The Ten Commandments of Intermediate VB

  • The second hit is the setter's ball unless the setter yells for help. Even if the ball is more towards you than the setter.
  • Don't bump the first hit over the net, unless you have to.
  • Unless you have a good reason not to, set the second ball, rather than hitting it over the net.
  • This is not advanced, don't expect perfect sets.
  • This is not advanced and not-overly competitive, if someone is not a great hitter, set it to them anyway occasionally.
  • The setter is most likely not going to hit the first ball (unless it is going to land on his or her head, or perhaps in 3's if the 2 non-setters are having trouble covering the court).
  • If spiking the set, be pretty sure you're going to get it over.
  • On tough plays, just get it over (and in). On tough plays before the 3rd hit, just get it "up".
  • If you're the setter and aren't going to get to the second hit, yell for help.
  • Have fun.
