In this guide we’re going to look at competing for a rebounded shot.
As a goal shooter or goal attack it’s important that you can shoot and score goals consistently. It can take a lot of build up work by your team to secure the chance to shoot, but even the world’s best shooters miss occasionally in each game. If you, or your shooting partner, can successfully win the ball after it’s rebounded then you get a second chance to shoot, or rework the attack with players outside the circle to create a chance to shoot from a better position.
If you don’t compete for the rebound then it hands quick possession over to your opponents and, before you know it, the ball will be back down court and your team will be under pressure. You won’t win every rebounded ball but just by competing to reach it, you’ll slow down the defender, be in a better position to mark them and reduce the speed at which your opponents can counter-attack.
