How can I become a better setter?

Setting the Back Row, Part 3

A third thing to remember when setting the back row is to do everything you can to make it obvious who you're setting. It may sound funny, but if you just put the ball up high, but in no particular direction, you may get to see a spectacular collision as two of your teammates both make an attempt to crush your set at the same time.

If you have to, call out who the set is for as soon as you send it into the air. That will avoid confusion. You're the quarterback of the team, remember, and it's your job to keep things organized.
