Korfball drills for shoot / score / shot


  • Player 1 is the attacker
  • Player 2 is the receiver
  • Player 3 is the forward
  1. Player 2 starts with the ball, who throws it to player 3 and then immediately runs to the basket, taking the catch.
  2. Player 1 runs simultaneously to the middle of the field where player 3 throws the ball back to player 1.
  3. Player 3 immediately runs to the short where the one becomes the server.
  4. Player 1 immediately throws the ball back to player 3 who is now under the basket.
  5. Player 1 makes an in out shot.
  6. 5-10 goals.
  • Run over two hurdles and then make a through ball 10x overhand, 10x underhand and 10x with 1 hand.
  • Start on the left side of the hurdle and move to the right behind the hurdle, then move forward and back to the left, then move forward and quarter to the right score 10x.
  • Then do this the other way around; score 10x
  • Put the hurdles 5 meters apart, move to the left, jump over the hurdle and get the ball at the same time, come down, jump up and shoot at the same time, then to the right score 20x .


Two posts at >10m; two balls; under each post 3 players; player 1 to the right of the basket, players 2 and 3 to the left: other post idem 4 to the right 5 and 6 to the left.

As a warm up first with low intensity. Then increase the intensity. With pairs you are the first one after the shot. Pay attention.
  1. Player 1 moves the ball across to 5 and passes it to the other side; keep score up to x. 5 catches the ball and moves to the right of the basket etc.
  2. Ditto players turn half way whole round around each other. Then through ball
  3. Idem with away ball
  4. Announcer pulls away to the right. Shooter too. So long passes. Forward rushes back to catch.
Player 1 places the ball to player 2 and runs to the post for the catch.

Just before taking that position, the player feints and steps out to the back/side or forward.
If the player steps to the back/side, he gets the ball and shoots. Steps forward, gets the ball and plays it right back, allowing the 2nd player to shoot.

The catch in these cases is completed from space by two others.

Pairs per basket; one passer and one shooter.

  • After 5 shots switch positions.
  • If you hit, you get 2 points, if you miss, you lose one point.
  • Which pair will score 20 points first.
In pairs at a basket with 5 markers. Starting at 1 meter to about 6 meters.
You may shoot 2x from any distance.
Hit? Then you go one step further.
Miss? Then the other goes and you start the next round again at the beginning.

  1. Which player scores first at the back line?
  2. Which player scores first from line 1 to 5 and then back to 1! so 1-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-1


  • Make groups of 4/5 or 6 players with 2 balls.
  • These line up, with the first two players having a ball.
  • Start at 4 meters from the basket.
  • Once the first has shot the second may start shooting.
  • The shooters go after the ball and shoot again from that spot.
  • When the first one scores, he gives the ball to number 3 who then starts shooting immediately.
  • If the last shooter started scores first the first shooter is finished.
  • Who wins this challenge.
  • We play it from 4 sides of the basket.
  • We work this exercise with pairs or trios (with 2 teams alternate, with 3 teams rotate).
  • There are 6 pylons around the basket, all at 6 meters.
    1. Which 2/3 team is first to score 5 x a walk through ball from each pylon?
    2. Which 2/3 team is first to score 2/3x from each distance
  • Then the pylons are set at 2 meters and each player scores 2 goals from each side


In short: shooting practice (-game) in which you shoot from different sides of the basket.

  • Per basket one pair with a ball, or in case of lack of sufficient baskets 2 pairs each with a ball.
  • At each basket, four pawns or other markers: one in front of and one behind the basket and one to the left and right of the basket, always at a distance of about 6 meters.

  • One of each pair starts under the basket.
  • The other is instructed to score a goal as quickly as possible from each pawn.
  • Then switch positions.
  • Which pair will finish 'the trip around the world' the quickest?

  • The distances can of course be made larger or smaller at will.
  • Or: score 2 goals at each pawn.

  • Instead of shooting from standstill, it is possible to shoot from movement,
  • Or simply: take evasive balls.
  • There are 2 pairs per basket.
  • The two shooters are now instructed to score two goals together at each pawn, no matter who scores the goals.
  • So there is a change of function after 4 times 2 goals have been scored.
  • At which basket is the first to go around 2 times (and therefore has scored 16 goals first)?

The main consideration behind the above exercises is the fact that shooting is usually preferred from in front of the basket. And since a large part of the box is next to or behind the basket, it is necessary to practice from those spots as well. And shooting from there is really different: not only because the baskets usually hang slightly forward, but also because the attachment to the post is clearly visible to the shooter, which affects the estimation of the correct distance and height.

Clean shooting is always important of course, but here it comes down very much to scoring goals. When players play this game for the first time, they are initially quite vocal and there may be reactions like "this is impossible!" or "I don't like it". These reactions disappear after a short time, people start to shoot with great concentration and scoring improves by leaps and bounds. What seemed impossible at first, turns out to be possible after all!
