Position: Setter

The setter’s responsibility is to run the team’s offense and build up offensive scoring opportunities for the team. The setter plays both front row and back row, therefore s/he needs to be able to block, serve and play defense.

The setter needs to have good blocking skills because in front row position s/he plays against the opponent’s outside hitter who often carries big load of the attacking responsibility for the team.

The setter plays the right front or the right back position.
