Why Use Basketball Training Pads?

Basketball training pads are excellent to use to simulate contact with players. Basketball in a contact sport and players need to learn to take contact and finish plays when getting hit by defenders. Even if a foul is called the offensive player’s goal should be to make the shot and get the foul for an And 1 situation.

You can add contact to layup lines, rebounding drills, dribbling drills, screen drills, and just about any type of drill you would do in a game. You can even use them during stationary dribbling drills to push on players so they stay low, have a wide stance, and stay on balance. Players quickly learn to play on balance once they get pushed with the pad a few times. They learn to play stronger and own their space.

What the Boss Says Chris Hungerford HoopsKing.com CEO   I have used the Toughness Training pad for many years. As a coach you can quickly find out who can handle contact and who can't.  The majority of kids I've coached don't like contact.  I used the pad during layups and just tap the kids with the pad to get them used to being hit and putting their focus on making the layup instead of the contact. The goal of using this pad is to get players used to contact so that it doesn't bother them in games. They will also learn to lower their center of gravity and become more explosive because when someone is pushing on you you can't stand up.  There was a funny instance when I was using the pad with a player who had not practice vs. contact before and the first time I bumped her with the pad she went down.  We both laughed but after that she didn't go down again.  She learned quickly to get lower and be on balance. Here is how I have used the Toughness Training Pad over the years: Stationary Dribbling - Pushing on kids to get them lower in their stance and lock in their core Full Court Dribbling - Bodying up the ball handler to get them to protect the ball Post Play - Bodying up an offensive post player to get them to really learn to get the ball down low Shooting - holding up the pad to make kids shoot over a defender and create a higher arc This pad is much better than the big blocky pads out there because you can move up and down court with this pad easily since you wear it on your forearm. You can keep one hand free.  There have been many times I've been wearing the pad and will call for the ball and demonstrate something  while still wearing the pad.  I don't have to put a pad down and then pick it back up.  I don't miss a beat when I wear the Toughness Training pad.
