Box Jumps Basketball Drill

Box Jumps Basketball Drill


Box jumps are great because they give you something to see and let you know how high you need to jump each time. If you were just jumping straight up in the air with no box, there is not a set height to aim for. It is important when you start that you pick a challenging box for you, but make sure that you are safe. Vertical jump basketball drills like this will really challenge the player to become more explosive and athletic.
