By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

University of Louisville Head Coach, Anne Kordes, goes over the most popular system in volleyball which utilizes only 1 setter and 5 attackers. This formation demands a very good setter who is the team leader, possessing knowledge of volleyball strategy, enthusiasm and the ability to provide clear communication to the team.

Coach Kordes demonstrates multiple 5-1 options on the rotations following receiving the serve. The coach explains which option to select based on the talent at each position. In the 5-1, the hitters rotate to the front row with the setter. The hitters to the right and the left of the setter are the team’s strongest players.
