In basketball, securing a rebound is critical to getting points on the board. Whether an offensive or defensive rebounder, it’s all about reaction. From a good athletic stance to keeping the ball high, there is one goal for each rebounder: get the ball. With IMG Academy's How-To basketball rebounding drills video, our coaches focus on rebounding techniques to use on both sides of the court.
In this video, you will get a breakdown of three basketball rebound drills to become a better rebounder. Watch how student-athletes perform each drill from both an offensive and defensive approach with instruction from a former NBA player and current IMG Academy basketball coach on stance, foot positioning, and player contact. Each drill is broken down within this video and provides an overview of how these three specific rebound drills can improve your skills:
- Rebounding Battle Drill
- Free Throw Box Out Drill
- Superman Drill
Take notes on the Rebounding Battle Drill where student-athletes show how to outwork and “battle” each other to get the ball. With the Free Throw Box Out Drill, players box-out free throws to prevent the other team from making any baskets while the Superman Drill helps athletes chase the ball off the backboard.
