The Korfball Team


Youth Korfball

Korfball is more than just a sport. It provides unique opportunities for young people to participate in a team sport that is inclusive. The majority of clubs up and down the country have youth teams, with the youngest players playing a smaller format version of the game (Korfball4) before progressing through the age groups until their playing the Korfball8.

Want to set up your own Youth Korfball sessions? There are a few options!

Teaching Children Korfball Course

The Teaching Children Korfball course is an introductory course designed for  aspiring and current teachers with little or no experience of Korfball working in both primary and secondary school environments. Learners need to be a New Qualified Teacher, have Qualified Teacher status or be on a PGCE pathway.

Activator Course

‘Activators’ are enthusiastic volunteers who introduce Korfball to individuals in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment – great for children. Activators are essentially responsible for coordinating, organising and facilitating Korfball activity.

Both are 3 hour practical courses that will provide you with a basic knowledge of how to play and teach the sport to help you get the children involved in a sport they might not of experienced before.

If you’re interested in running a course at your school or in your area get in touch and we’ll make it happen!
