Clubs

The club/school must provide at least one assessor, who has a EKA coaching qualification. Details are to be sent to the KKA on registration.

The assessor/s must be present at all times when assessments are being made.

All four levels may be tested at club/school sessions.

The club/school must keep the KKA assessment sheets up to date.

It is the responsibility of the assessor(s) to maintain the high standards and correct techniques expected by the Awards Scheme.

Any person wearing a Skills Award badge but not demonstrating these expected requirements will be asked to name the assessor, who will be reported to the KKA.

 

Players/Participants

Each player must demonstrate the correct skills and attain the necessary results to be awarded each level.

Every player must be assessed by a recognised assessor/coach.

It is not necessary to complete Level 1 before attempting Level 2. It is advisable that Level 2 is taken before the player is put forward for Levels 3 and 4.

Players should remember that technique, co-operation and social awareness play an important part in Levels 3 and 4.

The height of the post and ball size will relate to the age-group requirements determined by the England Korfball Association (EKA) and are as follows:

Under 13's – 3.5m post, size 4 ball
Under 16's – 3.5m post, size 5 ball

There are no time or age limits imposed for completion of the tests.
