What's an ace in volleyball?
When you're the server for your team and you serve a ball either a float serve or a jump serve, so tough that the opposing can't get it back over the net or cannot make a play out of it, then you've made what's called a direct point or an 'ace" for your team and you've also earned the right for your team to serve again.
An ace in volleyball is what they call that serve that just scored that direct point and that serve gets recorded in the team stats as a credit to you....that's your ace, a point, scored for your team.
In order to score points in a volleyball game using all of the six skills in volleyball you need the help of a teammate.
There's only ONE skill...where you can score direct points ALL BY YOURSELF without the help of a teammate...and that's from the service line ...making a tough serve that no one can pass or make a play out of and that..my friend, is an ace in volleyball definition.
That gives the server alot of power if used wisely.
This should motivate you to work on making your serve so tough that you alone can score several points for your team every time you go back to serve. That should be your goal.
Because when you become known as a tough server that scores points for your team...that's what gets you more playing time and keeps you on the court.
And you don't have to be the libero or the middle blocker in order to have a tough serve...all the coach cares about is putting the dependable player on the court that can get the team points in each set...let's make sure that's you!
