Korfball drills for all skills

  • Score with a pair of 20 distance shots from the post.
  • The shooter shoots 5 times and is always moving on all sides of the post.
  • After 5 shots, the players switch functions.
  • The catcher tries to catch the ball before it hits the ground.
  • That means you have to judge where the ball is coming from to be in time to catch it.
  • Play the ball deep into the box.
  • The one who plays the ball takes the catch.
  • The second lady passes the ball on to one of the other players and uses the block near the post to pass.
  • The player with the ball plays the ball in and the other lady makes at that moment a breakthrough or dodge and shoots.
  • The one who catches the ball puts out to the fans again.
  • She then goes to the post again to catch.
  • If the position is taken and it is not possible to shoot, the next passer comes in to pass.
  • After receiving the ball, she passes it out, etc.
  • We practice this first without an opponent and then with an opponent.

Score 100 goals by 3.

  • Pass balls.
    • 10 overhead.
    • 10 with the left.
    • 10 with the right.
    • 10 underhand.
  • 25 penalty shots.
  • 15 dodge balls. (max 2 shots in a row, both left and right evasive).
  • 20 distance shots from a small movement. (max 2x in a row shooting)

We use the volleyball court as a space with running lines.

  • Sprint from the back line to the 3 meter line of the back box.
  • Sprint back to the first 3 meter line.
  • Sprint to the back line on the other side.
  • Sprint from the back line to the 3 meter line of the back box.
  • Sprint back to the first 3 meter line.
  • Sprint to the first starting spot.

We do this 3 times


  • Attack:
    • Within the allotted time, choose a correct position for penalty throw or free throw.
  • Defense:
    • Position yourself properly in front of your attacker for penalty throw or free throw within the set time.


  • Leader calls if a free throw or a penalty throw is given and who will take it.
  • Attackers and defenders line up within the time limit.
  • Mistakes will be discussed positively.
  • For higher teams, only place a pawn in front of the penalty spot.

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.
