This rebounding drill will increase your jumping ability and strength for putbacks, as well as your concentration.
Start underneath and to the right side of the hoop. Begin by tossing the ball off the backboard. Timing it correctly, the player jumps up, grabs the rebound, and pins it against the backboard. Then, the player jumps up again, taps the ball against the backboard once, and scores the lay-up. Continue for seven consecutive lay-ups, and then switch to the other side of the hoop.
Strive for perfection. Have the player make seven in a row. If they mess up on number six, its back to the beginning. This will improve their concentration, which is a valuable asset during a game.
Choose a number that is best, five, seven, ten, it doesn't matter. Strength and concentration are the keys here.
Strength around the basket, jumping ability, concentration.
