Tracking Rotations

Here in the Commonwealth of Virginia, the pre-season practices will begin next month on the 15th. I'm planning on working.

What tips/tricks do you use to track rotations? I mainly track the setter and their opposite. I continue to improve, but I'm always looking to get better.

For beginners, tracking setter and opposite, knowing whether the libero is before (normally) or after (not nearly as often) the setter, is a good start.

As you get more experienced, recognizing certain serve receive patterns, which player is playing which position, and which position should be in which spot on those normal patterns, will help.

In any case, try to develop a system in which you can recognize by looking at the players and their positions, and not nearly as much looking at your lineup card.

I also try to keep track of which rotation a team is in. If a team is in rotation 1, for example, the setter is RB. The libero will (usually -- see Felix's comment) be CB. The setter's opposite will be LF, the middle will be CF. That only leaves two players "unaccounted for" -- and I'm working on that.

Also, Scrapper posted a good video from his association on rotations and where the players are . Search for it on here (it's been a couple of years, so it won't show up in the list of threads without searching for it).

Oh, good! I'm getting more experienced, and didn't know it.

I found myself doing this during last season. On some nights I'm pick up on the team's rotations better/easier/sooner than on other nights.

It's a constant process trying to get better with it. I've been doing this for over 20 years, and being off for 10 months certainly didn't help. Just keep at it, and keep up on the new, different ways teams will try to stack their players legally.
