Volleyball Rotation for a 5-1 in a
three-passer system
• KEY: Front row players are shown with a black outline!
• 5-1 means there are five hitters and one setter. With two setters (6-2), the
rotations with the setter in the back row are used for both setters.
• The most basic rule is that all hitters have a home—outside, middle, or
opposite. Setters and opposites always play right-side defense.
• Most teams have their defensive specialist substitute for at least one middle
hitter in the back row.
• This three-passer system assumes the best passers to be the outside hitters
and that three players can cover most serves. Variations can be made to let a
front-row player cover very short serves or to allow right-side hitters to pass
instead.
• Not all teams place outsides in middle-back and middles on the left side as
shown throughout this PowerPoint. Doing so as shown permits the outside
hitter to hit a back-row attack from the middle of the court.
• Players move much more than this presentation shows
– Middle blockers and outside hitters work together to “double block” the other team’s hitters.
– All of the players move to cover their team’s hitter in case of a block.
– For each hitting situation, the defense shifts into a specific arrangement.

Sometimes a team
will have the outside
hitter hit on the
right side and then
switch after sending
the ball over.
