In the clip below Coach Kordes focuses on the 5-1 offense. Coach believes the 5-1 offense is the most popular offense. The 5-1 is typically utilized when a coach feels that they have one very good setter and they want that person to remain in that role and stay in the match at all times. Typically you are looking for a very skilled player. One whose setting skills are superior to all of the other potential setters on the team. In addition the setter in the 5-1 offense should have great communication skills, be aggressive and demonstrate tremendous leadership. The setter should be someone that can lift her team up and change momentum by talking to her team. If you have that setter then the 5-1 might be right for your team.
