In this video, you will learn how to catch a rebound in defense, which means getting the ball back after a shot from the other team. It's a crucial skill for winning a game.
To catch a rebound, follow these three steps: Boxing out, jumping for the ball, and getting the ball away.
First, Boxing out.
When an opponent shoots at the basket, don't look at the ball but go towards the player you're guarding, then turn to face the basket.
Bend your knees, as if you're about to sit on your opponent's legs, and block them with your back, keeping your elbows raised so they can't get around you.
Push backwards to drive them as far from the basket as you can.
Keep blocking for as long as possible.
Secondly, jumping for the ball.
Jump for the ball, arms extended and fingers spread, to catch it as high as possible.
Catch it in one hand then bring your other hand in quickly to get a firm grip.
In the air, once you've caught the ball, pull it toward your chest, with your elbows out to the sides to protect it.
Thirdly, getting the ball away.
When you land, pivot towards the nearest sideline to pass the ball quickly to one side and initiate a counter attack.
Always protect the ball by keeping your elbows out to the sides, so as not to lose the ball in a danger zone.
To catch a rebound in defense, boxing out is essential. If all your teammates are blocking their marked players well, the ball bounce should be able to bounce once before you catch it. Over to you!
