  1. I have a question about the technique.
    I keep seeing many coaches that teach setting by flipping your hands forward to push the ball, along with the extension of the elbows. However, the coach at my club always told me the best way is to NOT flip your wrists forward, to actually go back on the wrist as the ball contacts the hands, then leave your wrist back and let the elbows do the pushing, since it prevents the set from spinning and is better for accuracy and control.

    The first time I heard about this way, I was skeptical, but after seeing how good and natural he made it look, which seemed like a higher quality set than when I saw people use the other technique, it convinced me. But I keep seeing everywhere else that they push with the wrist.

    Now I'm coaching a small local junior team, who are starting to learn how to set, and I'm conflicted about which technique is better to teach them.

    What are your thoughts on this?

  2. I've got a question, what is the advantage of a jump set over a standing set? Besides when I've noticed a lot of the time a jump set is used when the ball is being set just barely above the net when the spiker comes in for a hit

  3. Is it true that you can do more than just 3 hits in order for the ball to go over the net? ( i hope this question is clear for you ) and also my team has a issue of talking..idk if a ball is short long or anything so i need help with that..also i always get stuck into a situation where both me and a teammate gets to a ball but both of us call it yet still go..can you help me with this please?

  4. i hate how your intro blasted my ears and your voice is so hard to hear i have to crank up my speakers only to get blasted again with you ending..

  5. Hey. My name's Marco, I'm a Brazilian 25-year-old who's practicing to be a setter. I'd like to get more tips on how to set the ball more efficiently and precisely. Thanks!
