Korfball drills for all skills

  • Basic is the same as dynamic attack part 1,
  • however, after the rebounder has caught the first shot, he/she will immediately look for a free team-mate at the back of the game.
  • in this way, 'the second chance' is created.
  • rebounder stays standing and catches the ball again, plays it off and moves away from the post himself.
  • It is important in this exercise that all four players are on the move,
  • When the first player takes a shot, the player at the back of the net must already be freeing themselves and getting ready to take the second shot.
  • exercises dynamic attack 1 and 2 are performed with defenders,
  • attackers have to be good at moving and getting free of their opponent.
  • If the first shot does not work, a deep line can be run.
  • It is important that the first pass after the rebounder has position should bepassed for a shot.
  • If the team-mates are not free enough, the ball will not be passed.
  • Per pair at a basket.
  • Start with 2 distance shots and score pp then get an assignment card from the trainer.
  • Add up the points on the cards.
  • player 1 and 2 stand opposite each other at about 3 meters.
  • player 3 stands about 3 meters next to player 2.
  • player 1 throws the ball with one hand to player 2.
  • Player 3 must try to get the ball out of the way.
  • Now it is important to throw well and on time otherwise player 3/defender can take the ball.
  • Pairs,
  • running around the circle of pawns.
  • When you hear a 'YES' you have to pass the ball as fast as possible.
  • After scoring three times you may switch with the attacker.
  • After that with pulling away under the pole of the declarer,
  • If you score as declarer you may remain standing,
  • Otherwise you change with the taker.

In brief:

  • Shooting exercise (-game) in which shots are made from different sides of the basket.


  • Per basket one pair with one ball, or in case of lack of sufficient baskets 2 pairs with one ball each.
  • At each basket four pawns or other markers:
    • 1 in front of and 1 behind the basket and
    • 1 left and 1 right of the basket,
    • always at about 6 metres distance.
  • One of each pair starts under the basket.
  • The other one's task is to score a goal from every pawn as quickly as possible.
  • After that, they will switch functions.
  • Which pair will be quickest to finish 'the trip around the world'?
  • The penalty throw can be practiced immediately in its entirety.
  • The pressure of having to score at the penalty box can be imitated in different ways:
    • Scoring ten in a row, counting again if missed.
    • Which group will have the highest number of penalty throw, score 2 points and miss 1 point,
    • who is the first to have 20 points,
    • which player scores the most in 10 attempts.
  • This exercise is all about technique.
  • Also in the game only the technique is decisive whether or not a player scores.
  • There is no time factor or defender.
  • Set up the exercises so that it is not the time that is important, but the efficiency.
  • 6 players, each under one post and the remaining players are going to run on/out/take short chances.
  • First to the middle where there is a cap and then to a pole that is free.
  • 2 players at 1 pole.
  • Player 1 throws to player 2 comes next to him and shoots.
  • Player 2 runs to the pole to catch the ball at once throws out to player 1 comes alongside and shoots. Etc.
