Korfball drills for all skills

  • The ball is thrown in a circle.
  • A child starts behind the person standing next to the person with the ball.
  • The ball must be overtaken.
  • The rest has to make sure that the ball is thrown over.
  • Place two posts where they usually are during a game.
  • Then place two pilons at the far left and far right on the center line. 
  • Ideally, this exercise is done with 8 people, more is possible, less than 8 doesn't work.
  • At each post or pilon two people are standing, one person under the post starts with the ball (on both sides). 
  • This person throws the ball to someone near the pilon on his right and runs after the ball. 
  • This person then throws the ball to the other post, and the second person near the pilon goes for a through-ball. 
  • Now the ball is under the post again and the round starts over again.


(Black line: throwing and running after the ball) (Black dotted line: throwing ball) (Red line is running for a through-ball)

  • through-ball-tour
  • 4 posts and 4 groups, 
  • 2 Balls: aim to think how to run freely when building up. 
  • 4 versus 4 with 2 posts: 
    • trying to throw a long ball when building up by running deep, 
    • running free through tempo change.
  • Pause a few times to discuss running free and tempo changes;
    • learning to find an angle, 
    • or when the angle is fixed, the long diagonal throw.
  • 2 posts and 3 groups, 
    • defending party intercepts,
    • builds up and goes on to attack the box; 
    • Build up starts in defence!
  • You put up four poles in a square, 
  • in the middle of the four poles you put down a pilon. 
  • four children will be passers at the poles and 
  • the rest of the children will stand by the pilon in the middle.
  • First, you can choose that the attackers have to take through-balls at the poles.
  • It doesn't matter which pole, they may run at the same pole a maximum of 2 times in a row. 
  • You can choose this, so they have to run a lot.
  • The children also have to score twice, the person who does this first may definitely switch positions with a passer, the other may switch as well as soon as they score twice.
  • After that you can choose to let the children do free balls, penalty throws, dodge-balls, etc. 


  • Put pilons about 6 meters apart. Divide the group into 2. 
  • In the case of five, one group of 3 and a group of two. 
  • The goal is to keep the ball in the middle between the pilons at all times. 
  • As soon as a player receives the ball, the player must be at the centre of the other side. 
  • After you have passed the ball, you join the back row on the opposite side. 
  • NB: Nobody stands still and tries to see what happens at all times
    • Do not arrive too early or too late. 
    • Throwing while moving. 
    • After five minutes switch side (left hand).
  • Make pairs, at each post a pair.
  • We are now going to use the posts lengthwise, namely one player of the pair attacks the post opposite to him or her.
  • One player of the opposite post does the same.
  • How does this work?
  • Of each pair there is a number 1 and a number 2.
  • Number 1 is going to defend his post for a minute and a half against the other number 1 of the post opposite to him.
  • When the number 1 of a post has had a chance, the other number will attack and so there will be a change of function (and of post, because everyone is defending his own post).
  • So there is always a change of function if the attacker has lost the ball.
  • As a player, you are attacking as well as defending for a minute and a half

At a distance of +/- 15 meters from each other, make two compartments with 4 pilons of 1.5 x 1.5 meters.

Make two teams with an equal number of players. 

  • Each team has its own compartment.
  • The other team tries to conquer the other team's square.
  • This happens when 1 striker is standing in the opponent's square and the ball is played by a team-mate.
  • They get 1 point. No other players are allowed in the box.
  • When the defence intercepts the ball, they may immediately start the attack on the opponent's square.


  • on time
  • with points
  • of both teams 1 player is allowed in the box
  • no limit on the number of defendants in box
  • no limit on the number of attackers in box
  • customize size of box
  • distance between boxes

  • Put 3 pilons in a triangle. 
  • At pilon 1 and 3, there's one person. 
  • Person at pilon 1 has a ball, person at pilon 3 runs to pilon 2 and runs back. 
  • Person at pilon 1 throws the ball when he or she arrives at the pilon, then the person at pilon 1 runs to pilon 2 and back again and gets the ball when he/she arrives at pilon 1 again. And so on.
  • 2 people at each post and a ball at both posts. 
  • Throw the ball to the other side and run after it, makes a run.
  • The others who are facing each other do the same. 
  • You make a run with the second person at the same time. The one who passed first throws the ball to the other side and runs for it. That's how roles are switched.
  • The passing is important because there is a fairly large area between the passer and the one who has to run.
