Swaffham Year 5 & 6 Handball Championship
Time & Location
About the Event
Each team consists of six outfield players and a goalkeeper. Each goal is worth one point and the team with the most points at the end of the game wins. When in possession, a player can pass, shoot or dribble the ball – similar to in basketball.
A player is permitted to take up to three steps for up to three seconds at a time without dribbling the ball. Further key rules include no player being allowed in the goalkeeper’s area and not being able to pass back to the goalkeeper whilst he remains in his area.
Handball also has its own version of penalties. When a clear chance of scoring is illegally prevented anywhere on the court by an opposing team player, the result is a seven-meter throw for the attacking team, one-against-one with the goalkeeper.
