Formation 5-1: Right Side Hitter Receives

The "Formation 5-1: Right Side Hitter Receives" is an advanced formation with 1 setter (S - highlighted in blue color). Instead the team gets a dedicated right side hitter, also known as the opposite hitter or diagonal hitter. As the name suggests, the right side hitter plays on the right side of the court, opposite the setter.

The primary role of the right side hitter is to provide offensive firepower from the right side of the court. They typically have strong hitting abilities and are responsible for attacking the ball from the right side of the net. They also contribute to the team's blocking efforts by trying to block the opposing team's hitters on the right side of the net.

The right side hitter is also responsible for serving and receiving serves. Since they are positioned on the back row during the serve receive, they are expected to be good passers and defenders. In this formation the right side hitter will receive serves but also see the more advanced formation 5-1 where the right side hitter does not receive serves. Keep in mind that fewer responsibilities means more dedicated training on specific skill sets.
