DESCRIPTION

  • Stand on the baseline below the backboard;
  • Two-footed jump arms raised above the head to touch the backboard with both hands;
  • Land two footed on the toes;
  • Bend knees, absorb energy, and two-footed jump back up to touch the backboard;
  • If players cannot jump that high in one motion, take a second jump, gaining more power from the knee bend.
  • COACHING POINTS

    Set a target of 20 backboard touches or 30 seconds continuous work, or whatever is appropriate for the player.
