Don't block the setter. It sounds obvious, but how many times do you see a 5' 3" setter at the net, getting ready to set, and the 6'2" blocker on the other side goes up to block?
You gain nothing, and lose at least a step in getting outside to help block if you go up with the setter. Stay down and concentrate on the blasters, instead.

I do not agree with this comment I am a middle blocker and blocking the setter is an easy below 10 foot line block. If the setter is front row and you see her tipping or the ball is close enough for you to swipe it down definitly go for it. Go get 'em! Good luck.
