    Shoot-set and Quick-set Combo
    I have not seen this yet, but I haven't seen everything... lol

    I was thinking that these two misdirection sets could be used in a single play because the quick-set causes the opponent to position, dig-in, and focus on the quick-set hitter, but the ball could be shoot-set along the net for anyone along the net to pop down anywhere. Since the opponent has committed to the quick-set defensive positions a point would be very probable.

    Opinions please :)

    Well, you could run a quick and a shoot at the same time, but it's usually not a very good option. If you do full the block with the quick, there is no reason to throw a fastball outside as well. The middle already did their job and pulled the middle block off your OH. As long as your setter doesn't throw a high ball outside the middle block should not be able to affect your OH.

    Good luck,

    I suppose it all depends on the level that you play at. From the types of questions you are asking, I would guess that you are a high school coach who hasn't been exposed to a lot of volleyball (maybe you coach another sport and picked this up in the offseason, etc.).

    The sophistication of your offense completely depdends on the ability of your primary passers, and your setter. I have the feeling that if you had the kind of team where the kids passed nails, and the setter's hands were nectar, you wouldn't have to ask this question.

    So here are a few things to consider:

    1. 90% of high school teams can get away with running your basic 4-ball outside, 1 or 2 in the middle, and a back two for an entire game. If you have a high school team that has mastered this, then maybe I should be asking questions of YOU.

    2. Most teams at this level can get away with lofting a 4-5 ball to the outside because the middle blocker on the other side will not have the foresight and/or footwork to adjust in time.

    3. Once you get to the higher levels(I played Div.I ball), and you have 6'6" middles on every team, they are going to be able to recover to a high outside ball after the quick in the middle. This is mostly because at the height these guys are at, they hardly have to leave their feet on a quick set.

    4. The problem with calling a quick in the middle, and then a 31(quick shoot) to the outside, at the lower levels, is what you do when you don't get a great pass. Your outside hitter is typically your bailout in these situations, and now you have no where to go.
