The video below shows a quick clip from the Canada vs. Spain U17 World Cup game earlier today in Belarus. With the FIBA rule of a 14 second reset teams MUST have concepts and strategies in place to capitalize on scoring opportunities. There is little time to center the ball for a set offense.
With offensive strategy such as this of trying to space the floor well and re-attack quickly, attention must be paid to the defensive end of the floor as well. On defense, especially on the weak side, defenders need to be on high-alert, knowing that their opponents will be seeking situations to take advantage of. Teams should certainly look at tracking offense after the OREB to see how to improve efficiency.
In this clip the Canadian [weak side] defender relaxes and loses her attention to the ball, giving up an easy layup at the rim. Note how Spain keeps good spacing allowing for the quick attack.
Offensive Rebound Strategy Ideas
Below I've included a template describing 5 very easy shooting drills and how to score each of them. This is taken from a context of gamifying the workouts a bit so players always have a score they are working to beat, but not having to do so always in a very repetitive and boring environment. The consistent scoring throughout the season and off-season nods toward Anson Dorrance and his notion of the "Competitive Cauldron," which is definitely worth looking into. This list was largely taken from a conversation on YouTube from John Leonzo and Coach Josh Loeffler. If anyone reads this and has some good shooting drills which they score please get share through the comments or on the Facebook Page! You can download the document and adapt it to suit you and your team.
