Research shows that the more game-like your drills are in practice, the more carry over the drills will have to matches.
Setting drills depend on different angles of the pass. In all, Coach Christy Johnson-Lynch demonstrates 14 basic, intermediate and advanced drills.
These drills work on blocking and setting, release from serve and receive position, how to read the opponent at the net and make the appropriate play, decision-making, 'set up opposite' the direction of the pass and much more.
These drills mirror the activity-level of setters in matches; these drills will lead to better play.

3X Olympic Men's Coach
"In every rotation, expose your best serve receivers!"
Bill Neville builds this entire 2009 AVCA convention presentation around this law and shares with you innumerable ways to expose your serve receive strengths and hide weaknesses.
While exposing the best passer, Neville shows how to hide the setter as well as hiding weaker passers.
Neville feels that getting a quality hit on the first pass is imperative to setting up your offense. He specifically points out what are typically the two potentially weakest rotations and presents strategies for optimizing serve receive success when in these challenging rotations.
A serve receive game of 4v2 throughout various rotations to drill serve receive is played, and with each point, Neville offers insight into the "what happened and why it happened" for each result. He then breaks down a server's sequence checklist to add more focus and purpose to each and every serve.
This presentation offers specific examples of how to best set up formations that will return the highest percentage for first pass success.

with Russ Rose,
Penn State University Head Coach;
Russ Rose's collection of unique drills will spark your team's competitive fire!
Great fun volleyball drills for stressing the importance of teamwork and letting your team play the game of volleyball versus working on individual skills.
Each drill uses the "Wash Scoring System:" teams play a series of two-ball rallies and must win both balls to score a point, otherwise, it's a wash and no points are scored.
This allows you to handicap the scoring of the games and control how the balls are delivered into play when you have a great deal of talent on one side of the net and lesser talent on the other side.
These fun volleyball drills also allow you to separate your starters and force them to compete against each other.
