This is video 2 in the series on beach volleyball setting technique with gold medal beach coach Steve Anderson. In this video Steve gets very detailed on how to set a beach volleyball.
Coaching points and advice include:
- Hands are in the ready position before setting
- Arms at a 90 Degree Angle so you can move and easily bring them into position easily
- Bring the hands straight up all the way on top of your head. Not just the forehead! This allows the shoulders to release verses if the hands are just on the forehead where they will lock up and you get a dipping action with your setting technique which is bad. You want to be able to push al the way through to your target without your shoulders locking up.
- To get rid of the double contact on setting you need to just make sure you have equal pressure on both hands and that the hands are on the same plane.
- Steve shares the slight inside shoulder tilt secret, where the inside shoulder, the one closer to the net is slightly lower than the one close to the serve line. What this does is help you push the ball towards and on the net.
- Shoulders and the hands need to be on parallel planes so that you get equal pressure and don’t double.
