Make new friends
KVS/Maritiem participates in the korfball competition with teams ranging from 4-year-old kids to senior level teams. Training and coaching instructions generally are in Dutch, but most trainers are also comfortable in English.
What is korfball?
Korfball is a fast paced mixed-gender ball sport, originating from the Netherlands. It’s a very dynamic game and similar to netball and basketball in its playing style. It is played in over 40 countries around the world.
Check out this video from the International Korfball Federation.
Teams are composed of 4 men and 4 women who work together to outscore the opposition. They are divided into two halves of 2 men and 2 women, known as a division. One division attacks whilst the other defends, each on a separate side of the court. Whilst the ball is in the other half players can rest, ready for the next burst of play on their side.
Every 2 goals the divisions change over though, so players must be adept at both offensive and defensive play.
It’s often credited as the most inclusive sport out there, as every single player on the pitch needs to contribute to be successful!
It’s a very fun, quick and tactical game, which focuses on teamwork above anything else.
The rules of Korfball can be quite daunting for a first timer! Fortunately there’s is a great video explaining pretty much every rule in the game.
Not just korfball
In addition to korfball training (twice a week), matches (on Saturday) and tournaments, we organize many social activities. There is always something going on, whether it be our youth camp (the best week of the year), our pub quizzes, our game nights or our awesome dance parties.
Our teams participate both in an outdoor and an indoor season. In September, October, April and May we train and compete outdoors in Westbroekpark, Cremerweg 2. The indoor season runs from the beginning of November until the end of March. De Blinkerd is our home sports hall but we also train in other indoor locations in Scheveningen.
We currently have over 400 members. Fun and a great social atmosphere are important to us, as is performance. The club is run by volunteers. So when you become a member, we also expect you to take on some volunteer duties.
The membership fee depends on your age and your playing level and is collected in terms by means of direct debit. You can find the membership fees here.
We cater for all children
KVS/Maritiem wants to develop the talents of all children. Youth players therefore train twice a week, on the same fields and with the same materials. One session is with their entire age group and the other one is with their own team. We also use the joint-training sessions for trainer consultation and individual trainer development.
We are very proud of our korfball club. That’s why we want to share our enthusiasm with you. Come and find out what we’re all about!
