Do you have a good setting drill?

Blocker Movement Setting Drill

To help your setter develop their peripheral vision, and to take advantage of the clues they pick up from watching the movements of opposing blockers, here's a good drill:

Have one coach toss a ball from CB to the setter, at the net. On the other side, a middle blocker is set up directly opposite the setter. Just before the setter makes contact with the ball, the blocker takes a step left or right. The setter must then set the ball in the opposite direction of the blocker's movement.

This conditions setters to be aware of what's going on on the other side of the net, and make more intelligent decisions based on that information.
