While each player position rotates successively all 6 positions on the
court, you only have to be in your "rotation" position prior to the
contact of the service.  This, combined with substitutions has allowed
specialization to occur in most levels of volleyball beyond

Common specialities include:

OH  Outside hitter  strong-side (left) and weak-side (right)
MH  Middle Hitter/Middle blocker
S   Setter -- team quarterback, calls plays, runs offense

DS  Defensive Specialist (back-row specialist, strong passing skills)
