How can I block better?

Effective Blocking, Part 2

After watching the pass, turn your attention to the setter, trying to pick up clues to where the set is likely to go.

If the ball is far in from of the setter, the set will usually go forward. If they try to move to a place where they can get the ball closer to the center of the head, it will likely be a back set.

Some setters have a tendency to use a jump set when setting middle.

Watch the setter throughout the game, and you'll find you can often pick up valuable clues as to where the ball is going, even before the set is made.

Setters are human, and get into rhythms and certain body positions when they're setting. Watch and learn your opponent's body language. You can use that knowledge to your advantage.
