Korfball drills for all skills


  • Finish with a game 3 against 3 on 1 basket.
  • At interception play 3 passes and then change function.
  • Team of 7 plays with a fixed rebounder.
    • He/she is not allowed to pass unless this is immediately after a shot opportunity.
    • He/she is also not allowed to be involved in the game.
    • So you have to free 3 against 3.

  • Put poles opposite each other at 20m from each other. (possibly a pylon in the middle)
  • Per pole you have two or three players.
  • One lady starts from each pole and walks to the middle, where she turns around each other and passes to her own basket.
  • The girls who pass on to the other side of the centre run straight on to the centre and circle each other to make a through ball.
  • With threes, it is also possible to have a dodge ball or distance shot.
  • The running distances are important for the endurance condition.
  1. score 20 overhead balls per team.
  2. score 20 dodge balls under the waist per pile
  3. score 10 dodge balls left per pile
  4. score 10 dodge balls per pole right swerve
  5. score 20 distance shots per pile which are marked between 7-5m


Per 5 works, other players take penalty throws:
1 declarer with ball to basket, 2 attackers with one defender each

  1. Both attackers may use the (regular) attacker to get free in a 1-1 situation.
    1. Each score is 1p.
    2. Swap after 3 chances.
  2. Both attackers may use either the forward to get free, or they may get the assist from the space of the other attacker (but without the latter playing from a support position).
    1. Scoring after a pass from the basket is 1 point, scoring after an assist from the other attacker is 2 points.
    2. Change again after 3 chances.
  3. The same, but the attacker who plays the ball may not get it back directly. Thus, you have to make the choice to pass.
    1. 1 point again after a pass, 2 points if the assist is from the front court.
    2. Change again after 3 chances.

  • You shoot at 6 metres in front of the basket.
  • The other one catches it.
  • The ball is played out again and the catcher runs away from the basket.
  • He gets the ball back and shoots at about 6 meters.
  • The person who catches the ball, plays off, runs away and gets the ball back and shoots.
  • Which pair will be first to score 10 times?
The focus in this exercise is on taking the second chance.
When the shooter has taken a shot from the front court, it will be caught by the rebounder and passed back to the shooter as quickly as possible.
The shooter will have to anticipate the second ball and adjust the running line.

  1. The players stand with 2 (or 3) at a basket. One is the archer, the other the rebounder.
  2. The shooter starts in front of the post, receives the ball and shoots.
  3. The shooter keeps moving after the shot.
  4. The player under the post catches the ball, and passes it to the shooter as fast as possible.
  5. The shooter takes the second chance. Look closely at where you are running to get free.
  6. After the second ball is taken, the game starts again in the starting position.
  7. Change is made after 3 sessions of 2 shots, basket of 3 rotates continuously, with 3rd player on top.

  • First shot = 1p
  • 2nd chance = 1p, if the rebound of the first shot is caught without bouncing the ball, you get 2 points for scoring the 2nd chance.

In pairs or 3 at a basket:
  • Shooter about 6 meters from the basket
  • Attacker with ball under
  • Shooter gets the ball and makes a shot, handler catches it
  • Shooter moves and receives the ball
  • Attacker moves away and receives the ball
  • Take shot, bring rebound out of space

  • Put two lines on each side of the rectangle.
  • The players in the box move their feet on the spot. (dribbling)
  • The players are constantly given commands that they must respond to.
  • Each time you mention a color of a hat, they must touch that hat with their hand.
  • The command line means that they have to sprint to one of the side lines. At that moment the other member of the pair/trio enters the box and does the tasks.
  • Everyone does this 10 times.
