In this video, you will learn an exercise to practice catching the rebound in defense.
In this drill, the defense's aim is to get the ball after setting an effective *down screen.
One player stands wherever they like outside the key with the ball.
Two offense players stand in line with the free throw line.
Two defense players stand facing them on the lane lines of the key.
The ball carrier takes a shot, which they try to make bounce off the hoop.
The two defenders must set a down screen on the offense in order to catch the rebound.
If the offense catch the rebound, they must score quickly in the same basket.
However, if the defense catches the rebound, they must attack the other basket, with the shooter joining their team.
To get the ball away successfully, the first pass has to be made quickly. The longer it is, the more problems this will pose for the defense.
The two offense players now defend to stop the attack.
The player who caught the first rebound then changes place with the shooter.
To make the exercise more difficult, add in this rule: the ball must now bounce on the ground once before the defense can catch the rebound.
To succeed, they will have to block the offense perfectly.
The offense, on the other hand, can catch the rebound before it touches the ground.
To succeed in this exercise, it is essential to be able to set a good down screen to block the offense. Over to you!
