Basketball Drill - 3-Man Rebounding, PowerUp Drill

By James Gels, from the Coach’s Clipboard Basketball Playbook, @ http://www.coachesclipboard.net

This drill stresses boxing out and rebounding, as well as low post offensive power moves. This is a good drill for your inside post players. Have three players under the basket. The coach or a manager shoots the ball up. All three players work for position and go for the rebound. The player who gets the rebound powers the ball back to the hoop while the other two are on defense and try to stop him.

No dribbling is permitted except for a one-bounce dribble adjust. The offensive player should be thinking three-point play (the old fashioned three pointer), the basket and a foul. This drill not only stresses rebounding fundamentals and aggressiveness, but also power offensive moves, as well as "in the paint" defense and shot blocking.

Here's another option:
Allow the two defenders to "bump" the offensive player's body (not the arms or shooting hand) when going up for the shot. This of course makes it very difficult to score, but helps teach your post players how to "finish" even when there is contact on the shot… again it's the old-fashioned three-point play.
