I was playing this weekend when my partner posted this video. I thought it displayed several excellent lessons for indoor volleyball setting that I feel the majority of coaches often miss, either because they do not play beach or simply haven’t been exposed to enough beach volleyball. Now, given that setting has been statistically determined…
This video features Alan Knipe reviewing important volleyball setting “Verbal cues” for setters and non-setters. Great coaches have the ability for players to understand and remember complex motor patterns with easy to understand verbal cues or keys. This video demonstrates why Alan is one of the best coaches in the United States.
This video is from a youth volleyball private lessons with two players in 1st and 3 rd grade, volleyballtots who are learning the game. In this video the players are being coached on setting.
In this VolleyballTots Youth Private Coaching Lessons Andor Gyulai the owner of volleyball1on1 teaches two young players age 5 the skill of setting. The video includes powerful verbal cues, plus other coaching lessons on working and coaching volleyballtots.
This setting drill is final drill in the progression of setting drills and the focus is on decision making and dumping the ball. The players approach from area 4 and then based upon the pass have to decide are they dumping or are they setting. Chris often changes the drills in the series based upon what he see as the setters needs for that week but he always trys to get at least 1 decision making drill into the setter warm up drills.
The next progression of the warm up skill building setting drills is the two setters approaching from rotations 1, 3 and 4 in serve receive type format. Each setter sets one ball and then repeats. 4 Balls each for a “In System”, “Medium”, “Out of System” pass. Focus is getting their feet set then making the same moves and footwork to the ball.
In this video Chris Austin starts by explaining how they run setting drills and clinics. Then the video follows with a progression of the setting drills with a multi-ball stationary drill. The multi-ball stationary drill basically allows the setter to get a feel of just setting, pulling together what they did in drill 1 – where the focus was just hands, and drill 2 – where the focus was just feet. The drill consist of coach tossing 8 balls to the players and the setter setting front or back with an “In system” toss.
This early practice volleyball setting drill works on just footwork patterns when setting. This drill should be performed before practice or while the rest of the team sets up the nets and warms up. You will notice hand position (Drill 1 in series) is broken up from footwork (Drill 2 in the series). This drill teaches detailed info on volleyball setting footwork.
This video features one of our favorite youth volleyball setting drills. We encourage all youth coaches – high school and club to use this or similar drills during the early part of their practice to help develop their setters. Chris is a 2 time NCAA champion starting setter under two of the best coaches in men’s volleyball (John Speraw and David Kniffin). On top of this he coached club for 4 years while starting and winning at UCI – University of California Irvine.

Proper volleyball setting can be the make or break factor for just about any volleyball team at any level. Often times the development of this absolutely essential but deceptively tricky volleyball skill is neglected…but it shouldn’t be. Learn from 3 Time NCAA Champ Stein Metzger.
