Youth Basketball Drills - Shell Drill

Great drill for teaching team defensive techniques.

Four players assume offensive positions at guards, wing and corner positions. Four players assume defensive positions based on the following:

  1. If your man has the ball play the ball - push to sidelines, no penetration.
  2. If your man is one pass away - play deny stance in the passing lane.
  3. If your man is two passes away - play in the key in help position.
  4. If your man is more than two passes away - play on the split line in help position.

On ball movement all defensive players move to the correct position. On receiving the pass the offense must always catch and face. When learning this drill have the offense hold the ball for two-second count before passing.
