Korfball drills for attack / score


  • In this exercise, you all have a function.
  • The one who has the ball is either the passer or the shooter.
  • If you are the passer, then another one comes for the shot.
  • The third is for catching.
  • So you always fill in one of those positions.
  • The other three take penalty shots

This is an isolated drill to practice dynamic rebounding.

  • Players have to estimate from the movement where the ball will end up and grab it as fast as possible.
  • The ball starts under the basket and is thrown to the player in front of the post.
  • He shoots.
  • The player in front of the post runs to the cap and back and tries to catch the ball within 1 bounce.
  • When the rebounder has succeeded in catching the ball after at most one bounce, he can shoot again.
  • Move the cap further away.
  • Challenge players to catch the ball without a bounce.


  • You will do this task in pairs.
  • Use a basket for each pair.
  • Put 4 hats around the basket in a square about 1.5 meters from the basket. (the basket is in the middle)
  • Stand in between the 2 hats in front of the basket.
  • Shoot to score.
  • The person under the basket names a colour and you tap on that colour.
  • Go back between the 2 hats in front of the basket.
  • If you have scored, you don't have to run to a colour.
  • Do this until someone has scored 5.
  • Players learn not to throw a ball to the passer and then wait for the ball to be caught, but to run after it immediately.
  • The ball is thrown to the basket.
  • Immediately after throwing the ball, run after it to the basket.
  • Goal is to be past the line before the ball is caught.
  • Then get the ball back and shoot.
  • The line makes the assignment concrete.
  • Depending on the team, this may or may not be necessary.
  • Variation 1:
    • The ball starts under the basket, is outplayed and immediately thrown back.
  • Variation 2:
    • Working with an opponent.
    • This opponent does not run with the ball to the basket (because that would not work in an exercise where the breakthrough is the only option), but does ensure that the attacker has to run around something.
  • Plays with 4 players around the post.
  • One player takes the attack. Next player to pass the ball takes the pass.
  • Ball is passed to the forward, forward passes to the player who gave him/her the ball.
  • Player takes a shot.
  • It is important to keep a high ball tempo, to fill in quickly, to fill in the right persons and to throw in the right hand.

Rules explain:

  • The person taking it stands with 1 foot exactly behind the dot and the other foot stands behind the perpendicular line on the center line, from the dot.
  • Everyone stands outside the imaginary line.
  • Attackers stand 2.5 metres from each other.
  • Defenders stand 2.5 metres from the dot, but do not have to.
  • When person with ball moves, defenders may enter circle, attackers only when ball has been touched by person or is outside circle.
  • Persons under the post have their feet on the same side of the post.
  • An attacker or defender may not place his foot between those of the opponent.
  • Defender always stands between attacker and post, except under the post when attacker is against the post.

Everyone stands in base position.

Learn variations:

  • Play ball back to the person who took it out.
  • The person who takes the ball decides by looking at the defenders if he passes to the side or under the basket.
  • Ball is played to player moving away under the basket.


  • 2 posts, under each post there is 1 declarator.
  • In the middle stands an attacker and a defender.
  • Attacker can score on both posts.
  • 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.


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.
