Reward players’ hustle rather than their height in this rebounding drill pitting a single offensive rebounder attempting to get around two defenders boxing out
WHY USE THIS BASKETBALL REBOUNDING DRILL
Most rebounding drills benefit taller players and don’t reward everyone else for boxing out or pursuing rebounds – this drill does.
You are on the wing with a ball. There is a line of offensive rebounders at the free-throw line. Position a line of defensive rebounders on each block .
HOW TO PLAY
A shot is taken from the wing. The two defensive rebounders sprint to box out the offensive player. The offensive player’s objective is to get around the box outs and pursue the rebound . The defenders do not pursue the rebound but maintain their box-out position to keep the offensive player from the ball .
If the rebound bounces twice, then the defense gets a point. If the offensive player touches the ball after one bounce, then the offense gets a point. If the offensive player touches the ball in the air, the offense gets two points. If the offensive player rebounds the ball in the air and scores on put-back shot, the offense earns three points. Each group plays offense for three minutes and defense for three minutes. The group with the most points at the end of six minutes wins.
