I coach 2 youth club teams and I've recommended this rebounder to anyone that will listen. I have a 10 year old son and a 9 year old daughter and they have both used a Tekk Rebounder for the past year and a half. It allows them to work on very important aspects of their skills without the need of a partner. Both of my kids used to spend time juggling, and there are benefits to juggling, but using a rebounder improves the ability to receive and trap the ball much more, in my opinion. My girls team has 11 players, and 7 of the parents purchased a Tekk rebounder as Christmas presents this past year. The girls that have the rebounder have improved much more compared to the girls that didn't get one. You can buy a cheaper rebounder, but you get what you pay for. I bought another brand rebounder a couple of years ago that cost around $150, and it was a huge waste of money. The Tekk rebounder has the perfect tension in the net that delivers the ball back to the player at the perfect speed. The Tekk also allows you to adjust the angle and work on tons of other excercises. I highly recommend it. If your kids will dedicate the time, they WILL benefit from this rebounder.Spending just 10-15 minutes a day will improve their receiving skills and touch on the ball immensely in just a short time.
