The purpose of our study was to assess the jump and sprint capabilities of young handball players on a program or continuum based on Sandball. This experimental study involved 30 students, including 15 girls and 15 boys. The experimental phase consisted of measuring anthropometric parameters (age, height and weight) and the countermovement jump tests (vertical jump), horizontal relaxation with momentum, repeated sprint test (TSR), flexion-extension test of the upper limbs were been measured. The results obtained show a significant difference between the vertical jump performance before and after in girls (p = 0.035), no significant difference between the number of push-ups and the time performed before and after in girls (p = 0.271 and p = 0.116). However, a significant difference was observed between the number of push-ups in boys (p = 0.002) also on the T30m in girls (p = 0.167), and in boys (p = 0.030), as well as on the T15m in boys (p = 0.031). Furthermore, no significant difference was observed in the number of push-ups and the time performed in girls (p = 0.271 and p = 0.116), however a significant difference was noted in boys (p = 0.002). In conclusion, the Sandball-based continuum improves sprint and jump performance. This study highlights the interest of Sandball in the process of improving the counterattack. Indeed, this program allows young players to have good gestural velocity in the progression of the ball.
