Volleyball Setting

Volleyball setting is an important skill that requires good hand & body positioning. Setters need to get to the volleyball quickly and then accurately place it for the hitter. Myosource Kinetic Bands are a great resistance training tool for volleyball setters to use while they practice; allowing them to strengthen their lower body while practicing specific volleyball setting skills. Stronger legs, hips, and glutes can help improve lateral movement and quickness which are essential to good body positioning.

What is a set in volleyball?

A volleyball set is an over the head pass to a hitter so they are able to spike the volleyball over the volleyball net. A hitter wants a setter they can trust to put the ball where it needs to be when it is supposed to be there. If a volleyball hitter and setter are not in rhythm with each other then the hits will not be successful. Volleyball setters have to be able to move around the court with ease. The volleyball setter's goal should be to get in the direct line of the volleyball in order to set it accurately and timely for their hitter. Position makes a huge difference in setting a volleyball. The goal is for a volleyball setter to get to the ball quickly, square up, and use the proper hands and body position to set it.
