    I’m a senior setter in high shool about to start my college career in the NAIA and when you brought up “the paradox of pressure and perfection” I can’t even stress enough how real this is. The mind is a crazy thing that I’m constantly trying to battle my thoughts and tiny subconscious thoughts that get in the way from me being able to give my best hitters the best sets. Thank you for this video!

    My college basketball coach pulled me aside on day during a terrible practice:
    Coach: when are you “most on your game?”
    Me: during [casual] pick up games.
    Coach: how much are “thinking” while you’re playing ?
    Me: 😟 I don’t, I just play 🤯

    I actually cannot agree more w/ this haha. I started setting about a year ago and back then doing a back set was the most daunting thing. I tried to make the perfect set 24/7 and it'd just end up being absolutely terrible.Later on I literally just stopped giving 10 ****'s and just starting setting back in games. Improves quite quickly 😉

    This is honestly the best advices I've heard. You put your finger right on the problems I have on the court : the pressure and the self confidence. Every time I have a fraction of a second to make a set (after a block for instance) it's almost a perfect set. On the other hand, when I have a perfect pass, I'm starting to feel the pressure and my set is far, far away from perfect…

    I got to learn how to let it go… And to know that I'm not alone having that feeling is a great start.

    Thanks a lot man!

    Are you saying not to bump set all the time. When you bump set you won’t get called for a double and lift so I think you should bump set. What’s the downside to bump setting

    I think it's also important to note that really good partners to a setter can inspire confidence IN the setter, when they are able to "put away" a non-perfect set. I'm a middle-blocker indoor 95% of the time, and timing a 'perfect 1' play can be tricky with different setters and rotations. So when I jump to hit a quick and the ball is too low, or too high, or behind be, etc. I make every effort to get the ball over, let alone a kill, and keep the play going. The setter can take that non-perfect set personally and then struggle after that. The most important thing I do for a setter when a non-perfect set happens is laugh to help them shake it off, and tell them "Hey, as long as you get the ball near me we'll make something happen. Keep setting!" This inspires my setters to know I don't need that perfect set to make plays. I just need them to keep setting, and to have fun. And when we DO connect with a perfect or near-perfect play, the cheers and joy afterwards only boosts their confidence more.

    I couldn't agree more about the psychological element of setting. I have been playing beach volleyball for about 2.5 years and it took me this long to realise that I shouldn't be looking for a perfect set, but be comfortable in the knowledge that my partner can hit it when it is in the right area. That's exactly when it all comes together. Here is a short video of us training in the sunny Johannesburg, South Africa: https://youtu.be/RTEySy-NqOw.

    most of these tipps basically affect you in any play your mind has the time to think of what you are doing. To me as a Wing Spiker i mostly feel these "pressure moments" when trying to perfectly throw the ball for a jump serve. the more i try the worse it gets, while the beste serves are actually in games where there is almost no pressure at all. Confidence is the way to win. Good Video.

    These are good points. It's all about what u said on the last point experience and all the other stuff just comes naturally. Start by lifting and doubling play with people who wont care and u will slowly improve and eventually try not lifting and doubling and it comes naturally. Experience is key just set alot also dont allow others to tell u ur sets are bad be confident.

    I totally agree with this. When I entered a particular club, I wasn't expecting to be setter, probably a tech hitter or a libero (i'm pretty short). Until the coach asked me if I can set because they lacked a second setter. So i said, you know what, screw it, I'll just give it a go. And when I played in drop-in sessions, most people like to hit, so here again I said screw it, I'll just set. Overtime, I naturally just became a setter.

    I'm new to sand volleyball (started in dec 2018) when I moved to Phoenix, AZ. I've been playing for fun events and a few draw style 4s tournaments but have had no luck and have placed way at the bottom of the rankings. I watched this video yesterday right before my random draw blitz vb tournament and placed 4th individually out of 16 people. 1 month ago I played the same style event and was dead last. Last night I walked into the court and said "F it. Money is on the line but I don't care cause I'm here to have fun and get better." That mentality change made all the difference because I played the middle back like a boss and made it to the winners circle. Love the vids and love learning a skill from here and taking it to the courts!!

    Thanks for putting these great ideas out there! I can totally relate to the pressure vs perfection paradox—shank the pass to the back, and you get a perfect set from me. Give me a perfect pass with pressure, and there's a 50/50 chance my hitter will have to chase it down. In the same vein, this was completely helpful to me for understanding a bothersome part of my mental game: when I play with a partner of lower skill level than myself, I fall apart under the expectation that I'm the more skilled player and should be able to "carry" him/her. Give me a player of better skill level than myself and I tend to rise to the occasion, make great strategic plays, see the ball and just do everything right. Some days I wonder if it's just the other player carrying me, but I've had a few people confirm that they've seen this pattern in my play. Hopefully this knowledge can help me kick the pressure of my expectations to the curb and just play my best all the time!

  71. Dimitar Dimitrov Posted on May 22, 2019 at 6:26 am

    Bump sets are better because there are no option for double contact or lift/carry faults. In tough hardcore scenarios where you are tired, the heat is a lot, your fingers are wet, there is wind etc. Then ball could slip between your fingers. 1 mistake during hand set and you give free point to your oponents. Bump sets can be just as good as hand sets. Plus you can set the ball with one hand. Poke the ball or hit the ball with fist. Otherwise hand sets are good in some cases. Another advantage of bumpsets is that you can set 1st balls which means your parther can strike the ball towards the oponent side of the court at the second hit, not on the third. This makes unique attacks. While you cant hand set 1st balls on beach volleyball. Much sharper and faster passes can be done that way. Also you can set the ball with any part of your body. Not only with hands.
