Many coaches struggle with [tag]shooting drills for basketball[/tag].Â Here is one suggestion that Jeff sent to me and has been successful.
Here is a rebounding/[tag]box out drill[/tag] that my players have some fun with:
This [tag]basketball[/tag] [tag]drill[/tag] works best with 10 players but can be modified for more or less.
Set up 2 teams – one offense, one defense.
Coach will shoot from anywhere in the half court, hoping to create a [tag]rebound[/tag].
Defensive players yell “Shot” on release and boxout their opponent.
To keep it competitive, award 1 point for [tag]defensive[/tag] rebounds and 2 points for [tag]offensive[/tag] rebounds, and switch after a set number of shots.Â Add up total points and losing team can run sprints or whatever.
I definitely find that keeping track of points is the only way this drill works, and the players like the competitive nature of the drill.
It’s simple but it does work.
