When it comes to setting I think everyone should have a good touch and feel for the ball, regardless of what position you play in.


Debbie and I played in the Major League Volleyball League. Debbie was on LA Starlites and I was on the New York Liberties the first time a pro womens league for indoor volleyball was established in the US. 

Players who are non-setters should regularly work on setting technique getting regular reps with a partner or against the wall.

They should also remember to develop arm strength so they can practice setting long distances.

In other words, work on the ability to set the ball long distances away, from antenna to antenna or from one side of the court to the other so that, when that moment comes, you know THAT moment...when your setter is running for a ball and she twists her ankle.

And there's no one else to set the ball on your team.  Well, in your case, there actually is someone, right? 

Someone who's capable of setting the ball to the outside hitter because they practiced it already. How about if that someone were you? 

When coaching volleyball skills we do many types of setting drills for accuracy, to build strength and for consistency.
