Korfball drills for condition / strength


  • This exercise is designed to let the players choose for themselves what they want to improve on.
  • Which (improvement) goal, which they have set for themselves, do they want to improve here.
  • As a trainer you can steer this by guiding the choice.
  • For example: the exercise must have something to do with passing/shooting/attacking/looking etc.
  • To shoot cleanly and build up fitness
  • Which pair has the first 5 up and down runs?
  • You start by sprinting up and down 10 times
  • Then you shoot 10 times and count how many times you score
  • If you have scored 5 or more times (half of your number of sprints up and down), you may sprint up and down once less, so 9 times.
  • Then you start shooting again and count how many times you score. If this is half or more than the number of times you sprinted up and down, you may subtract another time.

Reaction exercises
(per pair/triple set out a rectangle of 2m by 1m with four different coloured hats)
  • One player stands in the box, the other(s) look on.
  • Put two lines on each side of the rectangle.
  • The players in the box move their feet on the spot. (dribbling)
  • The players are constantly given commands that they must respond to.
  • Each time you mention a color of a hat, they must touch that hat with their hand.
  • The command line means that they have to sprint to one of the side lines. At that moment the other member of the pair/trio enters the box and does the tasks.
  • Everyone does this 10 times.
Assignments can include jump, squat, touch heel, touch knee, hop right, hop left, sit, plank, push-up etc. You alternate these assignments with a colour of a hat
