“Rebounding wins championships, you need to emphasize it and work with kids on it.”
-Former Tennessee women’s coach Pat Summitt.
Pat Summitt’s championship pedigree validates the importance of rebounds. Winning the rebounding battle is crucial to winning the game because more rebounds lead to more shot attempts. More shot attempts lead to more wins.
The Gauntlet Rebounding drill is designed to give your team the competitive fire to compete for every single rebound. Your players will be forced to fight for position to grab rebounds. Feel free to add incentives to give your players motivation to play hard in this drill. Note: Any made shot counts as a live ball situation.
