A counterattack is an important part of handball game, where both, the technical and the tactical elements are used. By counterattack modern and quick handball is played and therefore the number of goals at matches is increasing. The effectiveness in the counterattack is better than in the game played against the set defensive formation. The counter attack is executed right after the team gets the ball in its possession and passes it to the opponent´s half of the court. We know many effective ways of executing the counterattack, thus a thorough analysis of the players is needed to choose the appropriate counterattack.
We train the counterattack gradually through the basics elements of the game, first individually and then in a pai or in a group. To achieve quality future work, it is necessary to master the game at the level where the movements are done at high speed.
The counterattack can be tactically executed in many ways, mainly to make the work of the opponent team, who has not form the defence yet, more difficult. To execute it well, all the players need to know their tasks in the attack, their positions in switching to attack and the combinations at the opponent´s half.
In the thesis I will present the individual counterattack and the methodology of gradually training it. The young and the more mature players learn its accurate execution step by step.
