FIVB Seminar - Setter


Volleyball England is delighted to announce that two technical seminars will take place on the 4 June – 6 June 2015 at FIVB/CEV Regional Volleyball Development Centre – Kettering (ENG) - The Outside Hitter/Serve and The Setter

The FIVB Setting technical seminar will be delivered by a renowned and internationally recognised FIVB tutor. You will come away with an in-depth knowledge of the skills, techniques and training that underpin successful setting – and more importantly how to coach this in your athletes.

About the Seminar

The technical seminar will be a combination of in-depth video analysis of world-leading players, technique theory, on court practicals and an opportunity to learn the drills and practices being delivered for setters across the world . Additionally to this, the seminar will publicise the recent sport science findings, practical experiences of successful coaches and other experts.

By the end of this seminar you should learn:

  • How to analyse a setter’s movement
  • Technical setting exercises – basic, advanced
  • Training principles
  • The physical preparation and physical testing used by top international coaches for setters
  • Setting strategies
  • Impact of international development on tactics and techniques

As a coach you will leave the seminar with the expertise to transform your training and performance of the team you are working with and as a player you will come away from the seminar much more competent and aware you what is required to be a top setter.

Full syllabus/schedule can be found in the documents section on the right hand side.
