Korfball drills for attack / score

  • Two pairs near a basket.
  • There is an attacking pair and a defending pair.
  • Rules: in a turn (time between start and interception), it is not allowed to double with the attacker (the trainer) under the basket.
  • The pair will change positions after 3 interceptions.
    Which pair scores the most in 2 minutes? (trainers keep track of time).
  • Have all pairs play against each other (so three games if there are eight of you).
  • The players walk from under one basket to the next basket, changing their roles (shooter/forward) when they miss a walkthrough or a shot.
  • We will see who has scored the following goals first
    :* 10 walk-throughs * 6 dodge balls*
    8 walk-throughs * 4 dodge balls

  • The baskets in a square.
  • Pairs at a post.
  • Together they score on their pole
    :* 4 penalty shots*
    4 pull-away balls (from under the basket to the front)
    * 4 neighbourhood balls*
    4 shots from 5 metres

  • Repeat this 3 times on the same pole.
  • The first time, the trainer keeps track of time.
  • The second time, the players must finish faster than the first time, otherwise they will have to sprint around the poles for three rounds.
  • The same is true for the third lap with respect to the second lap, unless the first lap was faster than the second.
  • In that case, the time of the first lap must be used as a guideline for the third lap.
  • Alternating dodge to the left and right.
  • Whoever gets 5 in first.
  • Then again but then who has the first 8 in.
  • Stand at your favorite distance.
  • Take turns moving left and right.
  • You get the ball and shoot.
  • Try to score as many goals as possible in one minute.
  • Stand 4 feet in front of the basket and shoot for one minute.
  • Count the number of goals per person.
  • Then change persons.

In short:

  • 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 to the left and 1 to the 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 as quickly as possible from each cone.
  • After that, they will switch functions.
  • Which pair will be quickest to complete their 'journey around the world'?


  • The distances can be made larger or smaller. Or: score 2 goals with each pawn.


  • Instead of shooting from standstill, you can also shoot from movement, or simply: take evasive balls.
  • Filling in positions. In the 3v3 you are constantly filling in the function shot, pass or rebound.
  • You can vary endlessly in this exercise.
  • Do you play on the breakthrough, on the dodge, on the distance shot or do you look for it in small chances around the basket?
  • The assignment can be: score a distance shot, a walk-through ball and a small chance.
  • The defenders will change their tactics when one of the shots is ready.

3 against 2

  • Game over 2 baskets. Play continues until first pair has 3 goals.
  • All other pairs stop immediately.
  • In case of a tie, the first team to score a tie wins.
  • At 0-0 stop.
  • Winners to the left losers to the right.
