You'll gain an understanding of how to attack with a quick middle, multiple back-row attackers and an offensive-minded setter. Learn how your players need to communicate on the floor and how your setter needs to receive feedback from the hitters. You'll see how the team adjusts between balls to switch the offensive attack with two front row hitters and two back row attackers.
