Varsity Volleyball Sets All Players Should Know


Different sets have different heights and are delivered to different locations along the net.

A combination of sets that are directed to various zones along the net are called volleyball plays. 

For example a four set is a very high ball that's delivered outside to Zone 4 and the five set is a high ball that's delivered backwards over the head of the setter to Zone 2.
