If you're a volleyball player or coach, you know that setting is one of the most important skills in the game. Setting is what sets up your hitters to score points and win games. And to be a great setter, you need to have great accuracy and consistency.
That's where the REN Athletics On-Point Volleyball Setting Target comes in.
In this article, we'll take a closer look at the REN Athletics On-Point Volleyball Setting Target training tool and how it can help you improve your setting skills.
Context: Volleyball and Athletic Training
Volleyball is a highly technical sport that requires a combination of physical and mental skills. Players need to be fast, agile, and strong, but they also need to be able to think quickly and make split-second decisions. Volleyball training typically involves a combination of skill-specific drills, strength and conditioning exercises, and mental training to help players develop all the skills they need to be successful.
One of the most important skills in volleyball is setting. The setter is the player who sets up the ball for the hitter to attack. Good setting requires precision, accuracy, and consistency. Setting drills are an important part of volleyball training, and coaches are always looking for ways to help their players improve their setting skills.
While this article focuses on honing your volleyball skills-specific to setting, make sure to also spend time in the gym or a strength training facility to work on your athletic movements as a setter (that translate to the game).

How the REN Athletics On-Point Volleyball Setting Target Works
The REN Athletics On-Point Volleyball Setting Target works by providing a visual cue for the setter to aim at. When the setter aims at the target, they can see immediately whether they hit the target or missed it.
The target can be used in a variety of ways to help players improve their setting skills. Here are some examples:
- Solo Setting Drills: The target can be used for solo setting drills. The setter stands in front of the target and sets the ball at the target. The target provides immediate feedback on accuracy and consistency.
- Partner Setting Drills: The target can be used for partner setting drills. Two players stand facing each other, and one player sets the ball at the target. The other player catches the ball and sets it back at the target. This drill can be done with or without a net.
- Game-like Setting Drills: The target can be used for game-like setting drills. The target can be set up on a wall or net, and players can practice setting the ball to different spots on the court. This drill helps players develop their setting skills in a game-like situation.
