Video Transcript: "ADDISON MUSSER: "Hey, my name is Addison from Captain Bill and I'm going to teach you how to set a volleyball. Setting is a very important part in the game of volleyball. Typically, you're going to set the ball to the hitter, where the hitter will hit it down on the other side of the court to get a point. In setting, you want to use your legs not just your wrists. Setting you want to bend your legs, keep your feet about shoulder width apart, one leg in front of the other, whichever leg you want to be in front, typically, I use my left leg in front. You want to bend your knees and have the ball above your head, push with your wrists and your legs, while facing your target. So, when you're setting the ball you want to keep your fingers very loose and relaxed, you don't want them tight. Before the ball gets under your hands you should shape the shape of the ball. So, as the ball is up in the air, my hands are already shaped in the shape of the ball. Also, if you were to miss the ball, the ball should hit you in the forehead. You don't want the ball to be back here, while you're setting, or up here, out here, you want the ball to be straight above your head so you can gain control of the ball. So, when you're setting you want to face your target to where you're setting, use your legs, bend your knees, ball above your head, use your legs and push out to set the ball to your hitter. That is how you set a volleyball."
