Setter Ready Position

When positioned near the net, the setter should always begin by standing in an athletic stance, ready to move any direction.

Key Point: Always focus on "turning into the ball" as you set.

For example, start by facing the ball. As the ball comes in, make a turn into the ball as you set. If you ever observe a great setter, you will likely notice a "turn to the right" each time they make a move to set the ball.

Keys to the Ready Position:

° Start with the back to the net

° Right foot is positioned forward pointing toward left-front

° Setter turns to the right as the ball crosses mid-line

° When releasing to the net, sprint-shuffle-sprint

° Work to establish a setting rhythm
