    Rebounding drill for kids

    Coaching my daughter's 3rd grade bball team. With the exception of one kid (proudly I say that it is MY kid) I can't get the girls to really go after those rebounds. Sound familiar, Cyclone fans? Anyhoo, was hoping someone had a fun drill or game I could play with them tonight at practice. Thanks.

    Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    Buy 8-10 Bags of M&M's have them try to get to the M&M's.....One Girl holding open bag can only use body (butt) to keep the other Girl away, other Girl using hands and feet to try and get one.....(box out drill)

    After done pick all M&M's off floor and eat...lol

    or maybe do not open bags..?

    Cool Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    What worked for me and my son's 2nd grade team was to do focus on boxing out instead of going after the rebound.

    I took two kids at a time, placed a ball on the floor at center court (so there was circle perimeter going around where the ball was placed), then when I blew my whistle one kid had to try to get the ball and the other kid had to box him out and keep him out of the circle and away from the ball for as long as he could.

    During games we emphasized turning around, boxing out and looking for the ball as soon as a shot goes up. Once they got the boxing out concept, it made rebounding a lot easier.

    good luck.

    Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    Well, most kids usually like to play offense more than defense. Split them into 2 teams of four and set them up at various spots in the half court. Obviously one team on offense and one on defense. Tell them the team on defense has to get 2 or 3 consecutive rebounds then they get to be on offense. The trouble here is instructing them not to steal the ball and let the offense get a shot up. It's hard. That leaves incentive for both teams to rebound. I have never coached girls, much less girls that young, but it works for boys around that age. If nothing else, they will likely get a rebounding attitude. I guess I just usually try to make the drills competitive with something on the line so they are trying.

    This one I used and the kids seem to give a lot of effort. Like I said I don't know about girls that age.

    5th grade = more of the same.

    I've been a part of those drills. Very good one. The 2 or 3 sometimes 5 consecutive rebounds to get is real "key." We usually had a time limit to do it in as well.....or you had to run till you puke.

    Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    Couldn't you use lightning or some variation of it to encourage going after loose balls? Helps with free throw shooting at the same time.

    Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    If they have older sisters, ask them to come in and kick their butts on the boards. I had two older brothers (one 6'8" and one 6'7"). I had to learn how to leverage and postion myself real quick if I ever wanted to snag a board against those guys (I'm only 6'0").

    (only kidding of course about the older sisters thing, but hey, it worked for me)

    Did some more thinking on this, I think it could work and is more of a game than a drill, which I would imagine works way better with that age group. Unlike traditional lightning where once the person behind you makes a shot you are out for the whole game, tell them they can stay on the court outside the lane once they are out. If they can snag a rebound away from one of the shooters they can get back in line to shoot.

    Tom Izzo's drill. Put them in football pads and helmets. My favorite rebounding and loose ball drill ever when I heard he does that. Izzo is great.

    Re: Rebounding drill for kids

    Here is a great drill I ran with a 7-8 team I coached a few years ago:

    War Rebounding-- Four players stand in a line directly under the hoop. You have the remaining four players stand spread out from between 15 feet and the three point line. Those 4 players (the ones standing around the perimeter) are numbered 1-4. The coach will yell out a number (1-4) and the player at the top of the line under the basketball will be responsible for boxing out the player whose number is yelled. The additional three players have to communicate who they are going to box out. If the offense gets a rebound, its worth 2 pts. If the defense gets a rebound it is worth one. We usually played to ten, and it got very competitive by the end. This is a great drill to work on communication, competitiveness and rebounding.
