Korfball drills for warming-up

: Two (or three) players per post. One player with ball in front of the basket at 7 meters.

  • The player under the basket pulls away
    • The ball is thrown to him (if the set-up is right, he receives the ball a bit diagonally).
    • The player in front of the basket comes next to him.
    • And makes a shot.
  • Same as above
    • Only now the player in front of the basket comes alongside again.
    • And makes a through ball from the space without the ball.
  • Same thing,
    • Only now there is no walkthrough,
    • But there is a threat for the walkthrough.
    • And the player without the ball runs long (away from the puller and parallel to the basket)
    • And takes the shot.
  • same,
    • Only now the shooter runs long again
    • And after walking the long line, comes through for the walkthrough ball without the ball.
Correcting for
