The first thing you should do is invest in a device that creates rebounding opportunities. So that rebounds can be practiced over and over again.
I would recommend the JB basketball rebounder to start.
The JB Basketball Rebounder is used as the preferred training device for various high school, college, and professional teams, the JB Rebounder is revolutionizing the way teams train for one of the most important stats in basketball.
The patented rebounder is the result of years of work by established inventor, Jack Brown. The JB Rebounder’s design creates the most authentic rebound in any situation, providing for the maximum training effectiveness, this fact is why it is currently endorsed by former Orlando Magic center Greg Kite.
Manufactured in the United States, the rebounder is made out of a durable plastic through a process also used to make toys for rhinos at theme parks.
Still the JB Rebounder remains light enough in weight to not damage the gym floor if dropped. The JB Rebounder fits all standard 18″ rims and is lightweight and durable. It also has no clamps which accounts for easy installation and removal.
Next you will need to focus on skills like jumping and boxing out.
To help your players improve jumping you can work on their form. There are many free videos that provide information on jump form on the web.
As for learning boxing out skills and techniques I would suggest watching professional coaches videos.
