[[abstract]]This study has been mainly focused on team cohesion. The difference between the male and female korfball players’ team cohesion performances before the game and after the game has been investigated. A correlation has been conducted among team cohesion, post-game performance and satisfaction as well. The target subjects included 33 male and 36 female level-A korfball players, from four different universities. The questionnaires were administered before and after the 2003 College Cup Korfball Championship. The Group Environment Questionnaire (GEQ), revised by Su-Zr Lu, (1995) has been adopted to collect data. ‘Pearson product-moment correlation’ and ‘mixed design two-way ANOVA’ have been implemented to analyze the collected data. The result reveals that, (1) The korfball players’ post-game team cohesion performance is better than pre-game; there is no significant team cohesion difference between the male and female players. (2) The korfball players performed better task cohesion after the game than before the game; there is no significant task cohesion difference between the male and female players. (3) The korfball players performed no significant social cohesion difference before the game and after the game, no difference between male and female players, either. (4) There is a positive correlation between korfball plays’ performance and their satisfaction, but no such relationship between team cohesion and performance, nor between team cohesion and satisfaction.
