# Korfball drills

Roll a (large) die:

- 1 = 10 walk-through balls
- 2 = 15 push ups
- 3 = 10 distance shots in front (change every two shots)
- 4 = 15 sit-ups
- 5 = 20 short odds
- 6 = 10 burpees

Teams of 2 to 3.

- The player faces the basket.
- Player jumps sideways over the two hurdles and runs sideways to the hat.
- Gets played the ball and takes a shot;
- The player jumps forward over the two hurdles and sprints to the hat
- Then the player sprints to the post and then takes a through ball
- We score 20x with the hats on the right side and 20x with the hats on the left side.

**2-minute walk-through ball and shot take.**

- In threes or twos to the basket.
- There is constantly 1 person working for 2 minutes, ideally 2 people for rebounding.
- There are pawns/slip dots in a square around the basket, about 4 meters apart.
- Player 1 starts at the first pawn, walks in for a through ball.
- Then walks out to the second pawn and takes the shot there.
- Goes to the third pawn and makes another through ball there etc.
- After 1 minute it is the next player's turn.

**For 2 minutes take away balls**.

- You have 2 attackers with a ball each.
- After 2 minutes 1 of the others becomes shooter.
- Who of the 3 team is the best shooter.
- Possibly a 2nd turn to improve.

- Players stand two by two 12 meters apart. They throw the ball across to the other side and sprint after the ball.
**10x per person**

- 2 people at a pole.
- Each player has a color hat
- Player 1 starts and has 2 attempts of 2 meters to score. If player 1 scores then they may move the hat 1 meter back.
- Swap and then player 2 starts at 2 meters with 2 chances. Does player 2 score within the 2 chances then he may also move the hat back one meter.
- Are missed within the 2 goal attempts then the hat goes 1 meter forward.
- Whoever makes it to the 8 meters on the front and back first.
- If a player has passed the 8 meters on the front then in the next round he goes to the 2 meters on the back. If this is missed then he goes to the 8 meters in front again.

- Put the poles in the middle of the room
- Put the number of players under the pole and the rest start at the back of the pole (See drawing).
- Player runs the pattern and makes through balls in the first round. Each time a player gets to a pylon, first the ball is played out, then played in and immediately makes the running action toward the post.
- In the second round, the walk-through ball is replaced with a swerve ball with a shot.

- 4-team at a box which is marked out with 4 pawns
- The ball is played back and forth at the front pawns
- Players keep moving
- Players cross each other

Play 2:2 where the person playing the ball makes a move toward the basket to supposedly take the catch.

- Depending on how the defender stands, this lady sprints away to a free position to shoot
- Or she comes into the support and doubles with the declarer who then shoots

Which pair scores 3 times first.

Then against another pair

Then against another pair

Wonderful warm-up game:

- Form large circle
- Put three different colored caps in between each pair
- Coach calls left-right where the inner and outer circle moves in the called direction
- A different opponent each time

Points e.g. per small pylon 1 and the large 2. Be careful because the players become fanatical

**Pawn Tag**

- Divide the team into groups of 3 to 4 people
- Place pawns at different distances (for example, 4 meters, 8 meters, 12 meters and 20 meters)
- One player per team starts
- The player runs to the first pawn, taps it and runs back to the starting point
- Then the player taps the second pawn, and so on
- When the first player has touched all the pawns and is back at the start, the next player in the group starts
- The first team to get all the players wins

- 2 poles facing each other (each at 7 meters from the center line 4 poles side by side ).
- Each post has its own 2/3 team.
- The 2 players going for a through ball run towards the other pole.
- In the middle they run around the pylon (or around the center line).
- The players sprint back to their own post and take a through ball
**40x scoring**

**Variants**

- Instead of a through ball a pull away ball behind the post.
**20x scoring** - instead of a through ball you take an away ball at max 3 m from the post
**20x scoring** - instead of a through ball you pass the post and get the ball in front of you and shoot from the back
**20x score**

3 tallies at a post. Each 3-team adds up the amount of goals scored. Goal of this exercise is to score as many goals as possible.

- distance shot from movement in front of basket, after shot repeat shot. (Whoever scores 20 goals first).
- Walk-through balls front side combined with back side. 1 player makes a through ball on the front side then walks through to the back side and makes another through ball. After this switch. Whoever has 25 goals first.
- Shots on the 4 meter line. No repeat shot. Whoever scores 20 goals first
- 40 short chances.
- distance shot from movement behind basket, after shot repeat shot. (Whoever scored 20 goals first).

- There are at least 2 players per basket who have 10 points at the start of the game.
- They take turns making a through ball. Do they manage to score? Then 1 point goes into the imaginary pot. This pot can add up to 20/30 points.
- The points go out of the pot when a player misses. The points then go to the other player.
- If there are no points in the pot, no points can be lost.
