# Korfball drills for all skills

- Shelf
- Bridge
- Superman
- Sit up with ball
- Catch on 1 leg

- The exercise is done in pairs.
- For every pair there is a basket in a circle/square.
- With a group of 16 players, there are 8 baskets in a square/round/oval formation.
- Each pair has 1 ball. The aim of the game is to score twice on all the baskets.
- Each pair starts at its own basket. Shooter 1 is going to score a goal, as soon as a goal is scored, the players change and shooter 2 starts shooting.
- When 2 has also scored, the pair moves to the basket, regardless of whether the pair is still playing there or not.
- At this basket, shooter 1 starts again and tries to score a goal as fast as possible.
- As soon as he or she scores, the players swap places and shooter 2 starts shooting again.
- When he has also scored, the pair moves on to the next basket.
- The exercise continues until each pair has returned to its own basket.
- It may happen that three pairs are working at a basket and two baskets are empty.
- This is not a problem, the players just have to be careful with where they throw.

#### Ad

A pole with a hat behind it about 2 meters away.

- There are two people standing near the hat,
- an attacker and a defender.

- Under the basket is a declarer and in front of the basket is a shooter.
- The attacker has to make sure that he blocks the defender from the hat.
- The archer keeps on shooting (indicated by the declarer) until the defender catches the ball, then the ball is exchanged.

**Set-up:**

Three poles in a triangle from each other. On the left of each pole a hat and in the middle a hat. Under each pole one person with ball. The rest by the hat in the middle.

**Exercise:**

Run from the middle to a hat. There you receive the ball from the passer, play it back and make a run through. The person who runs through stands under the post and the bitch goes to the middle to turn.

- There are all groups of 2 made.
- The groups get per pair a ball and have to throw the ball over.
- When they do this, they have to run around the pole, so they are not allowed to pass the ball while standing still.
- Running doesn't matter in this exercise.
- Running is jogging, and they have to keep an eye on their partner.

- The group is divided over the poles in groups of 2 or 3.
- Practicing shooting
- Which group at a distance of 5 meter will be first to score 6 times.

- Practicing with dunkers
- Which group will be first to score 12 passes.

- Suicide runs are short sprints meant to improve speed, strength and agility.
- To do a suicide run on a field you lay down four markers.
- See for yourself which distances you use/need.
- Then you tap the first line, run back to the starting point, tap the second line, run back to the starting point etc.
- When you have tapped all four lines you will have a korfball pole at the end of the suicide run where you have to take a penalty throw.
- You can also choose something else.
- Oo you can also choose to run them backwards.
- Divide the people into three groups.

- the chaos game is fun for younger children, but can also be played with older children.

- At the Chaos game the goal is that each child has a ball, and that there are 3 or 4 poles (also depending on the number of players)
- in a row.
- Each player starts at the same pole,
- There is a countdown and then they all start shooting,
- If they score, they may move one pole,
- If they don't score, they remain at the post until they have scored.
- You can decide beforehand whether they should pass each pole 1, 2 or 3 times, depending on the level.
- Variation: you can use cones to mark a circle outside which the players have to shoot,
- They are only allowed to enter the circle to catch the ball.
- The materials below are for 4 people (hat = pawn)
