Korfball drills for passing / attack

  • Player 1 throws the ball to the oncoming player 2 who is not running straight into the ball,
  • but diagonally to the right of the player.
  • Player 1 runs to the other side, receives the ball halfway from player 2 and throws it to the pilon he came from, player 4, and connects behind the other pilon where only player 3 is.
  • Player 2 connects behind player 4.
  • Player 1 must make a quarter turn to be able to throw the ball from player 2 to player 4, this turn must be done airborne.
  • Arrange a square with a distance of about 10 meters.
  • For larger groups, pentagons can be used.
  • Player 1 throws the ball to player 2, runs after the ball and gets the ball back to player 2.
  • Player 1 throws the ball to player 3, runs after the ball, receives and throws it to player 4.
  • Arrivin at player 4, player 1 should throw a long diagonal ball to player 2 and player 1 can take up his original position.
  • Player 2 continues the exercise.
  • This exercise should be done twice each and then be done in the other direction.
  • Who is first to finish the exercise?
  • Watch out for uneven distances.
  • Shooter stand in front of the post, with a defender
  • Shooter stand in front of the post, with a defender
  • The ball is thrown in from under the post, after which the ball is handled from the outer to the inner hand for a through-ball.
  • The pilon is now placed 6 metres in front of the post, a passer with ball stands under the post.
  • A runner and defender stand at the pilon.
  • The runner goes back and forth around the pilon and starts counting how many times he or she can double the ball with the passer, without it being intercepted by the defender (everything must be done with one hand).
  • After four doubles, the through-ball is made, the defender only gives pressure and allows the through-ball if the defender passes over the right leg.
  • 4 posts in a square, pairs of two of the same sex at a post.
  • The posts are 16 meters apart lengthwise.
  • The pairs stand in front of each other at a post.
  • There is 1 runner and 1 passer per pair. The runners runs in the direction of the post on the other side, when the runners reach the middle, they turn around each other, in order to score in their own post: (changing function after an exercise)
  • A player stand with the ball well behind post
  • Attacker with defender in front of the post
  • Attacker must always run towards the line of pilons after a shot
  • Then wait until the passer throws the ball so he can run backwards and shoot
  • Switch after a goal
    • Pressure: 
      • Defender runs slowly with the attacker
      • Defender 75%
      • Defender full pressure


  • Shooter with a defender in front of the post. 
  • Passer with defender behind the post. 
  • Passer throws long ball at shooter and takes rebound.
  • Shooter may pass an x on defender rebounder
  • When defender jumps in, rebounder steps out for a breakthrough.

1 post 4 squares around it with pilons

  • Each square has 1 attacker and 2 or more defenders. 
  • Passing and scoring after a diagonal pass. 
  • Interception means substitution 
  • 4 versus 4 
  • Men come into a supportive position to let the men 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 ladies.
    • Option 3: Play in 3:1 ratio
  • Ladies would play side by side, one for the breakthrough and the other for the shot.
  • Work in groups of 3
  • Players throw the ball at each other
  • Player A throws to player B. 
  • And player A runs deep
  • Player A shoots the ball into the post
    • Make sure you run straight to the post. 
    • Don't stop running too early and the pass should be good.
  • You can extend the exercise further by passing the ball back to player B who takes a through-ball instead of taking a shot
