The outside hitter plays on the front left side of the court. As she rotates through the front row, she will move from middle front or right front to her spot on the left side once the serve crosses the net.
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.

A good left-side hitter knows when to pound the ball (and can do so really well), but they should also know when to use a roll shot or a tip to throw off the other team. Looking for holes in the defense or just to switch things up is always a good idea. A left-side hitter should also be a good passer, both for defense and serve receive.
Outside hitter (also called left side) This player is usually responsible for a majority of the hitting from the outside (left front) position. Often, this player is also one of the primary passers in serve receive. There are usually two outside hitters on the court. Leaping ability and power are two commonly
The other setter (S) is in left front position. In this formation the front row setter is one of the primary passers.
