Basketball Rebounding Fundamentals

- Players should anticipate where the missed shot will rebound to.
- The ball is more likely to rebound to the opposite side from where the shot was taken.
- When getting in position for the rebound it is important to make contact with your opponent by pivoting into them.
- When boxing out your opponent, keep a low base with the knees bent and hands up.
- When you've established a good box out position, go toward the basket for the rebound.
- After getting the rebound hold the ball at chest height with elbows out. This is called chinning the ball.
- The outlet pass should be made as quickly as possible after a defensive rebound.
- To make the outlet pass, players should first forward or reverse pivot to pass away from the opponent and toward their teammate.
- After getting an offensive rebound in close to the basket, players should go up strong for a shot or lay-up.
- After getting an offensive rebound further away from the basket, players can shoot if they're open, pass to an open teammate, or re-set the offense.
- When your opponent shoots the ball, watch how they follow their shot. They are often the best judge of where the rebound will go.
- After boxing out the shooter, try to beat them to that spot.
- Boxing out your opponent may result in you or a teammate rebounding the basketball. It is important to box out as a team.
