How can I assess setters?

Assessing Setters, Step One

Setters are the quarterbacks of your team, so you have to evaluate potential setters on many levels. But the first is their hand-eye coordination and ability to put the ball where they want it to go.

You can assess potential setters' hands with some simple tests:

1-Have setter stand at net, have a player toss balls at them, which they set high outside to a player, standing at a spot where a hitter would hit from, but instead of hitting, they simply catch the ball. After 25 sets, record the number of sets that went perfectly to the catcher.

2-Run the same drill, but have the player backset high outside. Record the results.

There are many other factors involved in finding your setter, but this is step one.
