DRIBBLING, PERIPHERAL VISION, SELFISHNESS, TEAM, etc. (3)
The development and use of peripheral vision in handball can be simplified as the idea that a player needs to look at something and see something else.
The child which is trying to come in the position to score the goal by dribbling usually knows in advance where the goal is and is looking the ball. In a better case, his attention is on the defender who wants to stop him.
A child which is trying to come in the position to score the goal by passing the ball and open himself after the passing should pay attention to the 4 defenders and 3 teammates at the same time. Given the size of the court and the speed at which he will be fouled, there is almost no time to evaluate what will be the next movement of these seven players.
If he is able to see only a point in which he focused view, he will not be successful. To be able to play like this it is necessary to be able to react to a lot of movements on the field (Learning creativity in sport, pg. 129) and it is an incentive to the development of these skills.
Encourage children to score goals by dribbling is not the impetusfor the development of peripheral vision; however, it was the fastest and safest way to victory in mini handball.
