Purpose: To have the players go strong after the rebound and to provide a competitive, game-like situation so that the players will get some opposition as they go up for the rebound.
Drill: Form 3 lines of players, as shown in the diagram, about 10-15 feet away from the basket. Use more baskets if available.
The first player in line 1 takes a shot and goes for the rebound. As 1 shoots, 2 and 3 also go for the rebound. After one of the players secure the rebound, they rotate to the end of a different line and the next group begins.
After every player has participated or after a specified timeframe, have the shot come from a different line.
Coaching Point: This is a great drill to use a basketball rebounder of which we have several available at the Hoops U. Basketball Store (remember, Insider members save 10%) If you do not have a basketball rebounder, have a coach or manager shoot the shot to miss (I don’t like players shooting shots they purposely intend to miss — doing so creates a habit we don’t want to teach!)
