This study aimed to quantify the main sporting gestures performed by professional handball players. For the quantitative measurements of the main movements performed by each player, video recordings were made for all games. It was recorded a mean of 1.288.0 (SD = 190.7) sporting gestures per game. The central ship-owners did a mean of 375.0 (SD = 83.7) gestures and the pivot position perform 63.3 (SD = 21.2) gestures per game. The receptions and passes were the main sporting gestures performed by the handball team. The central ship-owner was the position that performed more gestures, followed by the left and right ship-owner. The pivot was the position that performed less sporting gestures by the handball team evaluated.

Keywords : Athletes; athletic performance; motion; video recording.
