Have players gather in circle each with a specific number eg. 1...2...3.. Put a player in middle with ball at their feet.
When calling out a number the player's who's number is called attacks middle attempting to touch ball without touching ball through defenders legs.
Player in middle blocks out player attempting to touch ball by boxing out with arms outstretched and back stressing good position and blocking out.
As soon as first player either touches ball or is blocked out call another number having defender move to prevent next player from touching ball.
Excellent drill for younger players to learn basics of boxing out
Stress for player in middle to body up on defender with arms out and back
Quick footwork is essential (on balls of feet)
Make sure defender picks up direction of defender without turning and facing them
This will allow defender to get in habit of finding opponent and blocking out for good position and rebound
