How To Set In Volleyball
If you want to meet hot girls in scantly clad bikinis but need something to attract their attention towards you without making a scene; we suggest you learn how to set in volleyball so you can come off looking super hot with your newfound sport skills. Setting is not as glamorous as spiking, but usually the setter is Captain of the team and everyone follows your lead. Girls like that, too.
- Bump set. Place one foot in front of the other, bend your knees and stay low. Cup one hand around the other to where both thumbs touch each other. Use the underside flat part of your forearm as a platform for the volleyball to land. As the ball reaches you lift up with both legs as you make contact with the volleyball. That lift carries the volleyball upward, not your arms. With practice you’ll control your aim to set to any player on the court.
- Overhand. Take a few steps toward the pass and let the ball fall towards your head. Place your hands out, arms bent slightly and form a triangle with your hands. Keep fingers from touching. Your thumb, index finger and middle finger actually set the volleyball. Your ring ringer and pinky help guide the ball in the right direction. Plant your feet right before you set the volleyball, bend low then lift upward and tap the volleyball with your fingers. The power again to lift the ball all lies within the lift of your legs.
- Jump set. Same technique as the overhand set but after you plant your feet you jump upward toward the ball, arc your back and bend your legs. Almost the same principle as the spike. Set the ball at the peak of your jump. This speeds your offensive play and keeps the other team guessing where you will aim the volleyball.
- Quick set. Before the ball is served over the net you call a play for a quick set. Once the ball is passed to you after the serve you quickly complete an overhand or jump set but barely give the ball clearance over the net. One of your teammates is already up in the air and will spike the ball immediately after it clears the net. This surprise attack does not give players on the other team a chance to set up to block the ball.
- Back handed set. Same technique as and overhand and jump set except you arc backwards even more and set the volleyball to the player behind you. This surprise attacks catches the other team with their drawers down. Figuratively speaking, of course.
- Left-handed/right-handed spikers. How you set in volleyball is also determined whether you are setting to a right-handed or left-handed player. If their dominate arm is closest to you then you want a simple high arc close to you and the net. If their dominate arm is away from you then you must set the ball further out so that the volleyball crosses over their entire body toward their dominate arm. Keep that in mind while game is in play.
Volleyball’s a fun sport and to enjoy it even more we suggest you learn how to set with these techniques to show off your competitive spirit. Once you’ve mastered how to set in volleyball we think you might just get your wish and a scantly clad girl in a bright red bikini will notice you. We’re just hoping.
