One commentator blames hitting errors against key opponents for the failure of the US women at the 2015 World Cup. But what caused all those errors?
A recent article speaks to the preferred qualities of a good setter - both mental and physical. I add some comments of my own.
Who's the best choice to take the second ball if the setter is required to take the first one on defense?
The last week was more about relaxation than volleyball, but I did managed to squeeze in a meeting with the club's board.
Traditionally, setters are told to keep the ball off the net to give hitters the best attacking opportunity. Is that really the best way to go, though?
This is a good small-sided game-play exercise that gets every player lots of touches and works especially on transition hitting.
To what degree can and do volleyball coaches call plays from the bench? Perhaps an even better question to ask is should they?
If you think about it, the setter in volleyball may be the premier single position in sports - not the football quarterback which often gets that nod.
