I like the idea of having the rebounding team look to push the ball on offense after securing the rebound to make your rebounding drills more game-like.

Competitive Rebounding Drill

They use a rack of basketballs as a visual representation and take a basketball off each time their players do not meet the standard that they have established. When the rack is empty, you can have the team, run or whatever you need to do to make your coaching points.

One of their points of emphasis is to make it to the 10 second line in conversion.

Defensive team must touch the baseline, offense must get back to the coach above the top of the key before the defense blocks out, or before the offense can go after the rebound.

Numbers Rebounding Drill

5 offensive rebounders outside the three point arc. They are numbered 1 through 5.

3 defenders with 10 toes in the paint.

Coach calls 3 numbers and those 3 numbers from the perimeter offensive rebounders crash the offensive glass.

Scoring system is

1 point for a defensive rebound and a dribble to half court in 2 seconds
2 points for an offensive rebound, if they score the offensive rebound, it is another two points
1 bonus point for 3 rebounds in a row

Play to 10 with the same groups on offense and defense until one team wins.

To start the drill, keep the offense stationary, to make the drill more challenging, have the offense move before the assistant coach calls a number.
