|48 Rebounding Drill
By: Jill Nagel - Rock Bridge HS (MO)
Provided by: Online Basketball Drills
Requirements: one basket, one basketball, 12 players, manager/coach
- This rebounding drill requires 2 teams.
- Drill requires 6 players from each team (designated here as Team A and Team B), thus a total of at least 12 players is required.
- Extra players occupy end line and rotate in after 30 second segments.
- Use only one basket for this drill.
- To begin, 4 players from each team occupy a spot on the 3 pt line evenly spaced – they are stationary when occupying a spot on the 3 pt line.
- Two players from each team will be the rebounders and start inside the lane.
- Thus, each team has 2 players inside the lane and four players at 3 pt to begin the drill.
This is a toughness and rebounding drill. However, without proper oversight, it can quickly become a foul fest. We do not call fouls unless players become flagrant. It is meant to be a toughness drill fighting for rebounding position, immediate post up position and hustling to secure ball possession. In the process, ensure players do not turn the drill into undesired play.
This is a spirited drill. We usually build it into our practices but can also be done impromptu if a coach feels the team needs new life in practice – this drill raises the level of play in your practice.
The losing team has a “penalty” of the coach’s discretion – push-ups, wall sits, sprints, etc to ensure players are actively engaged.
