    If the initial pass on serve receive is placed well the team will be in system. The setter shouldn't have to move much to receive the pass. Ideally the pass is maybe a half a meter to a meter off the net. If the initial pass is good the setter will typically have all four offensive options: middle attacker, the back-row outside hitter coming up the middle behind the 3m line (often called a pipe or bic), the front row OH (typically on the left side), and the opposite coming out of the either the front row or back row (typically on the right side). Four offensive options are really hard to block; usually the set will result in a 1 on 1 match which hitters almost always win.

    If the setter has to move much to set, the team is called out of system. For example, when the setter is pulled off the net to behind the 3m line to make the set the team is out of system. Two bad things have basically happened: (1) setting with accuracy is now more difficult (the angles, distances, and timing are all worse), and (2) the setter loses offensive options. Typically the setter loses at least the middle attacks. It's hard to set the middle attacker if the middle is like three meters in front of the setter. Now it's much easier for the defensive team to make a good blocking read and get at least a double block up.

    Great explanation. Thanks.

    And earlier you opined that BYU should improve its out of system play.
    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.
