Using silent communication is one of the best ways to convey to hitters where they are going to hit. If you are a hitter, make sure you look at your setter before each play. Plays might change from point-to-point, so keep making sure you know what you are running. Additionally, know that if there is a bad pass, a trick play needs to turn to an audible and you need to call something easier to set, especially if the pass is far behind the 10 ft. line.
