My setter keeps getting called for double hits, anywhere from 1 to 3 a set. I was looking for some drills that might "quiet" her hands. Possible reasons: bad passes to the setter; not knowing when to forearm pass rather than set; my hitters are not advanced enough yet to be able to hit lower sets so she is having to push them pretty high.
Typically, volleyball setters that set the ball much slower will tend to contact the ball with more fingers on the ball. This extra prolonged contact allows for greater control for more accurate setting placement. Also, with a longer contact, you can take more spin off the ball which can be good for avoiding double hit ball handling calls.
