MK Lakers Academy

Korfball for 9-16 year olds in Milton Keynes

MK Lakers Academy welcomes young people aged 9-16 years old. From beginner to experienced player – all abilities are welcome to train with us.

For the very young players we are practicing ball handling and shooting and the focus is less on marking or defensive manoeuvres. As the age range increases there is more emphasis placed on skills and defending (boys marking boys, girls only marking girls);In line with ability the posts are entirely adjustable and as such the U9 and U11 players have different height goals (from one another). Whereas U14/16 share the same height posts which is especially useful in gameplay (and incidentally this is the same height as adult players!). If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
