: Getting to the point where we've forgotten the basic fundamentals of rebounding. When the shot goes up, we
: 1. Look for a defender to box out. We don't just turn and look at the shot and then try to go get the rebound.
: 2. Go and put a body on the defender.
: 3. Turn and find the basketball as you continue to body and box out your opponent.
: 4. Go and get the rebound.
Two quick things we teach... If you are below the FT line, yes, go body-up, elbows bent, keep him on your back and between your elbows, go get it and chin it. If you're good, you go snatch it and you're already head-whipping to see how deep the outlet pass should be. Ideally, a longer outlet pass so we can run.
Secondly, if you are guarding above the FT line, we teach to "check out".. meaning we want a forearm shiver to the chest and form a T with him- your shoulder even with middle of his chest, then head whip and find the ball. Most players above FT line are taught to provide defensive balance (get back!) anyway, so most don't crash. So if that happens, you get to the elbow and chase the long rebound. If they do decide to crash, you have contact with them anyway with your "check-out" and can easily use your feet to now "box-out" on the crash. If a teammate gets it, you now focus on the outlet. No need to go full box-out on a guy 2 feet above the circle...just get contact and control them without holding.
: It's a four step process. Maybe I missed a step.
: Copy and paste this family and keep it on your to do list...smh at the piss poor grassroots basketball development in CA.
