game Area",

playing by the principles of "Changing the Road" becomes simple and unpredictable,

and the players are efficient

because they are able to escape the defenders in a timely manner.

Game reading is automated, and teamwork is accurate regardless of how the defence plays.

 

AUTOMATING GAME READING,

and

NOT AUTOMATING ATTACKERS' MOVEMENT

 

Traditional methods of learning penetration are seen as a combination of several simple ways of movement:

Movement geometry:

  1. diagonal
  2. semicircular
  3. vertical

Biomechanics of movement:

  1. athletic running
  2. cross step
  3. shift sideways
  4. sidestepping
  5. changing direction

Learning to perform the penetration consists of automating these movements.

Handball education teaches the biomechanics of movement through the development of overall coordination, and does not want to teach movement geometry through movement automation, but as a natural outcome of solving game situations.
