Korfball drill: working in a square
Suitable for the following techniques: passing
Working in a square
Inshort: simple catching and throwing exercise with a lot of running for foursome.
Organisation: The four players form a square (distance about 10 metres, depending on the level), one of the four has a ball. If there are people left over, one or more foursomes can be formed and stand in a pentagon. Almost all parts of the exercise described above can be practised in this form of organisation.
The procedure is as follows:
Player A throws the ball to B, runs after him, gets the ball back and throws to C. He gets the ball back, plays to D, gets the ball back and throws to B over quite a distance, and finally takes his original place again. In the meantime B has already started his round. When everyone in every foursome has had 3 turns the next exercise comes.
- The players walk the other way.
- The attackers move slightly to and fro.
- Which foursome will finish fastest? (everyone has to walk three times).
- Make sure that the distances do not suddenly get smaller!
