Practice rebounding skills using box-out technique

  • One coach with ball is positioned around free throw line acting as shooter
  • Six players are in the paint, with three designated as offensive team and three on defensive team
  • Coach attempts jump shot (missing on purpose), and players in the paint position themselves for rebound
  • Defensive players turn around and use proper box-out technique to go after rebound, while offensive players attempt to get around them and maintain possession
  • Run drill 3 on 3, 2 on 2, and 1 on 1 to isolate individuals and test their ability to box-out
  • Run drill continuously for allotted drill time, changing number of players competing and increase competitiveness by having defense run up and back if offense gets an offensive rebound
George’s Tips
  • Rebounding is a mentality – get tough, get physical, and get the ball!
  • This is a competitive drill but don't let it become mayhem – don't want anyone getting hurt
