This is video #005 in a series that I'm calling "Volleyball Setter Moves." The purpose for this series is to draw attention to what setting in volleyball act...
Deceptive setting techniques help confuse the block and puts added pressure on the defense. The setter position is a very important position because every time a team is running a play, the setter is responsible for the teams second contact (setting an attacker).
Player starts in read defense position in right back and releases to the net. Player hits slant at net, hands up, eyes on where ball would be coming from, step left/ right to target and cover. Repeat with 1 step off the net. Repeat with 3 steps off the net.

The setter plays both front row and back row, therefore s/he needs to be able to block, serve and play defense. The setter needs to have good blocking skills because in front row position s/he plays against the opponent’s outside hitter who often carries big load of the attacking responsibility for the team. The setter plays the right front or the right back position Middle Blocker (Center, Middle, Middle Hitter) Middle blockers main responsibility is to stop the opponent’s offense.
