To encourage proper setting technique, keeping the head up and developing good footwork.

Set and Follow Volleyball Setting Drill
Set & Follow


  • Divide your players into groups of 3
  • Give each group a ball
  • Have each group form a triangle


  1. One player will start by tossing the ball to the top of the triangle.
  2. Once they toss the ball, they will follow their toss running on the outside behind the other player.
  3. The second player will then set the ball to the third player and will follow the ball running behind the third player.
  4. The third player will set the ball back to the first player who will now be at the top of the triangle.
  5. The ‘set and follow’ cycle continues until the group can put together 10 good consecutive sets.
