Volleyball setters, can actually see their left side hitters and their middle hitters because they are facing their zone 4 on their side of the court, but because they always line up this way, their back is to their right side hitter.
To set the ball behind you to your right side hitter or deliver any balls to zone 2 you will do so by backsetting the ball back over your head.
A Volleyball Setters Training Checklist
To set, you use your legs to get your body directly lined up underneath the ball.
When the ball comes down it should come down right to your outstretched arms into your turned up hands, that's where you want to place yourself as a setter, underneath the path of the ball as it comes down from the pass.
The palms of your hands are open and in place to cradle the ball and your arms push the ball back up to the ceiling if you're setting a high ball or facing your target if you're setting the ball outside
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
Volleyball Positions: Where Should You Go From Here?
For a left handed volleyball setter who receives a good pass, the ball will get to your dominant hand first, which means that you can dump the ball faster and disguise it more, making it difficult for the defense to see the tip coming.
