  • Setup

    Start with a feeder (A), a setter (B), and two or three lines of hitters (C and D).
  • Step 1

    The feeder (A) feeds the ball to the setter (B), who may set any one of the available hitters. The hitter performs a run-up and hits the ball over the net.
    The hitter should collect their own ball after hitting.
    Hitters should always be ready to hit, and call for the ball from the setter.
    Higher level setters should try to avoid telegraphing which direction they are going to set.
  • Step 2

    The feeder becomes the new hitter in the position that was last set, and a new feeder takes their place. Repeat.
    You may also add blockers to 'keep the hitters honest'.
    If you only have two lines of hitters, allow the setter to be a front-court setter (and tip the occasional ball).
