Improve Volleyball Serve Difficulty Quickly By Serving Down The Line

You can improve volleyball serve difficulty by serving deep line to zone 5 to help to take the left side hitter out of the offense forcing them out of system.



Serve Down the line to Volleyball Zone 5.

Especially in varsity volleyball when the left front player is a swing hitter ...a swing hitter means a player, usually the left outside hitter who has two responsibilities...




...by serving the ball deep down the line you

  • force the left side hitter deeper into the back of the court which means she has to cover alot of ground to get back into position to be able to make an approach in order to hit the ball.


Serving the opposing team very deep down the line helps to take the Left Side hitter out of the offense because

a) this forces them to back up and receive the serve from much deeper in the court

-which makes them have to cover more distance on the court to get back to their ideal starting spike approach position and late to getting outside to start their approach.



In varsity volleyball this serving tactic can completely eliminate them as a hitter/attacker in the offense so the setter is forced to have only one or two options -

  • set to the middle blocker or
  • behind her to the right side hitter depending on how many hitters are front row.

Serving Strategy: Play Chess


In other words, "play chess"

-if you see three hitters in the front row use your serve

which leaves only two hitters that your blockers and defenders have to concentrate on.

That puts your team at an advantage, right?

Force the opposing team to do what YOU want them to do just by serving to more strategic places on the court like volleyball zone 5.
