Home - How to Build Aggression For Great Rebounding

  How to build aggression for great rebounding

It’s a well known fact that aggressive players get rebounds.

After all, how many times have you watched a long rebound where most of the players eyed the ball, but only one player actually pursued it?

Most of the time, it all comes down to who wants the ball the most. The player that rushes with heart and aggression is going to get it, hands down.

If you’ve got timid players in your group then they’re going to get pounded on the boards if you’re not careful. If they want to win, they’ve got to be aggressive; ideally, they need to be more aggressive than the opposing team.

If you want your players to take advantage of basketball rebounding opportunities, then they need to have more heart, passion, and focus than the opposing team.

So, how can you develop these things in your players?

Building Aggression

Well, you’ve got to start by stressing it to your players. You’ve got to reward your team when you see them play with passion and aggression.  And, you’ve got to spend time practicing it every day.

Aggression drills should be part of every practice. These drills are usually competitive.

If you show your team that aggression is important to you, they’ll pick up on it.  Once they understand that aggression wins games, they’ll be more likely to show it.

What To Look Out For

When you’re focusing on aggression basketball drills, it’s easy for things to get out of control. So you’ve got to be careful about a few things.

First, keep an eye out for injuries. Aggression drills can often lead to things like broken noses, missing teeth, broken fingers…these things are not good. No coach wants their players to get injured, so keep your eyes open.

You also have to keep an eye out for fouls.  Aggression can often lead to fouls during a game. Some fouls are ok; that’s natural. But if your team is committing too many, then the aggression is going to do more harm than good.

There is a thin line that separates controlled aggression and out of control aggression. And as their coach, it’s your job to keep an eye on it. You must control your players’ aggression so they learn the right habits.
