Korfball drills for all skills

  • 3 persons under the pole.
  • 1 person under the post + 2 persons in front and behind the post.
  • Ball goes from under to the person in front, who passes it back to the person in front.
  • The 3rd person is doing an in-out move and gets the ball from the indicated 3rd person shoot.
  • Signaller catches the ball and passes it back to the person who just shot and so on.
  • 6 scoring with 2 is exchanging with the person under the post.
  • 2 pawns/covers for the pole at about 8 meters.
  • The pawns are next to each other with about 2/3 meters between them.
  • The goal is to run back and forth between the pawns and to tap the pawns.
  • After x number of times the person who was between the pawns has to make a pass.

Basic rules:

  • The attackers' first shot is 'free'.
  • It may not be defended.
  • Take the first shot, each attacker tries to stay in possession of the ball.
  • If the defender takes the ball after the first shot, the attempt is over.
  • If the defender does not take the ball after the first shot, the defender must try to prevent the second shot as soon as possible.
  • If the attackers get the ball after the first shot, they may play freely.
  • The attacker has, after the first shot, two choices: shoot himself or get the assist
  • The exercise lasts a maximum of 10 seconds.
  • Forces to act fast.


  • Try to stay in possession of the ball after the first free shot by one of the attackers.
  • If you don't, and the defender grabs the ball, your attempt is over.
  • If you do, you can play freely (3-1 or 2-2).
  • If a goal is scored or the ball is intercepted, the attempt is over.
  • After each attempt, the attackers start at a pawn and another attacker takes the first shot.
  • After 3 attempts, it is changeover time.

Forms of play:

  • 2-2, then two of the attackers are always defenders and everyone starts at their own pawn.
  • 4-2 or 4-3, next to the attacker who makes the shot, no one is a defender.
  • After the shot, anyone can be defended.
  • 4-4: There is one defender and one attacker on each teammate.

  • By throwing over the ball the taggers can tap the other players.
  • If you are tagged or left outside the box, you are out and you can join again if you have scored a goal.
  • At step 1 the runners are not allowed to touch the ball of the hunters.


  • When players are out, they belong to the tag team instead of being out of the box.
  • This is only allowed after they have scored.
  • More or less players and therefore more or less balls.



  • Try to get the ball as fast as possible and throw someone off.
  • If you are thrown off yourself, try to come back as soon as possible by scoring in the basket outside the field.

Rules of the game:

  • If you throw the ball on the body, the player is out:
    • Via the ground or a teammate is not a throw-off.
  • When you're out, you score in one of the baskets that are outside the field.
  • Scored? Put the ball back where it came from and back in the field.
  • Count the number of players that are thrown off within a certain time.
