Serving a volleyball involves more than just hitting the ball over the net. When executed correctly, it can be a valuable weapon that helps your team win matches.
Each type of volleyball serve has a special purpose. The Standing Float serve moves erratically, making it difficult for opponents to accurately pass or defend it. The powerful Jump Float Serve is difficult for opponents to defend because of its speed. The Topspin Serve curves quickly downward in front of passers and often falls for an ace to win the point.
Although you may prefer one of these serves, be sure to incorporate all three into your game. This will keep your opponents off balance and unsure about what to expect, improving your chance of an ace or an easy put away.
To ensure that you can confidently strike each of these shots, hone your technique with tips from Wyman Khuu, Premier Volleyball Academy National Team coach.
