In this volleyball rotation, the setter is in the serving position and will be coming off the back row to set. The middle is going to make their approach to the middle as usual. With the outside hitter and the opposite being flip-flopped, they will hit once in the positions shown, and then switch back to normal after the ball goes over the net.
