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.

Volleyballis a game that requires as much defence as it foes affense. Because of the key roles are the center diggers, the net, and as it says in the name, the ball. Imagine playing without a ball or a net. It would be a completely different game, more mental than physical, because you can just imagine the ball would come t you, and wouldn't have to move. The umpire would have a very difficult time keeping up, as they, like everybody else in the world wouldn't be able to see the ball, this could cause many complications, mainly that bad desicions would be made. The net would be unseen also, so the umpire would make some bad calls, not knowing if a layer touched the net, or if the ball did go under, over, or as it is imaginary, through. So to answer your question, the ball and the net.
