with Michael Lang, former Assistant Coach Urban Prep/Englewood High School (IL)
Winning the rebounding battle is one of the key components to consistent success on game day. Michael Lang believes that success comes with practicing the right habits each and every day. In this on-court presentation, he demonstrates the rebounding keys and practice drills he uses every day to help his teams dominate the boards.
Keys to Rebounding
Coach Lang begins the presentation with his five keys to rebounding. Understanding these rebounding essentials will put your players in the best position to excel on the boards. The first, and possibly the most important, is "Your Will vs. My Will." This idea of players having an overriding belief that they CAN and WILL get a rebound is the foundation great rebounders build upon. The other keys follow and are important to the success of teams that own the glass.
You will learn daily drills that will teach your players the technique and physical mindset needed to help you win the war on the boards. These drills are loaded with variations to develop rebounding skills and finishing at the rim.
Coach Lang's drills are fundamental in nature, fun and challenging for athletes. If you want to make an immediate improvement with your team, focusing on rebounding is a great place to start. This video will help coaches of all levels train their players to become more tenacious rebounders.
