How to Play Volleyball : Rotation Strategies in Volleyball

Hello, this is Keith Sewell with Expert Village.
In this clip, we’re going to talk about rotational strategy in volleyball. There are three main
strategies used in rotation in volleyball; they are the 4-2, the 6-2, and the 5-1. In
a 4-2, there are two setters that are going to be used in the rotation but they only set
when they are in the front row, and they only have the option of setting two hitters because
they’re one of the front row players. In a 6-2, you have two setters used in this rotation
as well. But in this one, the setter in the back row will take responsibility to set up
at the net, allowing the front row setter to hit. That’s usually the right side. This
way there will be three hitters on the front row and more options on offense. It’s much
harder for the defense to block three hitters than it is for them to block two hitters.
The last rotation strategy is a 5-1, and when a team runs a 5-1, one setter sets the whole
way around on the rotation. This allows the team to get accustomed to the setting styles
of the setter, but there won’t always be three hitters on the front row…only on one half
of the rotation. Also when a setter is back row, he cannot jump and hit the ball over
the net. On a high pass it may be really hard to set the ball without having it go to the
other side off his hands.

    U rotate when your team gets to serve, 1 position clockwise for the whole team.

    A point of clarification is that I think he says that a front row player must be in front of ALL back row players and a back row player must be behind ALL front row players. Consulting the USA Volleyball rulebook, rule reads "Each back-row player must be positioned further back from the net that the corresponding front row player". This means that if you are left back, you need to be behind left front but may be ahead of middle front since MF is not your corresponding FR player.

    @volleychick135246 well basicly, when running a six two, you basicly rotate in a circle. But the problem is when rotated to a position that u dont play, you have to quickly change positions with the person that playes the position that you are supposed to play. That happens right when they recieve the ball.
