SETTING A 'B' PASS Learn volleyball skills and volleyball practice from Dr. Gylton Da Matta, a member of the International Volleyball Federation technical development committee. Watch how to integrate this drill into your volleyball lessons. Setting a B pass consists of performing a set of a pass that is off the net and/or lands close to the 10-ft line (3-meter line). The second contact (after a pass or dig) is considered a “set”. The player who sets is called the “setter”. Usually, a set is made with two hands overhead. A bump set is made with a player’s forearms. A player can also set the ball over the net on the first, second, or third contact with the same motion.
