  • Mary E. Ridgway

Abstract

Setting techniques have received considerable attention in the volleyball literature. However, universal agreement on the proper or "best" method of executing the setting technique has not been attained. Additionally most skill write-ups focus on front setting with scant attention paid to back setting or other types of set variations. The published resources vailable to the volleyball coach and player are replete with the subjective and often conflicting information of the various authors, e.g. Scates (1984); Gozansky (1983); Schaafsma, Heck and Sarver (1985).
