• Shell Drill - Phase 2

  • Purpose

    Stresses important defensive concepts.

  • Drill Setup

    Four defenders against four offensive players.

  • How It Works

    Phase 2 – Drake: When the ball is on a far wing, the offensive player on the opposite side of the key, executes an X-cut to the block. He then goes to the weakside wing and the player that was there moves up one spot. The defender should bump the cutter and then front him on the block.

  • Coaching Tips

    Communication and positioning are keys to defensive success – be sure to stress both during all phases of this drill.
