The Backboard Touch

Setup

All you need is a backboard and yourself.

Instructions

Stand below the backboard, but out a step or so. Using a twofooted jump, explode upwards to touch the backboard with both hands. Land two footed on the toes and bend knees, absorb energy and gather yourself for next jump.  Twofooted jump back up to touch the backboard again over and over until repetition target is reached.

Variations

Use the backboard on each side of the rim.  Begin on right side.  Jump and touch the backboard then shuffle across to the left side and repeat.  Shuffle back and forth touching the backboard on each side of the rim before shuffling back.

Coaching Points

Focus on form, exploding upwards and correct landing
