3.4 TYPES OF KORFBALL
(h) KORFBALL WITH TEAMS OF DIFFERENT NUMBERS OF PLAYERS
Exercises with teams of different numbers to practice specific activities
See the exercises below. In every case, change roles after a certain time.
A. Three attackers against four defenders on one korf. This situation sometimes arises in the game and is very difficult for the attacker, especially keeping the ball after a shooting attempt. The attack can try the tactic of putting a tall player continually by the post or can have a long build-up, patiently waiting for a good chance.
B. Four attackers against three defenders at one korf. This situation can also arise in the game. Most teams choose to put the free attacker by the post while the other three shoot from distance.
C. In the training, you can use four against three allowing all of the attackers to shoot and the defenders may defend anyone. The attackers have to create an excellent chance, requiring collective play and good vision while the defenders must try a kind of zone defence.
D. Four attackers against two defenders. The defenders can defend anyone and all of the attackers can shoot. An exercise for the defenders in zone defending and a good exercise for the attackers to score quickly. This is a good variation for young players, where scoring is a pretty tall order
