One of my favorite [tag]basketball coaching drills[/tag] is a [tag]boxing out drill[/tag].
Divide players into two groups, 5-6 per group.
Group a stands just inside the tip off circle, facing a player form group B as if he were defending him.
One [tag]basketball[/tag] is placed on the center of the circle.
On the whistle, players from group A must turn and box out, keeping group B from entering the circle and grabbing the basketball.
Try to keep boxing out for up to a 5 count if possible. It’s a tougher [tag]basketball drill[/tag] than it sounds and really teaches players how to box out aggressively!
