„…the concept has not changed. This manual is still aimed at all levels of players and coaches
from beginners to the more advanced…it is at all levels a comprehensive treatise of the game,
yet each chapter is self-contained and may be used as a separate unit on its own.”
Dr. Zoltán Marczinka
„The new and updated edition in hand pays great attention to the fact that handball has

ABOUT THE GOALKEEPER IN GENERAL
DEVELOPING THE GOALKEEPER
Position Specific Training in Handball, our newest publication, aims to facilitate the development of adult or junior players.
For better understanding, each position’s specific technical and tactical basic element is supplemented with 47 video clips which were produced by the Hungarian University of Physical Education’s TÁMOP Project with the help of this book’s authors. These can be viewed with the help of a QR code reader app. They are teaching videos which assist the technical preparation that each position’s movement repertoire requires.
We trust that this position specific and exercise manual will help readers acquire a good foundation of the combined development of attacking and defending tasks and this will help to create a better balance between attacking and defending activity as well as the formation of more effective and realistic training perspective.
„You are holding a book in your hand that has been a long time in the making and perhaps should have been written earlier. Due to the rising popularity of the sport, to escalating international competition and to the high expectations of fans and sport authorities, the stakeholders of Hungarian handball were compelled to come up with a new strategy for the youth development program. A crucial element of this is that there be an adequate, unified piece of literature for the coaches and teachers taking part in coaching education and teaching handball in schools. With all this in mind, we have attempted to create a manual that can be utilised as a whole or chapter by chapter.
We trust that this unique manual will help provide a higher standard of training and preparation for young players. it is our hope that the professionals will work with as much devotion, passion and sense of responsibility as what we felt when writing this book.
