Question 23 of 24
After taking this assessment, and getting your 1st draft of answers, we recommend going to a court and taking 20-30 live swings off of a serve receive with a setter and having a THIRD PARTY (someone NOT involved in the play) tell you on your good swings and your bad swings the distance, above the antenna, from the antenna or setter and from the net.
If you play at a high level, you should also have a blocker at the net for this exercise so you don't get a false sense of pride with tight sets on an open net.
It is VERY difficult to assess this as the active hitter or setter. MOST players are wildly inaccurate in truly defining their best set. Use a third party. Take lots of time to talk about the characteristics of each set until you are certain, you can describe your best set in detail.
Go through this exercise with each serious partner and multiple times throughout your season. Your game grows, develops and changes so these answers might change. Put 3 events or dates in your calendar for going through this exercise.
