Best Answer

The Setter is the most important player; it puts the ball out to the attacker (spiker). It is usually the second contact that a team makes with the ball. It is an overhead pass used to change the direction of the dig and puts the ball in the air in such a way that it can be driven by an attack (spike) into the opponent's court.

It means that you set the ball up so you bump it up in the air for the spiker to slam it down to the other side
