Setters use volleyball hand signals to call the volleyball plays which are sets delivered at different speeds and locations to hitters to hit along the net. The setter is responsible for running her team's offense. When her team is in service receive, at the beginning of each rally, its her job to tell her hitters what type of set each of them are going to get if.
In volleyball, the setter is the primary shot caller. The different offensive plays are often communicated via hand signals. A setter will share with his teammates what he has in mind for the next play via hand signals. Communicating this way allows the hitters to be aware of their role on the next point.

Volleyball setter hand signals are used by the setter to "run a play" with a series of slow or fast sets. While fast sets are lower to the net, slow sets are higher sets pushed 8 - 10 feet well above the top of the net. Each player on offense will get a hand signal as to the type of set they will get.
This rule is the bain of every setter to have ever played the game. When hand setting it is very easy to double contact the ball. If the ball doesn’t enter or leave the hands at the exact same time an official will often call a double contact. A referee would indicate that a double touch has occurred by simply showing 2 up on one hand.
