  2. 2. VOLLEYBALL SERVING TECHNIQUE Feet In order to begin the serve we first start with your feet positioning. Right handers place your right foot behind your left foot so your Right foot is perpendicular to your Left. Your left foot should be pointed Exactly in the direction of where you want to serve. Upper Body - Left Arm Extend your Left arm straight out in front of your palm facing up. Place ball in the palm of this hand. TOSS The toss is one of the most important elements of the serve. Make sure the starting position for your Left arm is straight out in front of you - not down by your waist. With a straight Left arm Toss the ball no more than 2 feet in the air. For practice, while learning, let the ball fall to the ground. A correctly tossed ball will land about 10-12 inches - Every Time. Your toss should be the same EVERY TIME. Two feet up in the air and 10 inches in front of your LEFT foot. RIGHT ARM Right arm is fully extended with fingertips and palm facing downward lightly covering the top of the ball. After the toss - you step forward shifting your body weight from back foot to front foot to meet the ball. At this moment you begin your arm swing
  3. 3. Types of Volleyball Serving Floaters Float serves are tough to pass because the ball dances in the air making it tough to judge where exactly the ball is going. This floating volleyball movement can also make it difficult for the server to keep the ball in the court. Top spin A top spin can be tough to pass because the ball will drop much faster than a float serve. Top spin serves are especially effective in the women's game. In girls high school and club volleyball, most players don't serve with top spin. With fewer players serving with top spin, there will be fewer passers comfortable passing it because they hardly ever see it. The top spin serve can be a very effective weapon because it's much easier to learn and execute than the floater. On the flip side, a player can shank passes over and over again and develop the mind set they can't pass. Same situation with a hitter that continually puts the ball away or repeatedly gets blocked.
  4. 4. In my opinion, the easiest way to knock a team out of rhythm and keep the momentum of the game going your way is with tough serving. Things to look for... * How tall are the passers? Short players have a tough time passing deep servers. Taller players usually don't like to be served short. * How well does the passer move to pass? Watch for how well a player passes when moving to the left or to the right. Many players are stronger passing when moving to one side compared to the other. * How well does the passer pass the deep serve? Many passers have become comfortable using their hands to overhead pass the deep serve. Other players only try to pass this ball with their forearms. It can be much more difficult to get in position and pass the deep ball with the forearms, especially for shorter players. Often the best hitter on the team is also one of the best passers. Look to see if a hitter is lined up to help serve receive. You can use this to your advantage by serving them deep pushing them out of the offensive system. * How well does the passer pass the short serve? You will often discover players not wanting to forearm pass and take every ball with their hands. Serve players that like to take the serve with their hands short, forcing them to forearm pass the ball. Notice if any front row players have backed up to help out with serve receive. You can place your serves in the area of the court that forces the front row player to pass. Forcing front row players to pass can disrupt a teams offense because the front row player will then need to hit after they pass the ball. Is Serving Zones Really the Best Strategy? Typically, the court is divided up in to zones, 1 through 6. volleyball court diagram Zone 1 is Right Back, zone 2 is Right Front, zone 3 is Middle Front, zone 4 is Left Front, zone 5 is Left Back, and zone 6 is Middle Back.
  5. 5. When first learning how to play volleyball, it's good to have your players practice serving accuracy by trying to serve zones. However, for more advanced volleyball players, I don’t like the term “court zones” when talking about where to serve. Players need to learn to serve making passers move, disrupting the opponent's offense. This should be done not by serving zones, but by making players move the way you want them to. Instead of just hoping your opposition has a hard time pass ------------------- ------------------- ------------------- ------------------- ------------------- Digging Volleyball Digging Start in a defensive position lined up around the block. Know what area your blockers are going to take up (line or angle). The basics of volleyball techniques for digging... * Be up on your toes and on the balls of your feet, not on your heels. * Be ready to get in a stable position to dig a hard driven ball.
  6. 6. * Be ready to move to run down a shot or tip. * Arms are bent and in front of you ready to react to dig a ball with your forearms or to play a ball overhead. * Eyes are focused on the hitter watching for any hint as to what they are going to do.
  7. 7. SETTING Volleyball Setting Volleyball techniques for setting consists of the following steps… 1. volleyball techniques setting Get to the target. The second ball is always the setters. Seeing as though they know this ahead of time, setters should be lined up properly and ready to move to the target. 2. Be ready to move from the target. If possible, take your first step directly to where the ball is being passed. The better judgment the setter has, the better job they will do in moving straight to where the ball is going. If they leave too early or they make a bad judgment, they’ll step in the wrong direction and not make it there as quickly. 3. Beat the ball to the spot. Setters should try anticipating where the ball is going to be passed. By paying attention to how tough the serve is and watching the way their passer is handling the ball, they may get a good read on the pass. 4. Stop and set. Everything done up until now dictates how well the setter is able to stop and set.
