DESCRIPTION

Make sure that feet are in front of the defenders feet, back is bent, knees are bent, and as wide as possible.Keep good balance.

Keep arms wide and target hand up.

Post up on the block and using a toss back or spin back, catch the spin back and meet the quick pass.

Always chin the ball when close to the basket and keep it there at all times unless going to shoot or dribble.

If pressured by a double team then pivot away from the pressure but keep the ball chinned.

COACHING POINTS

Make sure you now how to post up. Look at how you are doing it in a mirror or a window and make sure you are doing it properly.

Keep the ball pressed right under your chin with your elbows out wide but do not swing them back and forth just protect the ball.
