Korfball drills for passing / attack


Player 1 starts at 7 m in front of the post, player 2 signals 1-2 m in front of the post.

Player 1 takes the walkthrough and moves to 7 m behind the post. Player 2 catches the ball and passes at 1-2 m behind the post.

Player 1 takes a walkthrough ball from behind the post and catches his own ball, player 2 moves to 7 m in front of the post and repeats the exercise.

  • 1 post, 1 ball, 4 hats in a square and 9 players
  • The 4 attackers stand in a square (near the hats) around the post, 
  • the 4 defenders are holding the post with one hand. 
  • The 9th person (the declarer) stands with the ball outside the square of hats. 
  • The declarer brings the ball to one of the attackers, the defender facing the attacker who receives the ball has to run for the hat while the attackers now have to score as fast as possible. 
  • If all goes well, the attackers quickly find the free person because one of the defenders has to run around the hat.


  • 4 vs 4 
  • Men come into a supportive position to let the ladies score.
    • Option 1: Positions under the post are filled by 1 lady and 1 man.
    • Option 2: Positions under the post would be filled by 2 men.
  • Ladies would come out side by side, one for breakthrough and the other shoots.
  • Mission of the defense is to play 1:1 pressure.
  • 1 person under the pole.
  • 2 persons in front of the post, attacker/defender.
  • Ball is played out on the attacker who moves sideways.
  • He receives the ball on the outer hand.
  • The defender steps over and then the attacker takes the ball over and plays in.
  • The attacker dodges and does the same again with the other hand.
  • The attacker then dodges again and tries to shoot.
  • The defender runs along but allows the pass and the shot to happen. 
  • Later on, the defender can choose whether to allow the pass or the shot.
  • It is then up to the attacker to time well.
  • Take care that players do not run into each other.
  • This applies especially to younger teams.
  • You make a box, with an attacker in it, 
  • the attacker must keep moving in the box, while a defender is following. 
  • The other player is standing outside the box. 
  • The attacker starts with the ball in his/her hands and throws it to someone on the side and the person on the side throws it back to the attacker and then throws it back to someone else standing on the side. 
  • The defender tries to take the ball. 
  • When the defender takes the ball, he throws it back you will try again
  • The attacker always tries to run free and the defender tries to intercept the ball
  • Per group: a post and a ball, the posts are preferably (but not absolutely necessary) arranged in a circle or rectangle. 
  • The number of persons per group is less important (but all groups are about the same size).
  • The first task for the groups is to score 10 goals with a through-ball. 
  • When you have finished with that, the person who scored the last goal runs to the trainer to get the next task. Which group performed all the tasks first?
  • The trainer has a piece of paper with tasks on him.
  • When someone comes to get the next task, first ask which task has just been completed (this can vary considerably over time) and then give the next task.
  • List:
    • 5 through-balls, 
    • 5 penalty throws, 
    • Five 3-meter shots, 
    • 5 shots from 3 meters behind the post.


Create a box with an attacker inside.

  • The attacker has to keep moving in the box while a defender is running.
  • Someone always plays the ball.
  • The defender looks at the ball and tries to catch it
  • Every time the attacker catches the ball, someone enters the box.
  • When the defender picks up the ball, he throws it back and tries again
  • The ball is thrown in a circle.
  • A child starts behind the person standing next to the person with the ball.
  • The ball must be overtaken.
  • The rest has to make sure that the ball is thrown over.
  • Place two posts where they usually are during a game.
  • Then place two pilons at the far left and far right on the center line. 
  • Ideally, this exercise is done with 8 people, more is possible, less than 8 doesn't work.
  • At each post or pilon two people are standing, one person under the post starts with the ball (on both sides). 
  • This person throws the ball to someone near the pilon on his right and runs after the ball. 
  • This person then throws the ball to the other post, and the second person near the pilon goes for a through-ball. 
  • Now the ball is under the post again and the round starts over again.
