Begin serving for points using my Coach April's overhand jump float serve volleyball tips.
The overhand serve in volleyball, whether standing or jumping is one of the best serves to use to score points from the service line.
My favorite, by far is the standing overhand float serve.
As a coach I think its one of the best types of serves in volleyball a young player learns.
By teaching them the following float serve volleyball drills and tips within 45 minutes they were consistently bombing float serves over the net both cross court and down the line.
Before starting your serving routine, look at the opposing team and decide "where do I want to serve the ball?"
Beginner players just serve the ball over the net, hoping that it gets in.
But you aren't a beginner player.
You are a player with some decent skills who's been playing for a little while and you're looking to get better so you can make a varsity team or an elite club.
So you need to know who or where you are going to serve the ball. You need to have a plan.
The key is to have a game plan in your head.
Once you know where you want to serve, here's what you do next.
You have plenty of time to decide who you're going to serve and then get set up to do so.
Once behind the line take a look at the opposing team's serve receive pattern and look for the player or the area of the court you want to serve to.
If you need to get a few bounces of the ball out of the way while doing this then go ahead.
Once you know where you are going to serve, think Hip. Point your Hip so its pointing exactly where you want the ball to go.
Then do the same with the shoulder of the tossing arm, placing the ball in the hand of this arm.
Now raise the serving arm at a 90 degree angle in the air with your elbow above the level of your ear. Take a quick look at the elbow to be sure, its above the ear.
Contact the Ball
Once the whistle blows take a deep breath and shrug your shoulders.
Then toss the ball so its in front of your right serving arm, swivel hips and hand together.
Watch your hand contact the middle of the ball while you "high five" the ball.
The key before starting your toss is to BREATHE!
This releases tension and forces your brain and body to relax enough for you to settle down and concentrate on your next move.
Now, you should be ready to score aces with these floater serve volleyball tips!

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
