Around the World Rebounding
This basketball rebounding drill will focus on close-outs, boxing out, and winning the rebound after a shot.
You will need at least 7 players and 1 basketball for this basketball rebounding drill.
- Set up 6 shooters positioned around the 3-point arc.
- One player will start in the middle of the lane as the rebounder.
- The rebounder will start the drill by passing the ball to the first shooter.
- The rebounder than sprints to close-out the shooter.
- Once the shooter shoots, the rebounder boxes out the shooter and rebounds the ball.
- Once the shooter rebounds the ball he then passes to the next shooter and sprints to close-out the new shooter.
- The drill continues until the rebounder has rebounded all 6 shooters.
- Once the rebounder has successfully rebounded his 6 shots the players rotate. The rebounder moves to the first shooter's position and the 6th shooter becomes the rebounder.
- Allow the shooters to either shoot or take it to the basket. This will keep the defensive player honest when shutting the shooter down.
- Rotate after 6 rebounds in a row instead of just all 6 shooters. This will make the defensive player have to work harder for the rebounds.
- Make sure the defensive player is closing out the shooter properly.
- Proper box-out position.
- Go up for the rebound when necessary.
