LOZANO, Demetrio; CAMERINO, Oleguer  y  HILENO, Raúl. Analysis of the offensive tactical behavior in critical moments of game in the high performance in handball: a study Mixed Methods. CPD [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.151-160. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to analyse factors that influence attacking play during critical moments of elite handball matches from a dynamic, ecological perspective within a Mixed Methods research design. We evaluated tactical systems employed during positional attacks and counterattacks by analyzing the last ten-possession ball and actions in offensive sequences during 19 matches from the men's final stages of the 2011 World Championship, the 2012 European Championship, and the 2012 Olympic Games. We employed a two-stage observation model. In the first, qualitative, stage, we built an observation instrument (SOCTO) based on a descriptive data set and in the second, quantitative, stage, we systematically produced a structured data set comprising the following dimensions: score, type of defence, numerical symmetry, zone in which the offensive sequence ended, and outcome. The 19 matches were observed and coded by trained, expert handball coaches using LINCE recording software. This initial descriptive analysis was complemented by a T-pattern analysis. Our findings confirm that at critical moments at the end of elite handball matches, more effective teams (i.e. winning teams) make greater use of the middle zones of the pitch (between the 6- and 9-meter lines) to complete their attack, while losing teams use the zone further away from the goal (9-meter zone).

Palabras clave : Dynamic ecological perspective; offensive efficiency; tactical systems.
