If you mean between the players on a team, then the signals have to be learned by all of your teammates. Once everyone learns what they mean then they will know to look for them and what they mean. As for "How do you execute them?" Very quickly. It's a fast sport. What really works better than hand signals because you are busy watching the ball and the other players is voice signals. Agree on words that can be called out. "High", "Low", "Spike". Whatever words you want.
im a setter for our school volleyball team. you hold ur hands directly above ur forehead. bend your arms. and you form a triangle with ur thumbs and pointer fingers. slightly bend your fingers.
The inner part of the hand forms a triangle using the thumbs on the bottom of the triangle and connecting the index fingers on the sides of the triangle. Then, as the ball comes down, your elbows bend, as well as your knees (acting as a shock absorber) and your wrists break, slightly toward your face. The middle finger and the 4th finger move forward, guiding the ball in an upward and slightly forward motion, while simultaneously using your legs to push the ball up. As the ball leaves your hand without spinning the ball, your eyes should be in the middle of the triangle.
cross you hands and close you thumbs. : )

When your talking about receiving that ball from a serve, then no. While setters may "get" the ball from a serve to save it from hitting the ground it is never their goal to receive a serve. In most cases, the back row players will receive the serve and try to bump it to the setter who will, in turn, set it to the hitter. In a real game, it doesn't always happen this way of course but that is the basic set up for volleyball play.
A pass is typically used to get the ball to the setter. you hold out your arms and connect your hands to form a triangle shape. you do not swing your arms, but rather, let the ball come to you.
There really isn't such thing as a forward in volleyball, but if you consider a forward to be an offensive player then the correct volleyball term for it would be an attacker
Volleyball does not have a quarterback position.
It stands for "Special Exempt". From the tennis warehouse forums : "A player qualified to and who wishes to apply for Special Exempt status must do so by personally notifying either verbally or in writing the ITF Supervisor/Referee prior to the time that the qualifying draw is made. If there are not sufficient Special Exempt places in the main draw for all the applicants, the players shall be selected in accordance with their rankings on the latest approved computer ranking list available. If there is no qualifying competition, or if Special Exempts are not needed prior to the time that the qualifying draw is made, then the places in the Main Draw reserved for Special Exempts shall become places for Direct Acceptances. The first two Alternates on the Acceptance List can preserve their eligibility for unused Special Exempt places by personally contacting the ITF Supervisor/Referee on-site prior to the qualifying sign-in Deadline. If the Special Exempt places are used then these Alternates are not eligible to play the qualifying. If a Special Exempt place is not so preserved, any unused Special Exempt places(s) shall be filled by entered players who have signed in for Qualifying to be selected in accordance with the rankings on the Acceptance List. If prior to the Entry Deadline it is established that there will be no Special Exempts into a Futures Tournament or week 1 of a Satellite Circuit because there are no "Qualified Tournaments" in the week preceding the Tournament, then the places reserved in the Main Draw for Special Exempts shall become places for Direct Acceptances and will be indicated as such on the Acceptance List."
Hurting your hands in volleyball is almost a given. I have been playing volleyball for over six years and I have jammed at least three fingers each season. Additionally, I have torn ligaments in my thumb and I need to get surgery. Volleyball is all about your hands. Your hands are involved in every play. If you are a setter, you need strong hands and fingers because your fingers are used in every play.
I play as a setter on my team. My coaches said that the setter is important because they set the ball to a middle, outside, or right side to spike it over the net. However, I disagree. The most important position on a volleyball team is a D.S. or libero (defensive players- back row). This is because in order to set the ball for the hitters to hit it, you need a good pass. The libero and D.S.'s job is to get all of the mean hits that come over the net onto your side up into the air so the setter can set the ball up for your hitters to hit meanly over the net. If you do not have a good defense, then you cannot have a good offense. If you do not have a good serve, then you will most likely not make it on a volleyball team because the serve is what gets the ball in play. Once the ball is in play your defense can get it up, the setter can set it to a hitter- or a 10 (back row attack). This is the MOST IMPORTANT PART IN VOLLEYBALL! If the ball does not go in play, you will lose points and the game wont be fun- AT ALL!!! J.H- I would have to AGREE the libero(middle back defensive player) is the most important. Think about it, the libero not only passes the ball, but he saves the ball the majority of the time. The Libero is a triple threat on his own, due to the fact that it exhibits the player with the most control, which is the main concept of volleyball.
