These volleyball skills and drills are for setters and non setters who need to get setting repetitions for all different kinds of sets including the high ball, the two ball, the one set, the "hut", the "Go" and even the "5".
I show you how we do these drills in our class but these are great drills you can do at home, by yourself or with a partner or even against your garage.
All the players break into groups of two with partners and a ball.
One player is on the ten foot line facing their partner on the end line.
They begin overhand setting the ball until I call out the volleyball "set" they are to perform.
The first call is usually - a "4" set back and forth.
The "4" is the high ball set setters set to the left front player. Both players set the "4" back and forth until I make the next call.
Things I'm looking for:
Not only that, I don't make the next call until I see there's consistency in all the players performing the "4" set.
The next call...
Without stopping the ball partners are required to listen to the next call and perform the next set...without letting the ball stop or drop between them.
Set a "2" to yourself and a "hut" to your partner.
A "hut" is an outside, second tempo set that's lower than the "4", has some arc and no peak which at its highest point is 4-5 feet above the net.
After two minutes of doing these reps the next call would be...
Set a "1" to yourself and a "Go" to your partner.
These are first tempo sets, which means these are the fastest paced sets a hitter can hit.
The "one" goes to the middle blocker while the "go" is set outside to the left side hitter.
Setting The "Go" and the "One"
What's the "Go" set?
A fast set to zone 4 travels nearly 2 - 3 feet above the net with no arc or peak at a high speed then the "Hut" or the "Go".
What's the "One" set?
A quick set usually given to the middle blocker that's one foot above the top of the net, usually set in Zone 3.
Set a "2" to yourself and a "side set a 4" to your partner.
What's the "side" set?
Players make a quarter turn to their right or left before setting the ball over their shoulder to the intended target.
What's the "4" set?

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
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.
