Korfball drills for all skills


simple running exercises for warming up, in which concentration and reaction also play an important role. Organisation: Pairs in an empty, marked out space.

Walk behind each other in a steady pace, criss-crossing the whole room. Number 2 follows every movement of number 1 as fast as possible, keeping about 1 metre distance. After a while change.

As a., but now the front runner tries to lose the back runner by sudden feints and/or tempo changes.

As a., but now other movements are also allowed: cross passes, jumping, lying down quickly and getting up again, etc.


  • Perform the same exercises with music
  • Do the same exercises in groups of three or four. In this form, 'comical' situations will certainly occur now and then. It doesn't have much to do with korfball then.
  • No more pairs: everyone walks freely through each other. The players walk towards each other, feint and then pass to the left.
  • Like d., but now passing on the right
  • Like d., but now they turn around each other and walk back.
  • Special exercise for getting used to the hall: walk criss-cross through the whole hall, but not touching any line. Especially in halls with a lot of lines on the floor this is a good and fun exercise to get the 'contact with the hall' back in the legs.
  • Like g., but now keep walking on the lines.

In short:
start and sprint game.

Pairs on either side of a line in the middle of the hall. The numbers 1, standing slightly left of the line, are the rats and the numbers 2, standing half a metre right of the line, are the ravens. Between the rats and the ravens there is a space of 1 meter. The trainer now calls continuously 'rats' or 'ravens' in random order. When 'rats' is called, the rats run as fast as possible to their side of the room. The ravens must then try to tap the rats.

* Who has their personal opponent tapped the most times?


To keep it exciting, roll the 'r' for a good long time or make it a short story.


With 3 players at the basket, 1 attacker with the ball under the basket and 2 players who shoot the ball in motion (minimum distance 5 meters
). The attacker who is first to score 3 goals may remain in front of the basket and the attacker who has lost the game must take the place of the attacker.

1 pole, 1 ball, 4 hats in a square and 9 playersThe
4 attackers stand in a square (near the hats) around the basket, the 4 defenders hold the pole with one hand. The 9th person (the declarer) stands with the ball outside the square of the hats. The attacker passes the ball to one of the attackers, the defender who stands opposite the attacker who receives the ball must run around the hat and the attackers must now score as quickly as possible. If all goes well, the attackers quickly find the person who is free, as one of the defenders has to run around the hat-trick


You make a square, in it stands an attacker, the attacker must keep moving in the square while a defender walks by. One person always plays the ball. The defender looks at the ball and tries to catch it. Every time the attacker catches the ball, someone else runs into the box. When the defender catches the ball, he throws it back and you try again.

catch-and-throw-12 teams. Per pair 1 ball and 1 pawn. Player A stays on his spot. Player B starts with the pawn, which is about 10 meters away. Player B runs to player A. Player A throws (with 1 hand) the ball to player B. Player B keeps running until he has caught the ball and then stops. B throws the ball back and runs to the pawn to start the exercise again. after 10x change.



There are all pawns 3x3. Each group stands behind a pawn 10 metres away. Each group gets its own colour caps. Then the first group runs to the caps that are further away and tries to get 3 in a row as fast as possible. At the sign of the trainer the next person can put down a cap.

We divide the team in two equal groups and the two groups stand each behind a pylon.
The two groups stand behind a pylon and at a distance of 10 metres they make a shot from the pylon which is 2 metres away from the pylon. When the children have scored, they may continue to the pylon behind the post at a distance of 5 metres.
Finally they run 3 circles around the pylon and run back to their line.
Then the next one in line may start.

Instead of a shot, they make a through ball.
Instead of making a shot from 2 metres, they make a shot from 4 metres.


The whole group walks a circle around the yellow lines in the middle in a line. When the trainer calls 'yes', the person at the back of the line starts running as fast as possible. The children do this by pulling a sprint.

The children run after each other around the yellow lines in a line. The person at the front of the line can do whatever he wants for example: heels buttocks, sprints, lifts his knees etc. Whenthe trainer calls 'yes' the person at the back of the line starts to run as fast as possible and can choose what he wants to do. It must be something other than normal running/jogging, it may be sprinting.
