2018 EHF “Rinck” Convention Open Master Coach and Licencing Course Master Coach: Thesis
COMPARISON OF THE TACTICAL USAGE OF THE 7TH FIELD PLAYER IN THE 2018 MEN’S AND WOMEN’S HANDBALL CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL 4
The aim of the study was to analyse the tactical usage of the 7th player in the matches of Men and Women Champions League Final 4 2018. All actions with 7 against 6 players were analysed in video.
- In the previous studies and presentation of EHF Lectures we have seen that some National teams during the European Championship started to use the extra player not only in case of inferiority but also to create effective superiority, in the last module of European Master Coach in Gyor there was also a presentation regarding the training of 7 against 6 tactical tool. According to the data of the 2 final 4 of the men´s and women ‘s European handball champions league 2018 we can affirm the tactical tool of the 7thfield player (extra player) in this championship was more used in women’s competition than in the men’s one.
- Probably in the future will be increased the usage of that tactical tool also in the champions league final 4 with more use or efficiency of the last in 2018 and some new tactical solutions will be inserted. How we can see all the team took a risk in case of a suspension and inferiority but, not so often they utilized the 7th player. Maybe soon the same risk will be calculated and trained also for the 7thfield player and at the same time there will be always more attention and training sessions regarding the application and the utilization of this tactical tool.
