Im a girl and in the 8th grade and im 6 feet tall! I was wondering how i could get re-bounds more easily if i have a player that is the same height as i am. I box out and jump, but sometimes i cant jump as high as girls that are a lot shorter than me. Also, i always do the opening tip and i was wondering if you had any pointers for me on that. Thanks
HoopsGirl... all day everyday : )
listen carefuly i am 6foot 3inches and i am in the 9th grade. i just started high school. wat u want to do is u want to first of all get good position. if u have a high basketball iq u will know where the ball is going. also if u dont have a high iq just look at the shooter and look at where the ball goes. if it is a miss u can tell. lastly about the jump practice with your coahc. also at home what helps me is practicing my jump. my celing is 10 feet and i can touch it. but to make sure i keep myself in the right shape i try touching my ceiling everyday. also if u have a high target in front of ur housejump and try to touch it. i do that and i can touch 11 feet. u need a target and jump and try to touch it. if u cant get it at first try again. dont go hard on yourself if u cant touch it and remember practice makes perfect o keep trying
Thanks!! I'll def. try the target idea!!
