Korfball drills for all skills

  • We're gonna pass as a group.
  • We stand in two rows opposite each other.
  • We'll start as follows:
  • Pass with two hands, catch with two hands.
  • Pass with your good hand, catch with two hands.
  • Pass with your good hand, catch with your good hand.
  • Pass with the lesser hand, catch with two hands.
  • Pass with your lesser hand, catch with your right hand.
  • With the whole team, catch and throw well, if you don't do this and the ball falls to the ground 5 times.

For variation, you can also add special ways of throwing (behind the back, through legs, etc.)

  • You have two attackers on the side in the middle between two baskets.
  • The attacker must try to score with the help of the two players.
  • At an interception, the defender becomes the attacker.
  • When a goal is scored, the attacker gets a bonus and is allowed to keep attacking, only now he has to attack the other basket.
  • When three goals have been scored, the winning attacker is rested and exchanged with a declarer.

In short: practicing various shooting variants in a fun competition form.

  • Organization: per group a basket and a ball, the baskets are preferably (but not necessary) arranged in a circle or rectangle.
  • The number of persons per group is less important (but all groups are about the same size).
  • The first assignment for the groups is: score 10 goals.
  • When you have completed this assignment, the person who scored the last goal runs to the trainer to pick up the next assignment.
  • Which group completed all assignments first?
  • The trainer walks around, encouraging, or correcting.
  • He has a piece of paper with him with a row of assignments on it.
  • When someone comes to pick up the next assignment, first ask which one has just been done (this can vary considerably over time) and then hand out the next assignment.
  • An example list: 10 walk-through balls, 15 penalty shots, 5 8-meter shots, 10 walk-through balls from behind the basket, 5 dodge balls next to the pole, 10 6-meter shots.
  • Everything is possible of course, a lot of momentum is gained if the number of goals to be scored is kept small.
  • 10 walk-through balls
  • 20 small oppertunities
  • 6 remote shots
  • 10 penalty throws
  • 1 backwards

  • Three at a basket
  • Two shooters in front of the basket at shooting distance 4-6 metres, one rebounder under the basket.
  • The shooters take turns shooting, whoever scores first can stay at the basket.
  • The losing shooter changes to the rebounder and the new battle begins.
  • Option: The shooter who scores three goals first may remain standing.
  • Option: In foursomes, you have two teams (one shooter, one rebounder), the losing team switches positions between them.
  • Triplets under the basket
  • No. 1 shoots from under the basket
  • No. 2 catches the ball and shoots from under the basket (there where she/he catches the ball)
  • No. 3 catches the ball .........
  • Nr. 1 catches the ball ......... etc.
  • Whichever team has scored 30 goals first.
  • Option, when the ball falls to the ground 1 point deducted from the goal score, less than 0 is not possible.
  • One shooter.
  • Two catchers.
  • Two balls.
  • The shooter shoots from an easy distance.
  • Because two balls are used, the pace of shooting is high.
  • The goal is not to get sloppy but to keep shooting technically and to "automate" the shot.
  • You can vary with locations or types of shot (short/distance/shot-through) and so on.
  • The trainer calls an exercise with the number of goals
  • Example:
    • 10 shots
    • 10 passes
    • 5 penalty shots
    • 4 free balls
  • The players have to complete these exercises in pairs as quickly as possible.
  • When they are ready they sit down on the designated bench.
    • 1st - no task
    • 2nd - 2 x push-ups
    • 3rd - 4 x push-ups
    • 3rd - 6 x push-ups
    • etc.
  • In this exercise you have two helpers, each with a ball and a shooter.
  • Around the pole there are pawns of different colours.
  • The shooter then makes an action towards that colour and shoots.
  • After X goals, the players change roles.
  • Attention:
    • The player must be turned in to shoot
    • The player must always look at the ball
    • Quickly take the shot
  • For fitness this is a good exercise:
  • The group has to line up and you let them start dribbling slowly.
  • As soon as the trainer blows the whistle, the last one in line should run forward.
  • Do this until everyone has run and then let them finish the circle.
