What's the English term for setter positions in volleyball?


The main volleyball positions in volleyball are setter, outside hitter, libero, middle hitter, and opposite.

The setter position is usually considered the most important. The setter is like the quarterback.

The setter touches the ball more than any other player. The setter runs the offense and is the player "in charge" out on the court.

The best setters have mastered the basic skills in volleyball.

A good setter can make or break a team.

Of all the volleyball positions, no player affects the performance of a team more than the setter.

Volleyball positions and techniques for playing those positions effectively.


The setter is considered to be the most important position in volleyball. The setter on the team is the leader. Just like a quarterback in football, a setter in volleyball is in charge out on the court.

Jump Setting a Volleyball

The setter is the team leader that's involved in every play.

As volleyball positions are concerned, setter is a critical position that doesn't get the accolades or reap the awards that big hitters do.

Fans usually don't notice the setter on the court, but the setter is usually the primary reason a spiker can hit the ball to the floor.

Setters do what the name implies: The setter sets up their teammate for an attack. How well your team plays usually depends on how well your setter plays.


Most teams have players that specialize in passing. These players are...

There are many different types of sports but I will primarily talk about the following in this lesson:



"I play volleyball on our high school team."
"I play volleyball for our university."
"I play recreational volleyball."
"I play in a volleyball league run by the city."

"What position do you play?"

"I'm a setter for our team."
"I'm the outside hitter."
"I'm a back row specialist."
"I'm good at digging balls, so I play in the back."
"I'm the tallest in our team so I'm the middle blocker."

"Our team plays a two six rotation."

Two six rotation is a terminology used in volleyball where there are two setters. They take turns and the person who is in the back is the setter, so they should be opposite of each other in the lineup.

"I like to play beach volleyball. There is so much more action because it is only two of us."

Beach volleyball is a team sport played by two teams of two players on a sand court divided by a net. It has been an Olympic discipline since the 1996 Games.

As in indoor volleyball, the object of the game is to send the ball over the net and to ground it on the opponent's court, and to prevent the same effort by the opponent. A team is allowed up to three touches to return the ball across the net. The ball is put in play with a serve — a hit by the server from behind the rear court boundary over the net to the opponents. The rally continues until the ball is grounded on the playing court, goes "out", or is not returned properly.[1][2]

The team winning a rally scores a point and serves to start the following rally. The four players serve in the same sequence throughout the match, changing server each time a rally is won by the receiving team. Beach volleyball originated at the Outrigger Canoe Club, on the shores of Waikiki Beach (in Hawaii, USA), and has achieved...
