Description of a 6-2 and a 5-2 from coach, Thomas Puzio
Two players on the court (opposite each other in the rotation) set when they are in the back row. This means that at all times you have three eligible (front row) attackers in the front row (i.e. 6 attackers and 2 setters). Watch the Video
Easier to learn
Distributes the setting responsibility among two players instead of one
Maintains three front row attackers at all times
The best setter is setting only half the time
Both setters may be a good passer but will only be eligible to pass when in the front row
Only one player on the court is designated the setter and sets every rotation. This means that you only have two eligible (front row) attackers when the setter is in the front row. (i.e. 5 attackers and 1 setter) Watch the video
The best setter on the team sets every ball
More individual instruction time can be devoted to the one setter and the one setter will improve faster with the additional repetitions.
Every set will be consistent because it is set by the same person
In some cases, one setter may set with a different speed and height than another setter which can throw off the rhythm of the attackers
When the setter is in the front row you only have two eligible (front row) attackers
