4 on 4 Line Rebounding Drill

Brandon Bailey

Coach stands on the baseline with a basketball

Coach calls out a number and passes to one of four players on the peflmeter

Which ever number he calls, that number has to closeout and block out on the player with the basketball

(IN THIS FRAME. THE COACH HAS CALLED OUT 1, 50 1 CLOSES OUT AND BLOCKS OUT x2)

The other players have to communicate and block out the other three players

Once the offensive player catches the ball, he shoots

When the ball touches the rim, the play is live

There are no out of bounds, no fouls, and the offense doesn’t have to take the ball out

The team that scores goes to defense

The team with the most points, or is the line at the end of the drill wins
