Unfortunatly there are more systems for seting then Iv had hot dinners.
Now there are loads of different Zones are you refering to Attacking
Zones or Mobilisation zones? I presume that you are refering to attaking
zones. Now we use a 1 to 9 set with backspike just adding a 0 on the end
for ex. a 9 backspike would be a 90 etc.

The sets are devided into 3 catagories, (1) high easy sets, (2) Quick
low sets (where the player hits the ball on the way upp) and (3)
backspike.
1,2,3,4,4+ are all quick sets.

1 is a ball aprox. 1?m in front of you slightly in towards your MB. Your
MB hits it on his way upp. The ball is played hard and moves in a
straight line all the way to the MB hand (you aim).

2 is a ball played aprox. 1?m upp 1m in and is mainly used in
kombinations ie. the diagnal (person playing pos. 2) comes around behind
our MB who fakes the op. block.

3 is a quick middle infront of you where your MB more or less hits the
ball out of your fingers. MOST IMPORTANT the ball must be on its way upp
otherwice the op. block will have time to jump. We want to force their
MB to commit so that we get 1 person block on our high outside (nr:5)

4 is like 3 but behind the setter.

4+ is like nr:1 but behind the setter (I have been setting for years and
this is virtually imposible to do)

HIGH SETS
5 is high outside all the way to the antenna our outside hitter hits it.

7 is high in the middle (1?m to 2m) used mostly in combinations ie. Your
MB comes for a 3 pulls the block upp, fakes the spike when you pos. 2
player comes around and hitts the ball when they have landed.

6 is between 5 and 7.

9 is like 5 but at the other end ie. pos. 2

8 is in between 7 and 9

50, 60, 70, 80, 90 are all backspike at the corosponding places ie. 5,
6, 7, 8, 9. You never set 10, 20 etc.

Good Luck.
