High-School Basketball|Drill
Shell drill is a foundational team defense exercise. This variation plays 4v4, where the offense sets up in a 4-out, no post. The offense is not allowed to dribble. The objective is to improve defensive communication, team defense spacing and "jumping to the pass".

Emphasize the defense always being in the passing lanes.

The read-and-react instills the habit for players to pass and cut-through. This results in ongoing player and ball movement on offense. This diagram is the initial skeleton of the Read-and-React out of a 5-Out offensive set.

This variation plays 4v4, where the offense sets up in a 4-out, no post. The offense is not allowed to dribble. On passes to the low-corner, the elbow man will cut through for additional variation.

Emphasize the defense always being in the passing lanes.
