The aim is to obtain possession of the ball from a missed shot.

 

Organisation:  Two players and two defenders around the area of the post. Player takes a shot whilst being second stage defended. The shot is missed in order for the defender to jump and collect the rebound.

Coaching Points

 

  • Defender takes up a ready position, knees bent, on toes ready to jump.
  • Arms begin at the players side slightly flexed ready to move upwards at speed to increase jumping height and reach for the ball at highest point.
  • Eyes directed up towards the ball and ring.
  • Avoid standing directly under the ring.
  • Jump straight up and down and land in an upright and balanced position.

 

Progressions:

 

  • Incorporate a turn in the air to land facing your attacking end.
  • Make a successful pass after winning the rebound.
