Setting is one of the most exciting skills of volleyball, it's like the quarterback in a football game.
The hand position needs to be above the forehead. Thumbs should be close to one another with wrists back and somewhat down. Elbows should be slightly in front of the shoulders. The hands should be in the shape of a volleyball.
The movement that follows is the player extends their arms after contacting the ball, pushing it to the desired target. Arms should finish fully extended.
During the off season, take out your volleyball and practice setting!
One of the greatest rewards is sharing your knowledge of volleyball with the younger players!
Volunteering for the USYVL is not only easy and fun, but you also get community service hours credit and why not do it teaching something you love.
