So one very common hand signal that isn’t displayed on the chart but is regularly used is the set point hand gesture. When a team is on set point an official will clench a fist on the side of the team who has set point and hold it directly up in the air. This indicates to all players, officials and spectators that a team has set point.
Extend the arm to the side of the team that will serve. Raise the forearms front and back, and twist them around the body. Place the palm of one hand over the fingers of the other, held vertically (forming a “T”), and then indicate the requesting team. Show a yellow card for a warning; red card for a penalty.
