Korfball drill: releasing and yielding
Suitable for the following techniques: warming-up
Releasing and yielding
1. Place four pawns in a 7x7m square and let three players play together. One player is the hunter who wants to intercept. Play for 30 seconds, the interception is a point. Release them by either running towards or away from the ball, depending on their position. This depends on the position relative to the hunter, the distance to the ball and the available space to play in (feasible throwing distance and free space). Stop the game to suggest where to run. Teach the ball handler not to throw if the pass is risky (better no pass than a wrong pass). Sometimes a curve ball is needed, sometimes a tight pass. A mock pass can sometimes be useful. Slowing down, speeding up the running pace and changes in direction are the means of free running.
