SETTING A 'C' 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 C pass means that the pass is at the dead center of the court and it is not possible to perform a set to the middle front player. When the pass is high, the setter has enough time to get under the ball and execute the set using his/her hands. 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.
