Volleyball serving is probably the most essential skill in volleyball. Anybody is capable of doing it – you don’t need to be tall or abnormally powerful. Just about all you have got to do is practice (a little exercise doesn’t hurt either).
Serving is one ability in volleyball you are able to practice on your own. Simply find a gym, obtain a basket of volleyballs and practice like crazy. If you are able to become an expert in the skill of the serve and keep your opposition guessing, they won’t have the ability to come up with a great pass.When they can’t make a perfect pass, they are going to probably not get a perfect set. If they can’t get a perfect set,they’re going to have problems putting the ball away and your blockers should be able to line up on their hitter earlier because it is going to be apparent where the ball is going to be set. It all begins with the serve.
This is why you must master it. The subsequent directions are for a right-handed server. Lefties, like many things in life, you do the opposite.

- For right handed servers, left foot should be slightly in front of right foot.

- The toss should be about 18 inches in the air and should be even with the shoulder of the hitting hand. The toss should be slightly in front of the body (toward the net).
- Players should draw back their hitting arm with elbow parallel to the floor and wide open hand even with the ear.
- As the player draws back, the shoulders should open slightly.As the ball reaches the highest point, the player should swing the hitting arm forward (keeping an open hand) and contact the ball at the top of their swing with the heel of the open hand. The shoulders and torso should rotate toward the net.
