3.4 TYPES OF KORFBALL
(d) KORFBALL IN ONE DIVISION WITH ONE KORF
Training game in one division
Four attackers and four defenders in a division of 20x20 metres.
This game is often used in training sessions. There are several variations, each with its own advantages. These variations involve the approach to changing functions.
A. The attacking team continues to attack, even if the defenders win the ball. After a certain time (say five minutes) the trainer gives the instruction to swap roles. This approach is best to practice a certain way of playing. If the trainer has put the accent on front defence earlier in the training, then the accent can also be put on this during the game. The match element is fairly weak in this system.
B. Functions change every time the defenders win the ball but three passes must be played before the new attack can shoot. This brings us closer to the game situation. Often the attack is not very well formed and the game is played too much in the post area.
C. After winning possession, the defence must transfer the ball to the centre line (or to a cone 15-20 metres from the korf) and only then do they become the attack. This variation allows the attack positions to be well constructed and is also suitable to practice particular elements that have been used during the training.
