Korfball drills for running in shot

  • 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.


(Black line: throwing and running after the ball) (Black dotted line: throwing ball) (Red line is running for a through-ball)

  • through-ball-tour
  • You put up four poles in a square, 
  • in the middle of the four poles you put down a pilon. 
  • four children will be passers at the poles and 
  • the rest of the children will stand by the pilon in the middle.
  • First, you can choose that the attackers have to take through-balls at the poles.
  • It doesn't matter which pole, they may run at the same pole a maximum of 2 times in a row. 
  • You can choose this, so they have to run a lot.
  • The children also have to score twice, the person who does this first may definitely switch positions with a passer, the other may switch as well as soon as they score twice.
  • After that you can choose to let the children do free balls, penalty throws, dodge-balls, etc. 
  • 2 people at each post and a ball at both posts. 
  • Throw the ball to the other side and run after it, makes a run.
  • The others who are facing each other do the same. 
  • You make a run with the second person at the same time. The one who passed first throws the ball to the other side and runs for it. That's how roles are switched.
  • The passing is important because there is a fairly large area between the passer and the one who has to run.

  • Pilon 1
    • Tap the ground 6 times and jump up and stretch out all the way. RUN TO POST 1.
  • Post 1
    • then you take a dodgeball at post 1.

      RUN TO PAWN 2.

  • Pilon 2
    • jumping lunge 

      RUN TO POST 2.

  • Post 2
    • take a through-ball at post 2.

      Run to a pilon 

  • Pilon 3
    • 6x push-ups 

      RUN TO POST 3.

  • Post 3
    • short chance behind the post

      RUN TO PAWN 4.

  • Pilon 4
    • 6x squad 

      RUN TO POST 4.

  • Post 4
    • dodge to the other side 

      Run to PAWN 1 

  • This is repeated 5 times 
  • but change every time under the post.

! Form groups of 2 persons per post 

Each group gets three playing cards. The cards are shuffled from the front and the numbers 2 to 5 are removed from the pack. With the three playing cards the groups have to get as close as possible to 31. The value of the numbers and pictures are shown below:

  • Six = six
  • Seven = seven
  • Eight = eight
  • Nine = nine
  • Ten = ten
  • Jack = ten
  • Queen = ten
  • King = ten
  • Ace = eleven 

So nine + jack + queen = 29 points or ace + jack + queen = 31, but you can also have jack + jack + jack = 30.5

Once players have completed a series, they may exchange one of their received cards for a new one, in order to get closer to 31. The trainer will set a timer and says when to stop. The team closest to 31 wins. 


1. through-balls: five goals in a row.

2. through-balls: 5 goals in a row from behind the post.

3. Play through-balls by going for the short chance, 3 times in a row.

! Make groups of 3 and let the players divide themselves in person 1, 2 and 3. After two rounds, change one person.

  • Form groups of 3 at the post. 
  • Person 1 stands 6 meters in front of the post at the pilon, 
  • person 2 will stand 6 meters behind the post at the pilon. 
  • Person 3 stands under the post as a receiver. 
  • Person 1 starts with e.g. taking a though-ball, then goes back to the pilon. 
  • Person 2 takes a through-ball, as person 3 has caught the ball. This is how you perform all the exercises.


  • Through-ball 
  • Dodge ball right 
  • Dodge ball left 
  • Turnaround-ball past the post

Groups of 3 change 1 by 1

Groups of 4 change 2 by 2

  • At pilon 1 
    • 1 time up and down, sideways with small steps between the pilons. 
    • RUN TOWARDS POST 1 for a through-ball.
  • At pilon 2
    • 5 sit-ups. 
    • RUN TOWARDS POST 2 for a dodge ball (minimum 5 meters).
  • At pilon 3
    • again 1 time up and down between the pilons with small steps
    • RUN TOWARDS POST 3 tap the post and take a short chance.
  • If you have 5 points, you can change, only the shot counts for 2. (From post 3 to pilon 1 an interval for seniors with running  at slow pace and sprinting.)

  • Taking through-balls. 
  • Passingis well ahead. 
  • One time the passer does nothing. 
  • The other time it tries to block.

    Attention: The penalty taker stays calm and remembers to fully extend...

  • Red plays the ball to white and runs through.
  • White plays the ball immediately becomes receiver.
  • Red runs to the spot of white and white plays the ball to blue etc,
