Below is a volleyball set diagram. It outlines the different sets we used when I coached collegiately at Brown, and how we defined them. This is based on a system popularized by the USA men back in the 1980s. They divided the net into 9 zones of 1 meter each. On top of that they added set heights ranging from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest (fastest).
The most important part of understanding volleyball zones is knowing the strategies behind serving in a particular area. Each half of the volleyball court is divided into the same zones. Zone 1: Back right square. Zone 2: Front right square. Zone 3: Front middle square. Zone 4: Front left square. Zone 5: Back left square. Zone 6: Back middle square.

Position 4 being called zone 4 etc. Playing Positions in Volleyball Volleyball positions in a team: Outside hitter (also called wing spiker, left side) Right side hitter (wing spiker, right side) Opposite Hitter (attacker) Setter; Middle Blocker (center, middle hitter) Libero
If there is a side-out, and the opposing team is awarded the serve, that team rotates one position clockwise as shown in the above diagram (i.e. the zone 2 player moves to zone 1 and serves, the zone 1 player moves to zone 6, the zone 6 moves to zone 5, and so on).
