Tip dunks, just like anything else in basketball, take practice, and if you put the work into it, you will be able to develop an instinct for the basketball and where it will go.
Teach your players to go hard to the rim, and if they can’t dunk the ball back, at least get their hands on it and try to tip it back in. Great rebounders in basketball are built through spending time practicing the skill. So make time during your practices and training to do basketball rebounding drills.
