In volleyball, the setter is the primary shot caller. The different offensive plays are often communicated via hand signals. A setter will share with his teammates what he has in mind for the next play via hand signals. Communicating this way allows the hitters to be aware of their role on the next point.
Volleyball Hand Signal: Fast Plays Setters Run To Zone 4, Z3, and Z2 . Learn the volleyball hand signal used by setters to call fast offensive sets to run plays to their left, middle and right front hitters in zone 4, z3, and z2.
Middle Blocker. • 1 – Quick set above setter to the middle – Signal: One finger. • 2 – High set in the middle in front of setter 3-4 ftabove net – Signal: Two fingers. • 31- Quick set to middle hitter in the three position (same as 32 but faster) – Signal: Three fingers.
Using silent communication is one of the best ways to convey to hitters where they are going to hit. If you are a hitter, make sure you look at your setter before each play. Plays might change from point-to-point, so keep making sure you know what you are running. Additionally, know that if there is a bad pass, a trick play needs to turn to an audible and you need to call something easier to set, especially if the pass is far behind the 10 ft. line.
#4 – The setter calls this volleyball play by showing the outside hitter four fingers. This is a standard set to the outside. It is high and to the outside. The ball will be just inside the antenna so that the hitter can either hit the ball down the line or cross court.
The R-1 is responsible for this call; however, the R-2 can assist with a discreet signal if needed. If an official loses track of the setter’s position, he or she can watch to see if she retreats from the net or stays to block. This can assist in making a correct back row call.
This rule is the bain of every setter to have ever played the game. When hand setting it is very easy to double contact the ball. If the ball doesn’t enter or leave the hands at the exact same time an official will often call a double contact. A referee would indicate that a double touch has occurred by simply showing 2 up on one hand.
