Korfball drills for all skills


Training on tight passing.

  • 2 players start at about 2 metres from each other You can increase/decrease the distance over time or depending on the variation you do.
  • Passes must be hard!
  • Make sure that you don't throw hard just for the sake of throwing hard, but that you throw hard to get the ball to the team-mate quickly and tightly.
  • Keep reminding them of this constantly.
  • Passes should also be tight.
  • No "piss bows". These passes are slow and easy to intercept.
  • When catching with one hand, make sure you move with the hand and if necessary step with the corresponding leg

Variation 1

  • Player 1 passes with his right hand to player 2's left hand.
  • Player 2 takes over and passes right back to player 1.
  • After one minute both players change their throwing and catching hand.
  • Repeat this at larger and larger distances.

Variant 2

  • Player 1 passes right to player 2's left hand.
  • Player 2 passes back with his left hand to the right hand of player 1.
  • After one minute both players change their throwing and catching hand.
  • Repeat this at larger and larger distances.

Variant 3 - with movement left-right

  • Player 1 has the ball.
  • Player 2 moves to the left or right.
  • Player 1 passes to outside hand of player 2.
  • Player 2 passes back with his outside hand.
  • After one minute, the players change positions. (Player 1 moves left/right. Player 2 passes to).
  • Repeat at increasing distances.

Variant 4 - deep line

  • Player 1 has the ball.
  • Player 2 moves towards player 1 from the side.
  • Player 2 puts his foot across and runs a deep line away from player 1.
  • Player 1 passes with a small arc (but still tight!) to player 2.
  • After one minute the players change function (player 1 starts running, player 2 passes to him).

  • Player 1 starts at 6 meters from the basket.
  • Player 2 stands between player 1 and the basket at 2 metres from player 1.
  • Player 1 starts running for a through ball.
  • Player 2 has to prevent the through ball.
  • So player 2 must bend his knees to be able to move immediately.
  • Also, the player must move immediately when player 1 starts to run.
  • If this is not done, you are too late and you will never catch up with player 1.
  • The goal is to prevent the walkthrough ball.
  • Play 2:2, which pair scores 5 goals first. (We do this 2 times against another pair).
  • 4:4, where in a small space 10x must be played over, without the ball being intercepted or dropped.
  • If this exercise is too easy, you can play the ball within 4 seconds.
  • The most important thing in this exercise is that the players run free, complete in time and keep an overview.
  • This is an exercise in which you can increase the understanding of running free
  • Especially if you speed up the game. (which team will score first 3 times)
  • You stand on a large field.
  • You make 2 teams 1 team stands left behind the line and the other team right behind the line.
  • 1 big ball, lies in the middle of the field.
  • Each player has a ball.
  • They try to hit the ball from behind the line and roll it over the line of the opponent.
  • After throwing you pick up your own ball and stand behind your own line again, and you start aiming at the big ball again, until the ball has crossed someone's line.
  • Place 5 hats around the basket.
  • At 5 different distances from the basket. (max 6 meters, minimal 2 meters)
  • Work with pairs.
  • From each hat you may shoot twice.
  • You always shoot a whole round.
  • Which pair is first to score twice from all hats?
  • You make a round, until you have scored from all spots.
  • You shoot one round and catch the next round.
  • One person shoots from in front of the basket.
  • One person stands at the back left of a pawn, the other at the back right of a pawn, about 5 meters from the post and between each other.
  • The one in front of the basket shoots.
  • When the ball is loose, the two people in front of the basket start the rebound duel.
  • When they have won the rebound 3 times, they may shoot.
  • 3 or 4 players.
  • On 8 meters opposite each other.
  • Player 1 of the pair throws the ball to the other side and runs after it.
    • Throw over and run after it.
    • Player gets the ball back.
    • Player swings out of the way and gets the ball back underhand. (all with 1 hand).
    • Player makes half circle jump and plays ball back; player runs to the other side.
    • Player gets ball from number 2 from behind and plays ball to the other side.
  • 3 or 4 teams.
  • Attacker, attacker, defender.
  • Attacker practices different types of shots but now with pressure from a defender.
  • Change after 10 goal attempts. (Each player keeps track of his shot percentage).
    • Attacker (A) shoots from 6 meter on the move.
    • Defender (V) gives light pressure.
    • A makes virtual shot move and takes through ball.
    • V also obstructs pass ball but has to give chance.
    • A has choice between shot and through ball.
    • V cooperates by making a clear choice.
    • If 3 but fumbles after shot or walkthrough ball another chance under the post.
  • Make 2 or 3 teams.
  • Each team gets 10 pawns.
  • The players shoot from their own chosen distances and put a pawn on each spot where they have scored.
  • When one team has finished, the teams change baskets. (Even if the other baskets have not yet placed all 10 pawns).
  • Now the players shoot the pawns away from the other team by scoring from that distance.
  • Winner who shoots away the pawns first.
