Abstract

Utilizing a variety of set placement and disguising the type of set that is being executed is essential in high levels of play in volleyball. Such deception is mandatory for a team to allow their hitter to spike against either no blockers or a single blocker which enhances the offense's chance for success. This study was undertaken to examine biomechanical differences and similarities in executing the high outside set (HOS) and the two-set (2-S). Several quantitative investigation have been conducted on overhead setting, but few have included the analysis of a fast, low set variation such as the 2-S.
