The Coach tosses the ball from the front left position, about 10 feet from the net into the net at medium speed.

The player is in the setting position, facing the left side area and as the volleyball hits the net, arms are in a passing position and horizontal to the net.

Your goal is to watch the volleyball from the coach to the net and once it comes off the net at an instant you are ready to pass it in an upward motion as if to set a spiker on the left side, generally in between where the coach is standing and the net.
