Volleyball rotation positions Anyone that has played even the most basic game of volleyball knows that each of the six players on the court takes a turn serving. The service order is not random – at the beginning of the game, players line up in a specific position, and they need to maintain that order during the game.
In this volleyball rotation, the setter is in the serving position and will be coming off the back row to set. The middle is going to make their approach to the middle as usual. With the outside hitter and the opposite being flip-flopped, they will hit once in the positions shown, and then switch back to normal after the ball goes over the net.
Volleyball Rotations - Creating a serving order (team line up) Before the game starts, the coach needs to fill out a line up sheet. The order of players is very important. Basically, if you have two setters, they need to play opposite each other in the line up. Same with other positions. For example, middle hitters line up opposite each other.
