What skill is a must-have to be a good handball player?
The coordination of your eyes and hands need to be great. You need to be able to calculate the movement of the ball coming at you at 70mph, strategize, and execute your move, all in under half a second
Physical fitness, strength, and stamina are the most important. This sport involves a lot of running and moving across the court and that calls for incredible physical fitness.
Secondly, you need to have an excellent reaction time and incredible agility. This is because you have to dodge incoming players, catch the ball, and make your way around other players. All of this needs you to not only be able to move but to do it quickly.
The most important skill needed for handball is a quick reaction time. Even if you are exceptional at shooting, passing, and throwing, if you cannot react quick enough to a ball coming at you, you can’t be a good player.
Throwing, also known as passing, is the single most useful and important skill for a handball player. That’s the reason why shooting and throwing skills drills are an integral part of any handball training class.
